I'm pretty lucky, I think. Part of my job allows me to attend Farm Progress Show and Husker Harvest Days (our two shows) as part of the normal workday routine for an editor. Of course, neither show is routine. This year we didn't have a lot of media events in advance of the show talking about new equipment, but judging from the way my e-mail in-box filled up this week, there's going to be plenty to see.
Farmer Iron deals with the equipment issues of the day, and I expect plenty. Got a note from Bestway that they have a new way to boost sprayer efficiency - I'll check it out and tell you more from the show. Agco, Case IH and Deere are all rolling out new equipment (heck Deere is even changing its numbering system!) and you'll see more of that both here and in print.
I enjoy checking out the new iron at the show. I'll be around the show all week and would love to talk to you. If you see my ugly mug in the Hospitality Tent or at one of the many booths I'll be visiting, get my attention and let's talk. We want to hear what you're dealing with and what information you want us to dig up as winter nears.
See you at the shows!
