Spreader Specialties Heading to Iowa Power Farming Show
Held annually at the Iowa Events Center in Des Moines, the Iowa Power Farming Show is the third-largest indoor farm show in the country. This year’s show will take place January 28-30.
Annual attendance typically reaches over 20,000, as more than 750 companies from 29 U. S. states and four Canadian provinces showcase a variety of power equipment for farming and construction uses, including tractors, sprayers, combines, planters, spreaders, turf equipment, and much more. In addition to thousands of power equipment offerings, the show will also feature a host of providers from the world of farming software, including developers of precision ag electronics, management software, and ag-related accessories.
At this year’s show, the team from Spreader Specialties will join Denny McCauley of BBI Spreaders. Spreader Specialties is an exclusive dealer of BBI Spreaders, a company focused on products that improve the bottom line performance of all sizes of farming operations through higher yields and increased efficiency from precision dry application of fertilizer, lime, and organic materials.
The team is particularly excited about the 2014 Iowa Power Farming Show, as it’s the first Spreader Specialties trade show featuring BBI’s awesome new Producer Series, aimed at large-acreage farming operations prevalent in the Midwest. Spreader Specialties will have one of the key products from the series, MagnaSpread 2, on display at the Iowa Power Farming Show.
MagnaSpread 2, built on BBI’s heritage MagnaSpread platform, is two-bin hydraulic spreader built for precision, power, and efficiency. Built specifically to meet the needs of large farms, MagnaSpread 2 delivers precision application of fertilizer and lime. As with other hydraulic models from BBI, MagnaSpread 2 arrives with BBI’s proprietary Binary Manifold for making ISOBUS connections to precision ag electronics, as well as the all-new precision ag suite from BBI Electronics, the Task Command System.
“MagnaSpread 2, along with the rest of the Producer Series, is an important advancement for farmers in the Northern Plains region,” said Spreader Specialties owner Mike Olson, a farm equipment veteran with nearly three decades of experience. “This spreader allows for so much flexibility and customization, facilitating a great mix in the fall and nitrogen in the spring. We already have a few of these in the field—they were released at last year’s Farm Progress Show in Illinois, and our customers are raving about the performance of MagnaSpread 2, MagnaSpread 3 (the three-hopper model), and MagnaSpread Ultra.”
To commemorate the release of the BBI Producer Series at this year’s Iowa Power Farming Show, Olson is upping the ante for farmers who make a show purchase. He’s offering a free Super Duty Shur-Lok tarp from Shurco, the leader in elite tarps for farm equipment, with the purchase of any Producer Series spreader (MagnaSpread Ultra, MagnaSpread 2, MagnaSpread 3) at the show.
