DECATUR, IL- The biggest agricultural convention in the world is happening just to our east this week. The Farm Progress show is in Decatur, Illinois. 

They switch locations each year between Decatur and Boone, Iowa.
So Iowans are very familiar with this huge event.
Hundreds of thousands of people have come from all over the world to spend the next few days in Decatur.
Whether they're trying to find tractors or scoping out seeds -- people say it's exciting to see how much has changed.
