The 2015 Super Bowl of Agriculture wrapped up Thursday from Progress City on the campus of Richland Community College and leaders and organizers are hailing this year's show a huge success.

One reason for that is because of the return of the field demonstrations. According to Matt Jungmann, Events Manager with Farm Progress, the field demos weren't able to be done the last few times around in Decatur, and the fact they returned in 2015 was huge. He says so many aspects of the three-day event were very successful.

Stu Ellis organized a new addition to this year's event. The UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) show and he indicates farmers are asking him great questions about the UAV's, also called drones.

Jungmann says the crowds were phenomenal the first two days of the show and Thursday was slower but he says that is the type of crowd that intentionally comes to talk to the exhibitors ready to make decisions about products.

Organizers all say the show was great and thank everyone with Richland Community College and the community of Decatur that helped make a success.
