What a week it was at the National Farm Machinery Show! The largest indoor farm show in America celebrated its 50th anniversary this year and once again brought together tens of thousands of farmers, ranchers, agriculturalists and equipment manufacturers to talk about the best and latest in agriculture.
Kinze, which also celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, made the trip down to Louisville once again and we couldn’t have been more pleased by the outcome. The show’s location provides a unique opportunity for us to meet with many of our loyal customers and dealer partners, particularly those located outside the Midwest.
Overall, we were blown away by the size of the crowds and the amount of booth traffic we received this year! The 4900 Multi-Hybrid planter was the star of the Kinze booth. We fielded many of questions about how the system works, and the Beck’s field studies showing average yield increases certainly got folks’ attention.
Other topics of interest included our partnership with Raven for 4900 monitors, our autonomous grain cart system, the exclusive Hydraulic Weight Transfer system, and the EdgeVac to 4000 series meter conversion kits Kinze recently released. And of course, Kinze toys and 50th Anniversary merchandise were hot sellers at the Kinze store!
Away from the Kinze booth our District Managers presented to the Agricultural Equipment Technology Conference about the new Multi-Hybrid Planter, took part in a high speed planting customer forum during the show and received on behalf of Kinze a Finovation award for the 4900 Multi-Hybrid Planter at the Farm Industry News banquet.
To wrap it all up, the Kinze team had a wonderful time once again at the 2015 National Farm Machinery Show. Thanks again to all those who stopped by the booth to visit with us and learn about the latest happenings at Kinze. To be sure, it’s you who we really come to see!
