"If you would have told me we were going to sell a 24-row planter even five years ago I wouldn't have been, I would have been quite surprised. But we had people talking about it. Talking is reality. I think it's great, it really is. It helps us out a lot. And it also helps the farmer out because if he wants something we can – It can takes a little more time but we can get it for him…
     "Mr. Farmer down the road that orders a 24-row planter, his neighbor maybe wants one, too. But he wants a 12-row or he wants a 24-row, but totally different equipment. So, we are operating now much more on a premise of trying to have it sold before we order it."
