Michael Carruth and John Crouch are heading to Memphis, Tennessee for the Mid-South Farm & Gin Show.
The National Farm Machinery Show is Feb 13 – 16 in Louisville, KY. This year John Crouch and Michael Carruth will be representing NCI at the show. They will be in the South Wing Booth 8250.
The Kentucky Exposition Center is completely filled with 860 exhibitors, making it the country’s largest indoor farm show. Nearly every major line of farming equipment will be on display allowing attendees to compare products side by side. The most innovative technology and new product launches are available to agribusiness professionals, as well as alternative energy information and solutions to the challenges facing today’s agribusiness industry.
Customer service can be interesting. Sometimes it’s a simple fix, sometimes it’s something that stumps all the experts, sometimes its a “WOW”. Today we had a customer provide serial # 2-73-2338 (Feb, 73 + #2338) to John Crouch asking a spread rate question. That dry spreader truck that is 46 years old! (John wasn’t even born until 1983! ) We all reacted with WOW! Amazing!!
We’re hoping the customer will send us a photo of the truck as it looks today. Do you have an old Newton Crouch spreader or sprayer? We would love to hear your story.

Christine from Thomsaston, GA picked up her new 200 gallon 3 point hitch sprayer with boomless nozzles today. She said she had done lots and lots of research because she wasn’t sure what she needed or even what was available. One of the things that bothered her was the way “you get what I have” for many products. She said when she called NCI and spoke with John Crouch the first thing he said was tell me about your operation, what you want to do and what problems you are having. Then John told her she could get only the features she wanted. She was thrilled she wouldn’t have to buy then alter her equipment. Christine admitted that she was paying more for the NCI sprayer than the others she had shopped, but said that the customer service and custom design were big factors in her purchase. She said that she was telling one of her neighbors about her new equipment and he told her, “you’re buying the best!”
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 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.
