Goulds Water Technology (GWT) donated a variable speed drive system to the Empire Farm Days Show in Seneca Falls, New York, Aug. 8 to 10. Welcoming over 60,000 attendees and attracting nearly 600 exhibitors, the Empire Farm Days Show is the largest outdoor agricultural trade show in the Northeast.
The state-of-the-art GWT variable speed drive system — designed with a 150L15 submersible pump, motor and Aquavar SPD variable speed single pump drive — pumped water from an on-site well to irrigate the show grounds and supply water for farm demonstrations held throughout the show.
“Assembled and tested in Auburn, New York, our variable speed drive system can be used for a variety of farming needs, including irrigating crops and supplying water for livestock,” said Jeff Rook, Territory Manager of New York, GWT. “We are thrilled to donate the variable speed drive system to meet water needs for one of the largest trade shows in the farming and agricultural market, held just a short distance from our New York sites.”
The 2017 show marks the 84th anniversary of the event that began in 1931 as the Potato Field Days; in 1967 the event was renamed Empire Farm Days, and in 1988 Rodman Lott and Son Farms in Seneca Falls became the permanent host of the show.
