All attendees of our 2017 Reseller Conference “Innovations in Agriculture” voted that the day was a great success, and we couldn’t agree more! We invited our key Speedtiller and Trash Management Resellers to visit Cowra for a day in early August, which was packed full of value and team spirit.

We kicked off the day in the picturesque setting of the JT Pridham Centre, with an award presentation for our Reseller and Salesman of the Year Awards. Congratulations to:

Cowra and Forbes Machinery Centre

Peter Nixon

Thank you to our Guest Speakers

Thank you to our guest speakers for your valuable time and contributions to this event. First up, we had Marcello from our dealer rewards team, who gave us an excellent rundown on the dealer exclusive K-Line Rewards Program.

Keep an eye on our blog – next we will be sharing some of the pearls of wisdom received from Peter Watt, Senior Regional Agronomist at Elders Cowra, who spoke to us about Nutrient Stratification and how this can be alleviated through strategic cultivation.

We then heard from David and Henry Nash of Cooyong Pastoral Company, who presented to us their experiences with developing deep ripping in their cropping operation. The Nash family saw the need for implementing a deep ripping system on their property, and came to K-Line for help in developing a deep tillage machine that was robust enough to suit their needs. After much research and development, the Nash’s purchased our MaxxRipper® prototype for this deep tillage application on their property, and “can’t speak highly enough of it”.

After a short break where the whole team got the chance to meet each other and “put a face to the name”, we regathered and split into groups for a networking experience. Here we drilled down into current relevant issues we are all facing in the machinery industry, and found great benefit in sharing thoughts, experiences, and a wealth of agricultural knowledge between teams.

Back to Base

After a sumptuous lunch catered by The Smoking Brothers, we headed back to the base to conduct a Factory Tour and New Product Preview. We introduced two new products to our dealers: the MaxxRipper® and the Delta Hay Pro. They also received a sneak preview of two more products that are in the pipeline, to be launched in 2018. But as the word ‘preview’ suggests – they aren’t available yet, so keep your eyes peeled for more details on these!

We received amazing feedback from the day, backed up by the fact that 100% of attendees said they would attend a day like this again!
