The National Farm Machinery Show has always been scheduled for the second week in February, which means our sales team has not been home for Valentine's Day for many years. Fortunately they are used to this hardship and make huge efforts to have flowers, chocolates and cards delivered in their absence!
NFMS gives our sales team a chance to interact with the engineers and marketing team from our manufacturers. It allows our manufacturers to interact with farmers, ranchers and homeowners to take back valuable feedback about how their products perform in the real world environment. And, it allows farmers, ranchers, tractor geeks, conservationists, land owners, municipalities and dairymen the chance to see the latest technology and equipment from the agricultural and construction worlds.
We value this week greatly. Although it is a long week, with many hours on your feet, the relationships that develop and grow, the knowledge that passes from team to team, and the camaraderie that develops between supplier and distributor is priceless.
