When farmers gather in Louisville for the National Farm Machinery Show for 2019, they’ll have a wide range of tech and machinery to check out. And the show offers a long list of seminar and education opportunities as well. Farm Progress has long been involved with seminars at the show through its legacy brands.
For the second year, Farm Futures is the featured sponsor for seminars at the show, and this year the topics range from the latest in tillage tools to a catch-up on how farmers are engaging high-speed planting. These seminars are all held in the South Wing in Room 104 B (the same home these events have had for several years).
Whether you elect to stop for the seminar for the information, and to take a rest where you can enjoy a break but catch up on a hot topic; or you want free cookies. These seminars have what you need. Each of the seminars includes panelists from major companies who will cover the topic. The seminars are moderated by Willie Vogt, editorial director, Farm Progress.
