This week marks one of the busiest times in our company’s history, with an unprecedented level of outreach across multiple dealer markets.
Randy Copeland, Gerry Winters, and Denny McCauley, three of BBI’s territory sales managers supporting our dealer network, will participate in multiple events in Indiana, Wisconsin, Georgia, and Virginia. The week begins with the team fanning out to three separate events on the 14th.
Gerry Winters, territory sales manager for the Northeast and Canada, will join Agro Chem, BBI’s dealer with stores in Illinois, Ohio, and Indiana, for the Fort Wayne Farm Show in Gerry’s hometown of Fort Wayne, Indiana. The Fort Wayne show will take place from January 14-16 at Allen County’s War Memorial Coliseum. Agro Chem, headquartered in Wabash, Indiana, is the area’s premier dealer of spreaders, sprayers, and precision ag hardware and software.
At the same time, Denny McCauley, territory manager for the Midwest and western United States, will join Minnesota dealer Ag Systems for the Wisconsin Fertilizer Show. Based in Hutchinson, Minnesota, Ag Systems has served the Minnesota and Wisconsin markets since 1965, delivering multiple product lines including spreaders and sprayers. The Wisconsin Fertilizer Show occurs each year as part of the Wisconsin Crop Management Conference and Agri-industry Showcase. This year’s show will run on January 14 and 15 at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison.
Also on January 14 and 15, Randy Copeland, territory manager for the Southeast, will appear at the Georgia Plant Food Educational Society’s Winter Meeting. The Georgia Plant Food Educational Society brings together multiple stakeholders in the world of agriculture, including University of Georgia researchers, manufacturers, dealers, government agencies, and growers. A very important gathering in the Georgia ag market, the Society’s Winter Meeting is held in conjunction with the organization’s conference of Certified Crop Advisors.
Rounding out this very active week, Randy Copeland will travel to Virginia to join Liskey Truck Sales, a BBI dealer based in Harrisonburg, Virginia, for the Virginia Farm Show. Taking place January 16-18 at the Augusta Land Expo in Fishersville, the Virginia Farm Show is a favorite among both full-time and part-time farmers in the region. Now in its 18th year, the Virginia Farm Show also runs a skid steer contest awarding cash and prizes for all major lines of skid steers.
