Farm Progress America, September 1, 2021

Max Armstrong offers a report on a unique 'barn raising' at the 2021 Farm Progress Show

Max Armstrong shares the story of a demonstration at the Farm Progress Show. The QLyft system from FBI Buildings involves building the roof and structure on the ground. Once complete, the building is lifted up and the walls locked in place. This is a safer approach since workers are no longer 20 to 30 feed in the air attaching the roof. At the show FBI will do a barn raising several times each day. Make plans to attend.

Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
