Max Armstrong looks at how the crowd changes through the course of the National Farm Machinery Show. Max also notes that during his visits he sees farmers from across the country, but he also shares how the later-week crowd changes to the part-time farmer. And Max notes how this show has become a kind of social event for farmers. But he adds that when farmers come to the show, they’ve got a list of what they want to see.

Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
