DULUTH, Ga. (Jan. 29, 2013) —Massey Ferguson® (http://www.masseyferguson.com), a global brand of AGCO (NYSE:AGCO), invites farmers attending the upcoming National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, Ky., to stop by and see the newest equipment, including the new 4600 Series utility and 5600 Series mid-range tractors, meet the hosts of RFD-TV's "Small Town Big Deal", and get their hands on all the Massey Ferguson toys, collectibles and clothing they could ever want.

The Massey Ferguson display will feature a wide variety of equipment, including a full line of tractors, from sub-compact to high-horsepower as well as combines. Attendees will be able to see firsthand some of the best Hesston by Massey Ferguson® hay equipment, including the MF2150 large square baler, MF1745 round baler and WR 9760 self-propelled windrower.

Farmers will also have the opportunity to preview the versatile new 4600 Series heavy-duty utility tractors and 5600 Series mid-range tractors. Built on Massey Ferguson's reputation for reliability and innovation, these fuel-efficient, nimble tractors can help farmers get more work done in less time. Tough, durable suspensions, easy-to-operate power shuttle transmissions and responsive hydraulic systems make them ideal for loader work, hay production and general on-the-farm use.

"On the farm, time continues to be at a premium, so farmers need to get more work done in less time, as easily as possible," says David Bercik, product marketing manager at Massey Ferguson. "The 4600 and 5600 Series tractors help farmers do just that."

Meet "Small Town Big Deal" hosts
The Massey Ferguson booth also will be a featured location for show visitors to meet the hosts of "Small Town Big Deal". Sponsored by Massey Ferguson and Hesston by Massey Ferguson, "Small Town Big Deal," airs weekly on RFD-TV and profiles people and companies with rural roots who do great things to keep America strong.

The creator and host of this new hit show, Rodney Miller, and his new cohost, Jann Carl, will be at the Massey Ferguson display for meet-and-greet sessions from 10 a.m. to noon, Wednesday through Friday, Feb. 13–15.

"We are excited to align Massey Ferguson with the stories featured on ‘Small Town Big Deal,'" says Meghann McNally, brand manager at Massey Ferguson. "Our success is rooted in our employees', dealers' and customers' ongoing commitment to their land and local communities, so the program is a natural fit."
