Tom Steever, Dave Russell and I (Cyndi Young) are all sweating it out at the 2007 Farm Progress Show at Decatur, Illinois today. There is a nice breeze, but temperatures are in the mid-90's this afternoon.
I have covered about 20 Farm Progress Shows and I must say, it was never before so painless to get in to the show. No traffic jams. Parking was a breeze. The streets are paved with asphalt so we're not covered with dust and dirt and grime.
There are numerous news conferences being held here in the Media Tent sponsored by New Holland. Dave Russell served as the moderator for a panel discussion sponsored by the United Soybean Board earlier today.
