Farm Progress Show is back in Illinois

The nation’s largest outdoor farm event will be held at Progress City in Decatur Aug. 27-29. For 66 years, the Farm Progress Show has celebrated agriculture by bringing tradition and business together. It is where people from all over gather to meet, observe and learn. Major manufacturers roll out their newest offerings, and agricultural families take a break from their daily routines to immerse themselves in the wider ag community. The show rotates annually between Decatur and Boone, Iowa.

Be sure to look for the Illinois Touchstone Energy® Cooperative’s booth at its new location on Lot 217 on Second Street between Central Progress and East Progress Avenue, near Gates 7 and 8. Representatives from several Illinois electric cooperatives will be on hand to share information about cooperatives, safety, energy efficiency and more.

Be sure to catch a Live Line Safety Demo, sponsored by Corn Belt Energy Corporation, where you’ll learn from a safety expert about electricity and how to stay safe around electrical equipment.

Stop by the booth to charge your phone at one of the charging stations and, while you’re there, play a game for a chance at a prize. Cooperative members who present their Co-op Connections card or show the Co-op Connections app will receive a special gift.
