Last week, I attended the Farm Progress Show near Decatur, Illinois. Yes, it's primarily a show for farm business, especially row-crop farming. However, there was plenty to see in the livestock and small equipment arenas, as well, including new models of mowers, ATVs, tractors and attachments, and hand-held equipment. Obviously, focus on smaller acreages and the rural lifestyle market remains strong, even at the larger farm shows.
