With spring time just around the corner, things are about to get busy in the world of farming. No one knows this better than Mark Turner of Mebane Tractor Feed & Seed in Mebane, NC. With a display lot full of McCormick tractors, and other farm implements, Mark is ready for the start of the growing season.
And to kick things off right, Mebane Tractor held their first RED POWER DAYS event of the year on March 5th, 2016. Designed as a cross between a customer appreciation day and a product showcase, RED POWER DAYS brought in a big crowd with big expectations. “I invited my customers, and others in the farming community, to come out and see the new tractors from McCormick and get behind the wheel and drive these machines. We also treated everyone to a great meal of BBQ and homemade banana budding,” says Mark. “We are a fairly new McCormick dealer in this area, and this event is a great opportunity to invite the surrounding famers into our dealership and show off the McCormick tractor line before the spring season.”
With a little support from the McCormick home and regional offices, Mebane Tractor put on one heck of a show. A huge crowd attended to see the new tractors from McCormick, which include over 35 models ranging from 24 to 225 horsepower. Multiple machines were on display in an open field next to the dealership where customers could take each tractor on a test drive. A large tent stood over tables and seating for the hearty lunch and refreshments. “This is a big deal for us,” says Mark. “It puts us in touch with our customers, and reminds them that Mebane Tractor is here for them with the right products and services to support their needs.”
