Farm Progress has announced it has extended their contract with Brush College, LLC., confirming Farm Progress Show’s biennial location in Progress City USA at Richland Community College in Decatur, Illinois. The contract enables the show to continue in both Illinois and Iowa for decades to come.
“Since being selected in 2005 as the first permanent site to host the Farm Progress Show, the relationship between Richland Community College [owner of Brush College LLC] and Farm Progress has grown into a great partnership opening tremendous opportunities for the Decatur region and the companies participating in the Show. We look forward to hosting the future shows,” said Greg Florian, Vice President of Finance and Administration at Richland Community College.
The first show at Richland Community College was held in 2005 and since then has continued to grow. In 2007 paved roads were added followed by three expansions of the exhibit field over the course of nine shows. The Farm Progress Show alternates between its two long-term locations in Decatur, IL and Boone, IA.
This year’s Farm Progress Show will take place from August 30th to September 1st in Boone, IA.
