We’re a week away from the 2011 Farm Progress Show and the Illinois Corn office is hopping as we put all the final details in place!

Be sure to visit us at Booth #250, directly across from the John Deere display area. You won’t be able to miss us. We’ll be the booth with two NASCAR race cars on display in front! Both Clint Bowyer’s Sprint Cup car and Kenny Wallace’s Nationwide car will be on display.

If you come to the show on Wednesday, be sure to “Catch Kenny” as he’ll be visiting our booth on Wednesday.

In addition to the NASCAR fun, you’ll find all sorts of other information inside the tent. Everything from burdensome regulations, ethanol myths, new congressional maps, and farm bill issues will be the topics of many conversations.

Do you know the new proposed Congressional district you’ll fall in? Don’t worry, we have the maps.

Don’t know how to answer those pesky anti-ethanol claims? Don’t worry, we have the answers.

Feel like the EPA is breathing down your neck? Don’t worry, we’ll tell you how to handle that.

And if you are finding it harder and harder to talk to your neighbors, and everyone else for that matter, we’ll have a “Farmer’s First Aid Kit” for you to take home. It breaks down how you can more effectively talk about what you do on your farm.

The Farm Progress Show is the largest outdoor farm show and it’s for sure THE place to be next week.  We hope to see you there!
