Valley Presence at Mid-South Farm & Gin Show | by Kelly Cackin

Beale Street | Memphis, TN

Last weekend, several Valmont Irrigation employees, including Michelle Stolte (Global Marketing Manager, co-leader of the Circles for Rice project) and Sid Cameron (Territory Manager, member of the Circles for Rice team), gave Valley presence at the Mid-South Farm and Gin Show in Memphis, TN.  Michelle had a bear of time getting down to Memphis (not due to winter weather, mind you...), but the show was worth it!

Due to the show's location, we felt the show was a good opportunity to explore the reception of producing rice with a center pivot or linear.  We feel the project gaining momentum in this region of the country! 

Always at the forefront of technology, we have started to utilize Apple iPads at the trade shows we attend.  With the device, we can show visitors product demonstrations, their closest Valley Dealer, and rice under pivot information/photos/presentations, among many other things.

We would like to extend a warm thank you to all of the Valley Dealers who participated.  Thank you for your hard work and outstanding presence!

Do you know of a trade show or convention that would be an excellent opportunity for Valmont Irrigation to explore rice under center pivots and linears?  Let us know in the Comments box below!
