Every year a team of Penton Agriculture editors charge their cameras, and replenish their notebook supply, to hit the exhibit field at the fall farm shows. Their aim was to find new products, and even in a year when the industry is in a cyclical slump, they didn't have to go too far to find those new tools.
Their next challenge, besides organizing all that information, was to choose two favorite products each thought were innovative, and would appeal to farmers and farm families. This has been a tradition for more than 10 years, and one we're happy to help show here in Farm Industry News.
The slides in this gallery were collected, and written up by the time, which included Curt Arens, Nebraska Farmer; Tom J. Bechman, Indiana Prairie Farmer; Lon Tonneson, Dakota Farmer; and Mindy Ward, Missouri Ruralist.
