It’s no secret that precision farming is an increasingly competitive market for dealerships. While service can distinguish one retailer from another, independence can also be a beneficial route to separate you (or your dealership) from the precision pack.
The fifth episode in our 2016 podcast series looked at the separation of the precision farming business at New Holland Rochester, a 7-location dealership group based in Rochester, Ind., from the perspective of store owner Jim Straeter.
But there are two sides to establishing a standalone precision company. In 2010, Lanty, “Spud” Armstrong took on the role of building the brand and revenue at Ag Technologies, the precision-specific spinoff of New Holland Rochester.
In today’s Precision Farming Dealer podcast, brought to you by Farmers Edge, Spud shares his journey — to include the successes and challenges — of launching a standalone precision business.
