COUNTRY Financial brings oasis to Farm Progress Show®

FREE cooling station key to a healthy day of learning and ag-venture

July 18, 2017

COUNTRY Financial is giving Farm Progress Show® guests a way to unwind and relax in the comfort of a shaded tent throughout the nation’s largest outdoor farm event in Decatur, Aug. 29-31.

With Central Illinois meteorologists forecasting high temperatures in late August, COUNTRY Financial is encouraging Farm Progress Show goers to take time to cool off and rehydrate while out on site in our COUNTRY Financial cooling station.

“Prolonged heat and sun exposure can make for an uncomfortable experience at Farm Progress Show,” said Eric Vanasdale, senior loss control representative at COUNTRY Financial. “During the excitement and fun, it’s important to recognize when your body needs to rest and recover. Our tent can help do that for you.”

Tips to keeping cool and comfortable

  • Wear a hat, handkerchief, and/or sunglasses
  • Stay hydrated and eat healthy snack
  • Wear sunblock and light colored clothing
  • Wear closed toe, comfortable walking shoes

Have a cup of lemonade on us

In addition to following our safety tips, attendees can stop by the COUNTRY Financial tent for a FREE cup of lemonade and a FREE hand fan. COUNTRY Financial will be giving away 5,000 fans and plans to pour more than 10,000 complimentary cups of the summertime drink for thirsty guests throughout the three day show.

Enter to win

Visitors can also spin to win for great prizes and enter to win a Crop Copter AgriBundle® with a one year subscription to MORNING FARM REPORT®. The prize is valued at $6,000 and no purchase is necessary.
