BBI, S&H Farm Supply Feature Endurance at 2013 Ozark Fall Farmfest

The season is changing, and our company’s tour of the ag show circuit moves from a host of summer shows to one of the company’s favorite fall events, Ozark Fall FarmfestBBI Spreaders and one of its key dealer partners for the Four State region, S&H Farm Supply, will join over 750 exhibitors at the 2013 Farmfest.

Ozark Fall Farmfest is a joint production of the Ozark Empire Fairgrounds and Farm Talk, a regional, weekly agriculture newspaper covering the farms and ranches in Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Arkansas.

The Farmfest will run from Friday, October 4through Sunday, October 6 at the Ozark Empire Fairgrounds in Springfield, Missouri.  The largest agriculture show in the Midwest, the Ozark Fall Farmfest features a number of indoor and outdoor exhibits.  BBI’s line of spreaders will stand alongside wide range of products and services for optimizing heartland farms and ranches. 

2013 marks the 31st edition of the Ozark Fall Farmfest, and as in past years, the show will feature a heavy emphasis on raising cattle in the region.

Denny McCauley, BBI’s territory sales manager for the Midwest and western United States will join the family from S&H Farm Supply, BBI’s key dealer partner in the region based in Rogersville, Missouri.  S&H is a longtime BBI partner with an extensive array of products covering all aspects of farming and ranching life.  The company operates in four Missouri locations, including Rogersville, Joplin, Mountain Grove, and Lockwood.

Denny and the S&H team will feature two of BBI’s spreaders optimized for precision farming applications.  To meet the needs for manure spreading in this ranch-rich area of the country, McCauley will be showing a pull-type Endurance from BBI.  Endurance is the company’s best-in-class hydraulic solution for organic material applications.  Endurance models, available in both pull-type and truck-mount versions, come standard-equipped with BBI’s exclusive Binary Manifold system for plugging into precision agriculture technology.

For fertilizer and lime applications, McCauley will be showing Liberty, the company’s ground-wheel-drive, mechanical offering. Built on a tandem-axle platform, Liberty provides medium capacity to meet a variety of precision spreading needs.

“I always look forward to coming down for Farmfest,” stated McCauley. “This time of the season marks a real shift to some nice, family-oriented shows, and the Farmfest is one of the best of that group.  It’s particularly important to BBI, because we serve a lot of the cattle-producing operations in the area with our Endurance line.  We’re obviously looking forward to working with the great folks at S&H, since they’ve been so important to our company’s growth in this area through the years.”
