Folks I know AGCO has been hashed over quite a bit lately. I will admit to being 62 this year and dont get around like I did 10 years ago. I might have missed this, if I did someone please come back and let me know wwhere they are located. I went to the Iowa State fair last week and looked at the new farm machinery. I did not see 1 piece of new Agco equiptment. Case/IH, Ford/New Holland, and Deere were there. We have over 1 million people come through the gates. Iowa is usually in the top 5 producers of Corn, Beans, Cattle in the whole USA. I do not understand a company not showing off their stuff.

If you didn't see any Massey or CAT/Challengers they weren't there. We have a pretty high level farm show here that Deere does not come to. THe local dealers couldn't agree on who was going to do what so corporate said no body will go. The IH and AGCO guys love not having to look at green paint all week.

Major machinery companies left the MN State Fair years ago- 80 acre Machinery Hill was the big attraction for decades. Now they go to Farmfest in Redwood Falls in the summer, sort of like Big Iron in Fargo(?). Reason? mostly lookers from the cities at the fair. Serious buyers go to Farmfest.

The best new machinery show in Iowa is the Clay County Fair in Spencer Iowa.

We did not attend this years Iowa state fair. We went last year, and there was not one item of farm machinery on display other than the 4H and FFA restored tractor projects.

The last Agco AC to come off the assembly line. in 2010. These people with their "Your Agriculture company" on the wall behind them should all run and hide. They have finally buried an Agricultural Iconic Name into the history books. I really feel bad about this.I farmed with Persion Orange,with at one time 6 of them around the place.From a WC to a D21,and they all were good to me and mine.
