The Farm Progress Show has been called the World's Fair of Agriculture, bringing together the hardware and software of this industry into a single event. When the gates open at Progress City in Decatur Aug. 31, visitors will be able to catch up on a wide range of new tools and technologies. But there's more to farm life than shiny machines.

Dena Morgan, sponsorship and activation manager, Farm Progress, shares some of those special events taking place at the show, including details of the upcoming Lee Brice concert on Wednesday, Sept. 1. That free event, held inside the gates of the show, is just one special feature visitors will find.

She also shares insight on some interesting demonstrations that will be available including exciting flights with the North American Diving Dogs – these animals get serious air. Horse training demonstrations. A unique "barn raising" and the return of Syngenta Square.

Give it a listen.
