They call it “the country’s largest indoor farm show.” This year they might have also called it “the country’s happiest indoor farm show.” To say that there was a pervasive feel of optimism to this year’s National Farm Machinery Show would be understating the mood in Louisville, Ky., February 16-19.

It’s difficult to remember when both attendees and exhibitors were as optimistic about agriculture as they are this year. As one exhibitor told Farm Equipment, “It’s amazing what $6 a bushel corn can do for your attitude.”

This photo gallery represents just some of what our editors saw at the show last week. We’ll have more for you in the March issue of Farm Equipment.
