Farmers flock to Decatur for the Farm Progress Show
With a narrow window before harvest begins, farmers from across the country joined with ag professionals from around the world at the 2015 Farm Progress Show in Decatur.
The three-day event featured over 650 exhibitors showing off the latest innovations in farm machinery, seed genetics, and grain handling technology, in addition to a multitude of other vendors. Organizers planned for 150,000 visitors, and Show Director Matt Jungmann said attendance appears close to that number.
A number of lawmakers attended the event as well, meeting with constituents, local businesses and using the opportunity to simply to learn more about the state’s leading industry.
