Two agriculture leaders join forces to offer enhanced farm equipment offerings
(January 12, 2015) -- Farm Press and Farms.com have signed a collaboration agreement to introduce the digital offerings of Farms.com/used-farm-equipment to all farm equipment dealers in the Farm Press sales territories in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and Northern BC.
“We welcome the opportunity to provide our dealer clientele with such a valuable opportunity,” says Jeff Sarich, General Manager of Farm Press Ltd. “Farm Equipment Dealers affiliated with Farm Press will now have the opportunity to see their used farm equipment inventory featured both in print and online. Due to space limitations, a dealer typically cannot advertise all of their inventory in print, this agreement with Farms.com will give our dealerships the ability to promote all of their used equipment inventory online.”
The Farms.com network of sites welcomes 25,000 visitors each day. For those who enjoy the convenience of searching for farm equipment online, http://www.farms.com/used-farm-equipment/ makes searching easy. Farmers can choose to search by category and/or location, to find the piece of used farm equipment that best meets their needs. On the Go? Farmers can also download the Farms.com Used Farm Equipment app from Google Play or iTunes. The app allows farmers to easily search for equipment from their smart phone.
“This agreement will allow both Farms.com and Farm Press to better meet the needs of our new and used farm equipment advertising clients. Advertisers will be able to more easily integrate their print and online advertising needs,” says Farms.com President and Chief Executive Officer Graham Dyer. “It will also make it easier for farmers who may already be searching for used farm equipment online to search a more complete inventory of the used farm equipment nearest to them.”
Several Saskatchewan dealerships, such as Hergott Farm Equipment Ltd., KMK Sales Ltd., South Country Equipment, and Nykolaishen Farm Equipment Ltd. have already posted their inventory online. Additional farm equipment dealers from Manitoba and Alberta will also be added in the coming weeks.
