It's show time in Louisville, and I am minutes away from heading to the airport as I type this. The show in question is the 2009 National Farm Equipment Show (Feb. 11 - 14) which is in its 44th year. This show is the place to look over and learn about the latest and greatest in farm equipment and plenty of other farm related tools, software and other doodads.
I really enjoy attending the National Farm Equipment show because it gives me an opportunity to learn, climb over all kinds of machinery and catch up with old friends. It's also a great place for collecting literature, press kits and photos relating to the latest and greatest from your favorite brands.
I won't make it to the show arena today, but I will be there bright and early tomorrow with cameras and notebook in hand. I won't get my blog posted until later in the day tomorrow, but my goal is to give you a glimpse of what's happening at the National Farm Machinery Show as it is happening.
