Farm Progress Show

Good morning!

This week we’re at the Farm Progress Show in Boone, Iowa. The show runs through Thursday, so if you’re in the area, come out and see us!

Here are some photos that we’ve taken at the show. See you there!


Compost Mixers

Good morning!

We’ve recently sold a few compost mixers to municipalities in California, West Virginia and Pennsylvania.

Roto-Mix has sold compost mixers all throughout the United States, including Hawaii, and in Puerto Rico. Two of the units sold recently will go to the New L.A. County Compost Site.

“We’re trying to meet needs of the industry with our compost mixers,” said Garland Smith, Roto-Mix’s industrial equipment manager.

Meeting the industry’s needs also means that Roto-Mix has spent time upgrading and changing mixers as needed. Compost mixers are available in trailer, truck or stationary units.

“Business has been good,” Garland said. “One of the benefits of mixing is to uniformly distribute nutrients and microorganisms throughout the compost pile. The Roto-Mix design combines gentle tumbling with quick complete mixing to save time and improve your bottom line.”

Roto-Mix has a complete line of industrial mixers—one that will meet your needs today and tomorrow.

If you’re interesting in purchasing a compost mixer, contact Garland at Roto-Mix in Dodge City, Kan.: (620) 225-1142.

Daughter of Roto-Mix Employee Competes at National Level

McKayla Bacon is back from her trip to the National High School Finals Rodeo in Rock Springs, Wyoming.

The queen competition was tough, with 43 participants from the United States, Canada and Australia.

McKayla is the daughter of Sharon and Doyle Bacon. Sharon works at Roto-Mix in Dodge City. Roto-Mix was a proud sponsor of McKayla during her trip to the National High School Finals Rodeo.

Although she did not bring home the title of Miss National High School Rodeo Queen, she did place first in the state presentation contest.

For the state presentation, each queen contestant and their flag bearer had to wear state-themed clothes and decorate their horse.

McKayla dressed as Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz, and her flag bearer dressed as the scarecrow.

By placing first in the state presentation contest McKayla earned points and a pair of jeans.

This is McKayla’s first time competing at the national level. Earlier this summer she was named the 2012-13 Kansas High School Rodeo Association Queen. She also
competes in pole bending and barrel racing through KHSRA.
