(WEST FARGO, N.D. – June 2017) Bobcat Company and Penton Business Media announces Keith Davis of Corydon, Iowa, as the winner of a Bobcat® S650 skid-steer loader. Davis was selected as the winner of the “2016–17 Bobcat-Penton Agriculture Win a Bobcat Loader” sweepstakes.
“After I found out I won the sweepstakes I was ecstatic,” says Keith Davis. “I had used Bobcat equipment prior to winning at my previous job, but I had been wanting to buy a Bobcat skid-steer loader for many years. It was a dream come true.”
Davis splits his days serving his local community as sheriff of Wayne County, Iowa, and farming. His farm consists of 1,600 acres of corn and soybeans; 120 acres of pasture; and taking care of 60 to 100 head of beef cattle. The first task Davis plans on completing with his new Bobcat skid-steer loader is to transfer a large stone rock from the edge of his properly close to his home as a lawn ornament. Eventually he will use the machine to help clean out barns, load manure and transfer hay bales.
The S650 skid-steer loader Davis won was equipped with factory-installed 2-Speed travel which will be beneficial for loading hay bales onto trailers on Davis’ farm. A radio inside the loader’s cab and an 80-inch low-profile bucket were also included in the prize package. To be even more productive year-round, Davis decided to add an enclosed cab with air conditioning and heat, and selectable joystick controls.
Davis entered the contest at the 2016 Farm Progress Show in Boone, Iowa, which took place August 30 through September 1.
