Machinery Pete to Keynote at Answer Plot Knowledge Event

Philadelphia, PA (August 18, 2014)-Author, television host and farm equipment authority, Greg Peterson-widely known as "Machinery Pete"-will be the keynote speaker at the Vision Ag LLC/ Winfield Answer Plot Knowledge event on Sept. 4 in Richland, Iowa.

Peterson will present data and commentary on trends in used farm equipment values. He will also report on what he sees as a highly dynamic and complex market due to lower row-crop commodity prices, uncertain status on the Section 179 tax limit, and large inventories of large late-model equipment on dealers' use lots.

"We're closely watching this shifting market," said Peterson, Founder and Principal. "There are some widening price disparities all across the country, and there will be both winners and losers in the used equipment space."

Peterson will also be available to autograph copies of the new 2014 Machinery Pete Classic Tractor Price Guide, which will be available for sale at the event. With over 400 pages and 52 equipment brands from the early 1900's to 1978, this guide is the most comprehensive compilation of auction data on classic equipment.

"I love every opportunity I can find to interact with farmers," added Peterson. "Whether on social media or face-to-face, it's great talking about trends in values and reminiscing on the classics. My audiences are passionate about their iron!"
