Quinn says he's overwhelmed at seeing all of the new advances in the farm industry.  The ag industry is the biggest booster of the state's economy but Quinn says he wants to reach beyond the borders of Illinois and even the U.S.  He says he's looking forward to making trade agreements with countries like Korea and Panama.  Meanwhile, anyone who's interested in checking out the Farm Progress Show has until 4:00 p.m. Thursday to see what it's all about.
