ROCK SPRINGS, Pa. — Warily watching the wet-weather forecast, thousands of visitors poured in to Penn State’s Russell E. Larson Agricultural Research Center on Aug. 13-15 near State College to enjoy, buy, and learn at Ag Progress Days.
Farmers, equipment vendors, educators, students, and even foreigners involved in the ag industry gathered to see demonstrations of the latest, newest, biggest and most innovative farm equipment during tours and lectures and along the streets of the farmers’ fair.
Families and youth enjoyed games, favorite foods and farm topics of all kinds. The Pasto Agricultural Museum attracted young and old alike to understand how ag equipment worked in years past, providing comparisons to today’s solar and fuel-powered inventions.
Shows in the horse arena attracted many people, as did field demonstrations in test plots. For all, it was a great success.
