Here it is again, late November and we’re already thinking about and planning for 2012. Where did the year go? Harvest has pretty much wrapped up after another record year, and now is the time that the industry takes a break from the hustle and bustle to reinvest in their businesses. Grain elevators and feed mills are looking to renovate, expand and updating their equipment and facilities. Talk to any equipment supplier or service provider, and they will tell you their clients are already in the planning phases with their clients.
To aid our readers in this process, Feed & Grain presents its annual buyer’s guide edition, Showcase 2012, the industry’s largest and most comprehensive reference publication. We hope you find Showcase 2012 useful when you start to outline your equipment budgeting needs for the year to come.
In these pages you will find coverage of over 300 products — representing hundreds of suppliers in 11 major categories. In addition, we provide a product-specific listings and a full supplier directory. If you can’t find what you’re looking for in Showcase, go to www.feedandgrain.com/directory to search through our online Buyer’s Guide for more company and product information.
As we approach 2012, the staff at Feed & Grain wants to thank our subscribers for your continued support, comments and suggestions. Please keep them coming. And, to our clients who have supported Feed & Grain this past year, a very hearty thank you. We look forward to working with you in 2012.
