We want to congratulate (and brag!) Erin & John Crouch on the birth of their daughter. Susie arrived Tuesday kicking and screaming. She is a tiny little thing weighing only 2 pounds 14 ounces but very feisty (just like her daddy). We’re pleased to say everyone is doing great!
John Crouch will speak to the Wilkes County Young Farmers on April 5 at the Young Farmers Building located at 313 North Alexander Avenue in Washington, GA. The meal will start at 7:30 and John will speak to the group on GPS guidance systems.
John from Maryland said his tandem axle fertilizer lime spreader was the best spreader he had ever owned. Well, we just LOVE to hear that! John had purchased the spreader in October 2017 from Messicks in Pennsylvania. He was getting ready for spring and just had a couple of quick questions. Our John Crouch was able to answer his questions and get him field ready. Maryland John added that he appreciated the friendly personal service offered by Newton Crouch Inc.
Michael Carruth will be traveling to southwest Mississippi (cattle country) March 12 – 16 to train equipment operators on the 1250 gallon liquid applicator truck. This sprayer has Raven controls. Michael will calibrate the sprayer and then go through basic operations like rate control and section control. There are 2 videos about this unit on our website under Learn More – Liquid Equipment Videos. One video discusses the various features of the 1250 gallon unit and the other video explains the control valves. This makes Michael’s training more efficient because the customer can always review this information online.
Don’t forget to visit John at the Mid-South Farm & Gin Show. NCI will be located in the large exhibit hall in booth 333-335 along aisle B showing a row crop spreader outfitted with Raven precision components. Unfortunately Michael won’t be at the show this year because of a broken foot!
The Mid-South Farm and Gin Show will be held at the Memphis Cook Convention Center from Tuesday, Feb 27 through Thursday, Mar 1 from 8:00 am – 5:00 pm. Newton Crouch Inc. will be there represented by Michael Carruth and John Crouch. The weather is chilly but you’ll get a warm reception at our booth. See our equipment, kick the tires and get answers from 2 knowledgeable guys. Tell them you saw this and get a free NCI hat!
