Day one of Spudnikâ€™s first-ever two-day ag summit in Blackfoot got underway at 10:00 Monday morning.
The event coincides with the Idaho Potato Conference and Ag Expo in Pocatello. Education sessions will be held both days where people can hear from notable guest speakers in the potato-growing industry. Those who attend will also be able to take a tour of Spudnikâ€™s production facility and see a variety of harvesting equipment on display.
Jamison Potter, a sales and marketing representative, tells EastIdahoNews.com Spudnik is an often overlooked business in eastern Idaho and this summit is a unique opportunity for people to see exactly what they have to offer.
â€œItâ€™s exciting especially for those who live in eastern Idaho. They see Spudnik equipment around and it gives people a lot of pride to know whatâ€™s being produced here. This should be exciting for people to see expansion and development that is happening in the potato business,â€ Potter says.
Spudnik manufactures harvesting equipment for farmers around the world and the typical annual revenue for Spudnik is hundreds of millions of dollars.
