Yes, that title says 2016. Generally, Land Pride has our Annual Sales Meeting in late winter to early spring. Not so much this year.

Next week, Team Land Pride packs up and heads south for the Kubota Summer Sales meeting. The Team will be training Land Pride Territory Managers on new products and other sales and marketing initiatives. That's why Land Pride has the best team in the industry: We keep them up-to-date on all things Land Pride.

Can you believe it? "Fall" Shows kick off July 11, with Wisconsin Farm Technology Days in Algoma, WI. We just passed Independence Day and summer is barely, officially, 3 weeks old, but the first Fall Show starts July 11 and runs through the 13th. We'll be exhibiting in conjuction with Kubota at WFTD, showcasing Land Pride implements and Kubota attachments, may of them coupled to Kubota tractors and skid steers. It will be a great time and the weather is supposed to be around 80. That's kind of like fall, right?

This spring, Land Pride and Kubota dealers across the US are participating in Orange Days. The events focus on everything orange, from Land Pride All-Flex Mowers and Kubota Tractors to Kubota Skid Steers and Kubota by Land Pride attachments. Some dealers are offering demos and deals, as well as refreshments and equipment experts -- like Territory Managers from Land Pride!

Today marks the first day of Spring. Can you believe it? Most of the nation is already experiencing very spring-like temperatures. Yesterday in Salina, home of Land Pride's World Headquarters, we set a record high for March 19th at 90 degrees. Can you believe it?

Spring means it's time to put the snow shovel away -- if you ever had to get it out -- and break out that tiller, aerator, grading scraper, or rotary cutter.

Land Pride personnel continue to crisscross the United States training dealers. In fact, since January 7th, we've been to such exotic locations as Tulsa, OK, Bryan, TX, Shelbyville, TN, and Jackson, MS, just to name a few.

Show season is upon us. Every year at this time, Land Pride gets started with what we refer to as the spring shows, even though the calendar is quite clearly still in the middle of winter.

Yep... 2016 is rapidly drawing to a close and the Holiday season is upon us. I love Christmas. I love reminiscing about Christmases past.

On Nov. 10, I had the privilege of taking part in the 2016 Trade Talk event at the 2016 National Association of Farm Broadcasters convention in Kansas City, MO. The annual event draws hundreds of broadcasters and nearly 100 businesses and ag-related groups for a one-stop shop opportunity for ag media to interview industry professionals. I was in attendance with fellow Land Pride team member Mark Decker. We shared space with Kubota who were represented by Senior Product Manager for Ag Tractors Kent Brown and Senior Product Manager for Hay Tools David Palmer.

40 years is a long time. But that's how long Land Pride and Great Plains have been exhibiting at the Kansas State Fair. This year, Land Pride received the Exhibitor Longevity Award from the Fair. The award came complete with a Fair Ribbon!

One of the many benefits of Kubota's recent acquisition of Land Pride is that we were invited to make a presentation at their 2016 Summer Sales Meeting in Los Angeles.

So what did we talk about? Land Pride implements and the great packages you can build with Kubota Tractors, of course!

As you can see from the photo, we had a number of tractors and implements on display. We had a total of 6 tractor packages that we presented with the goal of improving the value and functionality of the Kubota Tractor.

Sunday is Mother’s Day.

According to a quick Google search, “Mother’s Day is a holiday honoring motherhood that is observed in different forms throughout the world.”

The article continues:  “The American incarnation of Mother’s Day was created by Anna Jarvis in 1908 and became an official U.S. holiday in 1914.”

It's the middle of April? How in the world did we get to April? My last blog post said Happy New Year. What happened to February? And March?

Happy 2016? Yep, another year has come and gone. Where does time go? Our VP of Sales announced his retirement this week and I'm sure he wondered the same thing...

So what do you think? Will winter be a bear? Will it be mild? How much precipitation will we see? That’s always good coffee shop banter. Right now, Salina, KS is in the 70s, not the typical weather for November.

I asked my Magic 8-Ball if it was going to snow, and it told me to “ask again later.” Since I don’t have time for that, I moved on to a trusted friend, my OFA.

It’s time to turn the microphone over to Bruce Woods! Bruce is our Territory Manager in Oklahoma and is involved with a local antique tractor club. In recent years, he and his club have found a unique way to showcase Land Pride and help an area student at the same time. Bruce…

Every now and then, I walk in to an e-mail inbox that has something wonderful in it. Today was one such day.

As I came in from the 3-day weekend, I was organizing my day in my head. I have several things that I need to accomplish this week and walking through my day helps me accomplish my goals. But, as is the case most days, something pops up that demands my attention. Today that "thing" is a good thing.

Last week I had the privelage of traveling to God's Country. When I say that, I frequently get, "Oh... you're coming to Colorado?" Or "When are you going to be in North Carolina?" And many other picturesque locations... However, I am actually referring to Oklahoma. Most of my family is from Oklahoma and a lot of them still live there. I have fond memories of the state and often refer to it affectionately as "God's Country."

It's March? How in the world did we get to March? What happened to February? I know February is only 28 days, but where did it go?

The 2015 installment of the National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, Kentucky kicks off 3 weeks from today. Land Pride started planning months ago. From displays, literature, equipment, and booth layout, Land Pride has discussed every aspect of our involvement; all designed to reach a crescendo on February 11 when they throw the doors to the Kentucky Exposition Center open.

This year marks the 10th year since I last celebrated Christmas at a place affectionately referred to as "The Farm." The Farm has been in my family since Oklahoma was opened for settlement. In its prime, the Farm was a family-sustaining operation with wheat, cattle, chickens, pigs, and a hay meadow nestled on a quarter section plus an inherited 40 acres in the north-central part of the state. To me, it was heaven. There was no place on earth like The Farm. My dad still owns the property. No one lives there, but the house, barn, grain bin, and the garage still stand.

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. Tomorrow!!! That means the next day is Black Friday -- something I do not take part in -- and a month from yesterday is Christmas. Where has 2014 gone?

In preparation for this blog, I re-read last year's Thanksgiving post. From last year I listed a number of things that I was thankful for, including:
