In an action-packed week that also features the Southern Farm Show in Raleigh, North Carolina and the AgConnect Expo and Summit in Kansas City, Missouri, BBI will join forces with Mike Olson’s Spreader Specialties dealership for the Iowa Power Farming Show in Des Moines, Iowa. 

The Iowa Power Farming Show, held annually at the Iowa Events Center, will take place January 29-31.  The show currently rates as the third-largest indoor show in the country, with promoters expecting nearly 20,000 attendees at the seven-acre complex.  BBI and Spreader Specialties, an exclusive dealer of BBI spreaders based in Austin, Minnesota, will join over 750 exhibiting companies with over 1800 booths at the event.

This year’s Iowa Power Farming Show will feature a broad range of farming equipment and precision agriculture electronics, with over $50 million in equipment on display. In addition to the vendor exhibits featuring equipment and technology for precision farming applications, the show will also provide abundant educational opportunities for Midwestern farmers on topics ranging from profitability to yield improvement and business planning for family farms.

For the 2013 event, BBI’s Denny McCauley, territory sales manager for the Midwest, and Mike Olson of Spreader Specialties 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.

"Any time that we can get to a show to talk with farmers in the Midwest is very fruitful for BBI,” stated McCauley.  “It’s an opportunity for us to not only continue the growth of our business at BBI and Spreader Specialties, but also for us to remain in tune with the needs of the most sophisticated farming operations in the company.  Our company is dedicated to improving the economics of our customers through driving value in their application of fertilizer, lime, and organic materials, and there are few platforms for us to interact with our customer base that are as effective as the Iowa Power Farming Show.”
