In addition, the show featured a full lineup of educational programs and tours focused on agricultural production. The massive event covers 80 acres of show exhibit area along with an additional 600 acres of land for live field demonstrations.

The show attracts an average of more than 140,000 farmers, industry professionals, FFA students and others in the agricultural field from the United States and Canada.

Stan Ernst was honored for his work with the show, which included leading the program entitled “Question the Authorities,” which still exists as “Ask the Experts.” Louis McFarland was recognized for his leadership and oversight on construction projects at the show, including land improvement projects throughout the show grounds.
