A Happy Farm Progress Show

Chuck Zimmerman

I am worn out and not ashamed to admit it. The Farm Progress Show was not only busy as usual but upper 90 degree temperatures and a media tent that hovered around 100 degrees inside half the time contributed. Cindy and I have a lot of interviews to share in the coming week. So let’s get started.

Before leaving the show on Thursday I spoke with Mark Lovig, Operations Manager. Mark is the guy you see everywhere. He seemed to be a happy camper as the show was winding down. The roads were in great shape and there’s more work that will be done on them before the next show. Attendance was strong although the drought sure hit the area hard. All field demos went off without a hitch and had a lot attendance. The FPS crops weren’t bin busters but had just enough rain to come through pretty good. Mark is already looking forward to 2013 in Decatur, IL.
