Moultrie, GA (WALB) –  Cameras on their equipment are beaming signals back to a big screen on the midway.

Expo visitors can sit in the shade and watch the equipment work the fields in real time. Tuesday's demonstration was of their newest tractor model.

The Sikes family from Live Oak, Florida made the trip to see the big equipment. Their children participate in Future Farmers of America and enjoy the expo's animals. 

"You have a wide variety of everything that the kids are interested in with FFA and showing animals and everything they can see people from all over, vendors from all over," said Cynthia Sikes.

In the fields, John Deere is showing a self-propelled cotton picker that's running alongside its competition from Case I-H.
