22 February 2023 - AGCO Corporation (NYSE: AGCO), a global leader in the design, manufacture and distribution of agricultural machinery and precision ag technology, will display a wide array of precision ag equipment and technologies at the National Farm Machinery Show (NFMS) in Louisville, Kentucky, on February 15-18. Included in the exhibit will be many AE50 award-winning products from across the company’s brands, a special edition Gleaner® combined to celebrate the brand’s 100th anniversary, and fun games and photo opportunities for the entire family. AGCO will be co-exhibiting with its local AgRevolution™ dealership in booths 7823 and 7801 in Hall B.
Loaded with Award-Winners: Products from AGCO’s highly popular Fendt® and Massey Ferguson® brands will anchor the expansive exhibit. Both brands have fared strongly with AE50 awards, which are presented by the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) to recognize the industry’s most innovative engineering designs. Fendt winners of the prestigious competition at NFMS include the 1100 VMT and 700 Gen7 Vario® tractors, North America’s most powerful combine, the Fendt 10T with IDEALdrive™ joystick steering system, the terrain-hugging Momentum® planter, and last year’s Davidson Prize winner, the Fendt 900 Rogator® applicator. Massey Ferguson winners will also be on display, including the revolutionary 8S tractor (along with other members of MF’s newest tractor family, the 5S and 6S) and the Hesston® by Massey Ferguson WR Series self-propelled windrower.
Celebrating Gleaner’s 100 Years: The 2023 model year marks 100 years of Gleaner’s farmer-focused harvesting solutions, and NFMS will feature a special Centennial Edition combine and a 3300 Command corn head. The historical display will also include a Gleaner trivia game where attendees can compete to win unique Gleaner Centennial merchandise.
Industry-Leading Hay and Forage Solutions: Along with tractors that meet the needs of commercial growers and home enthusiasts alike, Massey Ferguson’s broad exhibit will also include products from its legendary Hesston by Massey Ferguson brand, including windrowers, balers, and mowers.
Pit Stop Challenge for Students: Precision ag technology requires increasingly well-trained and capable technicians, and it’s a hot career path for talented professionals. AGCO’s Pit Stop Challenge is a fun way for middle and high school students to test their skills as future ag technicians and win prizes like a Fendt multi-tool and a 32-piece tool set.
Photo Ops with Bucky Bull: Visitors of all ages will want to get their pictures taken on Bucky Bull for fun memories they can share beyond the show. The large model bull can fit multiple attendees at once, costumes are provided, and photos are free!
