From 1924 through 1941, Prairie Farmer sponsored corn husking contests. Early in 1953, Prairie Farmer joined forces with WLS-Radio in Chicago with the idea to host a farm event even better than the mechanical corn picking contests taking place around the Midwest at that time. It is this group who is credited with creating the idea of hosting a field day where farmers could see first hand the progress being made in farming equipment, along with seed varieties and ag chemicals.

The first Farm Progress Show took place on October 2, 1953 on the Earl Bass farm in Armstrong, Illinois and hosted over 75,000 folks. This show offered visitors an opportunity to see equipment, seed and chemicals as well as fire-fighting demonstrations, sheep dog trials, stage entertainment, a fiddlers' contest and even the WLS Barn Dance. In subsequent years, the show evolved to include seed test plots and field demonstrations. While some of the programs evolved from our original program, we've stayed true to American Agriculture and to bringing the best of American Agriculture to our audience.

The Farm Progress Show is the 'Super Bowl of Agriculture' with its huge exhibit field and product demonstrations.
