The Midwest region of the U.S. is known for its awe-inspiring landscapes, spirited citizens and its significant role as the agricultural center of America. The used John Deere farm equipment that can often be spotted in the fields while farmers gather their harvest is a testament to the impact of machinery on the sector.
This farm equipment is something that inspires many events in the region, and none more prestigious than the annual Northern Illinois Farm Show, according to WCAD News.
The news source reported that farmers, interested onlookers and fans of John Deere tractors gathered at the QCCA Expo Center in Rock Island, Illinois for the annual event, which featured displays, testable farm equipment and goods and prizes from more than 200 vendors.
According to WCAD News, area farmers converged at the expo center to view the latest models of equipment from companies like John Deere, while also getting a chance to speak with fellow agricultural enthusiasts about the latest industry news.
According to the event's website, there were more than 8,000 attendees to the 2012 Farm Show, and a variety of speakers and guest lecturers kept the audience entertained while they were scanning the new equipment.
