Sights and Sounds—the 2013 Southern Farm Show

The sales and marketing team at BBI participates in a lot of trade shows around the country each year.  This winter has been no exception, as we’ve traveled to multiple shows from the east coast to the heartland, and everything in between.

Not that we’re complaining—our people thrive in these environments.  Our front-line team gets a real thrill from sharing with the public our company’s vision for precision farming, as well as the great amount of thought and care that go into the design and manufacturing of each BBI spreader at our factory in Cornelia, Georgia.  And when we get to share our booth with an area dealer that brings a local flavor to the proceedings, well, that’s just icing on the cake.

We had just such an opportunity recently at Raleigh, North Carolina’s Southern Farm Show.   Held annually at the NC State Fairgrounds, the Southern Farm Show attracts thousands of attendees to see exhibits from over 300 vendors representing the wide world of agriculture, from farm equipment to inputs and agribusiness services.

Randy Copeland, territory sales manager for BBI Spreaders’ southeastern United States region, manned the booth during the bustling three-day event that ran from January 30-February 1.  Joining Randy in the BBI booth that featured Endurance and Grasshopper models was Ed Stevens, owner of Stevens Truck and Tractor, a BBI dealer from nearby Goldsboro, North Carolina.

BBI Spreader News was on-hand to capture the sights and sounds at the Southern Farm Show, as well as get some comments and opinions from Randy and Ed.
