As the gates opened on the 46th annual AgQuip on Tuesday morning, nobody quite knew what to expect with the industry crippled by drought, but the crowds poured in over the three days and were similar to the 100,000 of last year. Considering how tough it is in the farming community with drought conditions throughout Australia, the show was not only well attended by visitors but also exhibitors.
White brothers Neil, Craig and Bruce were there, flying the flag for White Industries, showcasing our latest offering the GB30 Grain Buggy. While there were certainly no record sales from this year’s AgQuip, the country’s largest field days may have served an even greater purpose in its 46th year. The show enticed farmers to take a day off, get off their property, have a chat and a look, and hopefully freeing them of their burdens for a few hours. Exhibitors like us were not there for the sales, it was about showing the farmers that we are here, and we will be here for them when things turn around.
