For the 2017 Farm Progress Show held in Decatur, Ill., Farm Equipment sent 10 staffers to scope out booths and interview manufacturers to find the latest new product innovations and advancements.
The Farm Equipment team took to the road this winter to interview manufacturers and find the latest, cutting-edge products. With a mix of model improvements and upgrades and new products, the winter farm shows debuted a variety of planting equipment, precision farming technology, hay and forage products, tillage systems and more.
We visited the National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, Ky., from Feb. 15-17. Held at the Kentucky Exposition Center, the 2017 show covered 1.2 million square feet and featured more than 880 exhibitors.
Farm equipment manufacturers are responding to and, in some cases, anticipating farmers’ needs in designing new products. This was evident in the many new developments rolled out during the 2016 Farm Progress Show.
