Wow, it’s hard to believe it’s been two years since we showcased our revolutionary QLYFT building system at the 2021 Farm Progress Show! And now, we’re getting ready for another three full days at the nation’s largest outdoor event in Decatur, Illinois.
For 70 years, the Farm Progress Show has been a beloved tradition for farmers and their families. Imagine learning about the latest agricultural equipment and technology with your parents or grandparents. They’ve instilled in you their passion and strong work ethic, and one day, you’ll proudly carry the torch and pass it down to the next generation.
Ritual or not, this article discusses the three reasons why you and your family should attend the 2023 Farm Progress Show.
But first, you can take a trip down memory lane with us by watching this short recap video of the 2021 outdoor event.
So, What is the Farm Progress Show?
Every day, agribusinesses and manufacturers work hard to design and build products/services that will improve the agriculture industry. The Farm Progress Show is a platform for these forward-thinking companies to showcase their advancements while providing invaluable hands-on knowledge for farmers like you.
This one-of-a-kind event boasts an impressive lineup of 600+ exhibitors from around the world. They’ll proudly display their newest machinery, seed and crop protection products, and a wide array of farm-related services and supplies.
Moreover, field demonstrations are a show staple. You can witness side-by-side tillage techniques to the latest advancements in global positioning systems (GPS) and get a chance to compare the different farm equipment performances.
Do you own livestock? Ranchers can get their hands on the newest cattle chutes, and animal health products, and learn cutting-edge handling techniques.
Furthermore, the Farm Progress Show wouldn’t be an agricultural trade show without antique tractors and country music entertainment.
Fun Fact: The Farm Progress Show rotates between two permanent locations. Boone, Iowa, hosts the event during even-numbered years, while Decatur, Illinois, welcomes attendees during odd-numbered years.
This three-day extravaganza offers an unparalleled learning experience for hard-working producers like yourself.
