2013 Farm Progress ShowThe 2013 Farm Progress Show is underway in Decatur, Illinois and it is a hot one this year – both in terms of temperature and attendance.

Don Tourte, V.P. of Sales for Farm Progress America, says there’s a record number of exhibitors (70 new ones this year) requiring them to add a new street. Every major manufacturer is showcasing their newest products and technology and the streets are filled with farmers from all over the world.[wpaudio url=”http://zimmcomm.biz/farm-progress/fps-13-tourte.mp3″ text=”Interview with Don Tourte”]

Show Manager Matt Jungmann, Show Manager says there’s lots going on at the show this week, but one thing not going on is field demonstrations, thanks to the cooler temperatures experienced earlier this summer.
