Master Farmers at FPS

Slideshow: Here’s a look at the Master Farmer awards program held on Sept. 2 at the Farm Progress Show in Decatur, Ill.

The 2021 Farm Progress Show concluded on Sept. 2 with an awards program recognizing the 2020 and 2021 Prairie Farmer Master Farmers.  

The 2020 Master Farmers awards program was canceled due to the pandemic. Therefore, a combined 2020 and 2021 awards program emceed by farm broadcaster Max Armstrong was held during the Farm Progress Show. Past Master Farmers, friends, family, show exhibitors and show attendees crowded the Hospitality Building to recognize seven exceptional farmers.

After the awards reception, light refreshments were provided and participants were able to congratulate the Master Farmers, catch up and make new connections.
