The four finalists will join AGCO as honorary guests at the 2013 Agricultural Retailers Association (ARA) Conference and Expo Dec. 3 – 5, in Miami, Fla. During the conference, the winner of Operator of the Year will be awarded a Harley-Davidson motorcycle.
We strive to make the machines in the AGCO Application Equipment Division the finest in the industry — engineered from the ground up for precision, dependability and reliability. But no matter how good the equipment, there is something to be said for the makeup of the person behind the wheel.
Again, congratulations to all the nominees for all their hard work and dedication to the application profession and to the four finalists whom truly represent the best of the best.

Congratulations to Brett Bohachewski of Aylsham Agro in Aylsham, Saskatchewan, for being named Canada’s 2010 AGCO Operator of the Year. The announcement was made at last night’s Canadian Association of Agri-Retailers (CAAR) in Edmonton, Alberta, where Brett was on hand to take possession of a new Harley-Davidson motorcycle. With the amount of acres Brett has covered in a timely and precise manner, it’s hard to believe he’s only been a custom applicator for four years. In 2010, Brett covered more than 65,000 acres. His attention to detail and commitment to a job well done has quickly earned Brett serious field credibility among his peers and customers.
In addition to the long hours that Brett puts to the job, he also finds time to be an integral part of his community, acting as a full-time volunteer at the fire department and as a floor hockey coach for individuals with special needs. In fact, Brett is developing a system that will allow visually impaired individuals to play goalie with limited assistance.
In Canada, Operator of the Year was established by AGCO Canada Ltd to recognize the outstanding achievements and professionalism of the agriculture industry’s premier custom applicators. Agri-retailers from across the country submitted some of their best custom applicators.
Brett’s commitment on and off the field exemplifies what it means to be AGCO Application Equipment’s 2010 Operator of the Year. Thanks to everyone who participated. To see this year’s finalists, visit http://www.applylikeapro.ca
