Nation’s Largest Outdoor Farm Show Highlights the Best in Agriculture
Make plans today to visit the Farm Progress Show, Aug. 27-29 in Decatur, Ill., to experience the newest, the biggest and the best agriculture has to offer.
“The Farm Progress Show is where we celebrate agriculture,” says Matt Jungmann, Farm Progress Show Director. “It’s where producers from all over gather, meet and learn; where major manufacturers choose to roll out their newest offerings and ag families take a break from their daily routine to immerse themselves in the wider agricultural community. This is where tradition and business have come together for 66 years.”
The three-day event provides an unparalleled learning opportunity for producers to hear from experts about the latest developments in marketing, management and production with seminars presented daily. This includes a daily market price outlook session presented by Farm Futures Sr. Market Analyst, Bryce Knorr.
