GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KSNB) - Husker Harvest Days kicked off Tuesday in Grand Island giving farmers the chance to shop, eat and spend time with other farmers. Companies came from all over the country to show case their products during HHD.

While its nice to see all new equipment, some farmers are still a little hesitant on making big purchases after a rough planting put many of their crops so far behind. One farmer from Chapman says it's definitely concerning him about what's next.

"This year has been a bit of a challenge. It started out with all the extra rain in April," Farmer Greg Greving said. "It just seemed like we has to fight something with weather from start and now we're getting close to finish. This year has just been a year that isn't very profitable so far."

Despite all the challenges they faced this year, farmers spent the day relaxing and enjoying the festival. It will return Wednesday and Thursday morning at 8 am.
