Reminiscing about two big farm shows, and what's to come

The Around Farm Progress podcast shares some interesting history about Farm Progress Show and Husker Harvest Days

What happens when two equipment and tech loving editors get together to talk farm shows? This week on the Around Farm Progress podcast you can find out. Tom Bechman, Indiana Prairie Farmer, looks back on 40 years of attending, covering, and working at the shows with the show host.

Both are farm show lovers. But did you know that Farm Progress editors used to have a different job at the show? And what is the benefit of the two-site permanent biennial approach to the Farm Progress Show? And what innovation did the Farm Progress editors develop that helps them capture information on the new products on display at the show?

Listen in to get some interesting boots-on-the-ground history of what many call the World's Fair of Agriculture – in truth we used to call it the Super Bowl of Agriculture, but there could be trademark trouble, so we switched.
