Topcon Precision Agriculture (TPA) has awarded a System 350 autosteering and machine control system to Illinois farmer Mike Bumpus. Bumpus farms corn, soybeans, wheat, milo and sweet corn in West Union, IL, and registered for the system at an agricultural show.
The GNSS precision farming system was presented to Bumpus by Justin Jones, TPA regional sales manager and Derek Strunk, ag products technology manager for Topcon’s Illinois dealer Altorfer Agricultural Equipment.
Attendees of MAGIE, Farm Progress Show and Husker Harvest days in 2012, and AgConnect Expo, World Ag Expo, National Farm Machinery Show and Commodity Classic in 2013 were encouraged to enter the contest. Winner’s names were determined in March following Commodity Classic in Orlando, FL.
Jones said, “We believe Mike will enjoy the control the System 350 will give him. The system includes the industry-leading X30 console plus the AGI-3 GNSS receiver. It’s a powerful tool that will provide a huge benefit to his farming operation.”
Strunk said, “Altorfer Ag Technology Department is honored to be involved in this giveaway with Topcon. We look forward to working with Mike to make the most of the system.”
