AGCO names Glen Slabaugh 2012 Operator of the Year
Slabaugh, along with three other Operator of the Year finalists, attended the ARA conference as guests of AGCO Application Equipment. The other three are Paul “Rocky” Lang of CHS, Inc., in Royal City, Wash.; Carl Petersen of Crop Production Services in Pipestone, Minn.; and Paul Folden, of Garrison Farmers Union Elevator in Garrison, N.D.
“All four of these professionals are winners in the true sense of the word, as they represent the very best of their industry,” said Sharitz. “We congratulate all four for the valuable contributions they make to their retail organizations, their customers and their communities.”
Now in its seventh year, Operator of the Year is open to U.S. and Canadian custom applicators who are nominated by their agricultural retailers. A panel of judges evaluates each nominee on commitment to the profession, performance in the field and community involvement. All nominees receive a certificate from AGCO recognizing their nomination for this prestigious award. For more information, visit www.applylikeapro.com.
