The 2013 Farm Progress Show takes place Aug. 27-29 in Decatur, Ill. The exhibit field is open to visitors from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday, and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday.
The Farm Progress Show is the nation’s largest outdoor farm event, annually hosting nearly 600 exhibitors displaying new farm equipment, tractors, combines and farm implements, seed and crop protection products, and many additional farm supplies and services. Producers from the U.S. and around the world attend this industry-leading annual agricultural event.
Ag manufacturers and suppliers from across the country and around the world are exhibitors. Field demonstrations are a show mainstay. Each show day, field demos include side-by-side tillage techniques, GPS and precision equipment, and tractor and combine performance comparisons on hundreds of corn acres available for harvesting.
Live cattle-handling demonstrations include the newest cattle chutes, equipment, animal health products and work techniques. Additionally, the show features restored antique machinery, arts and crafts displays, horse training demonstrations and entertainment.
The show is a learning opportunity for producers and includes a wide variety of marketing, management and production seminars.
Admission is $15 for adults, $8 for ages 13-17, and ages 12 and under are free. Discounted advance adult admission tickets are available now on the show’s website.
