The fall farm show season is a great time for farmers to catch up on what’s new, reconnect with suppliers and meet up with other farmers too. Every year Husker Harvest Days brings together a diverse group of exhibitors who show their latest tools, tech, and innovations for visitors.

Over time, something has evolved at this show site, which has seen a dramatic remodel in the past few years. Along with that significantly upgraded space has come something special, the creation of a unique space where visitors can see a lot of products in action. In this episode of Around Farm Progress, Matt Jungmann, events director, Farm Progress, talks about what sets this show apart, making it unique among all farm shows in the country.

Check out the conversation, which happened just a few days after Farm Progress Show – that’s right the same team puts on two massive shows in just three weeks. We were in ‘recovery’ mode from one show but Jungmann was already on site in Nebraska with good news about crop demonstrations and more. Give it a listen.
