Lee Kilpatrick, BBI’s director of sales and marketing, will attend the 2013 AgConnect Expo and Summit, a global gathering of innovative leaders in the farming community, next week in Kansas City, Missouri.

This year’s expo will take place January 29-February 1 at the Kansas City Convention Center, bringing together global farming leaders to define future trends in farming equipment and technology. Nearly 400 exhibitors will represent world’s leading companies in farming equipment and inputs, as well as technology firms focused on cutting-edge precision agriculture offerings.

Among the 2013 expo’s features are exhibit space concentrated on new products and emerging technologies, as well as AgConnect’s unique confluence of thought leaders in agriculture, its Masters and Mavericks gathering.  AgConnect defines the Masters and Mavericks group as “visionaries, CEOs, experts, and innovators” who come to the show to speak to emerging trends and industry challenges, in an effort to improve their operations and make their businesses stronger and more efficient through continuous improvement.

The show’s forward-thinking focus attracts attendees from all 50 U. S. states, nine Canadian provinces, and over 50 countries around the world.  AgConnect’s typical attendees are farmers and livestock ranch operators with 4,500-plus acres in production.

BBI’s Kilpatrick will showcase MagnaSpread, the hydraulic spreader that’s redefined the industry’s highest standards for precision application of granular fertilizer and lime. MagnaSpread, equipped with BBI’s proprietary Binary Manifold for connection with all precision agriculture technology suites, is the industry leader in efficiency, defined as “cost in use.”  Driving efficiency on farms around the world, MagnaSpread features BBI’s exclusive system for wider, flatter, more consistent spread patterns with swaths up to 60 feet for lime and 80 feet for fertilizer.

"While we really enjoy working with farmers at multiple trade shows across the country, it’s hard not to have a greater enthusiasm for working with the producers at AgConnect’s bi-annual expo,” stated Kilpatrick. “As we stand shoulder-to-shoulder with hundreds of global leaders in agriculture and speak with thousands of attendees who pride themselves on implementing the best equipment and technologies for improving their farming operations, it gives us great pride to renew our company’s mission of improving the economics of our customers with each new product we design, manufacture, and sell into the field at BBI.”
