The forecast for the 2017 Farm Progress Show is so bright Don Tourte has to wear shades inside the media tent!
Tourte, who is Penton Agriculture vice president and Farm Progress Show manager, says the weather is great and the crowds are here, despite the downturn in the farm economy. “I say, maybe farmers need the Farm Progress Show more in a farm economy like this than they do when things are great,” said Tourte. “You need to look at what’s the edge, that little thing or big thing that’s going to make you more money.”
