Alta Applicator Finalist For National Award
November 24, 2015
Tom Kestel… a custom agriculture operator with Ag Partners in Alta… has been named one of four finalists to be honored as 2015 Operator of the Year. Conducted by AGCO Application Equipment.
The annual program recognizes the top professional applicators throughout North America based on their skills, dedication, customer service, and community involvement. Brian Nepple of Ag Partners says Kestel effectively gives up his spring, summers and falls to work in the field. With 14 years of experience, Kestel applies 35-thousand acres per year and has established a reputation as the “go-to guy” for custom application.
Kestel and the other three finalists will be guests of AGCO at the 2015 Agricultural Retailers Association Conference & Expo next week in Palm Desert, California, where one of them will be announced as the 10th Annual Operator of the Year. The winner will receive the grand prize of a new Harley-Davidson motorcycle, and the retailer who nominated the winner will receive 100 hours free use of their choice of an AGCO self-propelled high-floatation applicator or self-propelled sprayer.
