The conference and trade show will take place at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison, Wisconsin from January 15-17.
The conference and trade show, a production of the Wisconsin Agri-business Association (WABA), will coincide with the organization’s Wisconsin Crop Management Conference. Organizers expect nearly 2,000 attendees from across the Midwest. The trade show features more than 100 exhibitors, including heavy equipment, bulk storage tanks, trailers, commercial fertilizer and agricultural chemical manufacturers, seed companies, product distribution companies, and service and support organizations such as soil testing laboratories and associated state agencies.
According to the show website, the conference also provides three days of Certified Crop Advisor (CCA) training seminars on wide-ranging topics resulting from research and emerging information culminating from the cooperative interplay between university professors, industry leaders, and agency personnel.
BBI’s partner for the WABA event is Ag Systems, a dealer with locations in Wisconsin and Minnesota. Ag Systems offers a comprehensive set of farming equipment options, both new and used, as well as technology solutions for precision agriculture applications.
For the 2013 event, BBI’s Denny McCauley, territory sales manager for the Midwest, and Guy Mathias of Ag Systems will be showing MagnaSpread, BBI’s flagship line of hydraulic granular fertilizer and lime spreaders optimized for precision agriculture. MagnaSpread is available in single-axle, tandem-axle, pull-type, and truck-mount options. All MagnaSpread models feature BBI’s exclusive Binary Manifold, a variable rate-ready hydraulic manifold that makes connecting to precision agriculture controls a snap.
In addition to MagnaSpread, McCauley and Mathias will also show Liberty, BBI’s market leader for medium-capacity fertilizer and lime application needs. The tandem-axle, mechanical-drive Liberty utilizes BBI’s exclusive spreader system to deliver a wider, flatter, and more consistent spread pattern than other equipment in its class.
"We always appreciate the opportunity to meet with farmers with a great partner like Ag Systems,” stated McCauley. “We have a lot of respect for the Wisconsin farming community and the good work that Ag Systems is doing to keep pace with their needs for precision agriculture technology offerings and the equipment to match its demands. At BBI, we build equipment specifically to meet the demands of modern agriculture, and we look forward to participating in what will be a great trade show and conference in Madison.”
