The 66th Annual Farm Progress Show is planned for August 27-29 in Decatur, Illinois. In the midst of a challenging year for farmers, we welcome the opportunity to come together as an industry and celebrate the past, present and future of agriculture.
Hope to See You at the Show!

Whether you need a complete driveline replacement or simply a yoke, tube, slip sleeve or spline, Weasler can help you get your equipment up and running again quickly and efficiently.”
About the Event
The Farm Progress Show is the largest outdoor farm event in the U.S. Each year, more than 600 exhibitors showcase new farm equipment, including tractors, combines and implements, seed and crop protection products, and other agricultural supplies and services. Exhibitors include leaders in the global agricultural industry, such as John Deere, Case IH, AGCO, Bush Hog, Caterpillar, JCB, Kuhn, Precision Planting, Vermeer and more. In prior years, attendance has topped 160,000 people.
Interactive field demonstrations are mainstays at the show every year. Demos include side-by-side tillage techniques, GPS and precision equipment, tractor and combine performance comparisons and live animal presentations. While combines are a heavy focus, this year attendees can also drive a new Dodge Ram, a new Chevy truck, a Case IH tractor, and a new Deere tractor.
The 2019 show will also host a competitive soil judging contest for Illinois and Indiana Future Farmers of America (FFA) chapters. The event is planned for Tuesday, August 27, the opening day of the show.
