WINNIPEG, MANITOBA June 8, 2015 – Westeel, newly acquired by Ag Growth International, has announced a promotion hereby participants test their ability to assemble a portion of a Westeel Wide-Corr® Grain Bin. The fastest participant that tightens eight bolts and nuts into a wall sheet will win one of three Milwaukee 2-Tool Combo Kits.

Competitions will take place at booth #8500 in Lot D, Westeel’s outdoor booth, at Canada’s Farm Progress show in Regina June 17th – 19th. There will be one prize winner every day. Westeel also has booth #70802 indoor in Hall #7. Show-goers will be able to sign up for Westeel’s electronic newsletter and receive T-shirts and other promotional items at either of Westeel’s booths.

The contest will take place at other tradeshows this summer including Ag In Motion (Saskatoon), Farmfest (Minnesota), Dakotafest (South Dakota), Farm Progress (Illinois), Husker Harvest (Nebraska), and Ohio Farm Science Review (Ohio).

The Torque It Up promotion includes an online component at TorqueItUp.westeel.com (which will be live on June 10) where the best three times of each day will be showcased as well as photographs and videos of the events. Participants and spectators can follow the contest and post their own personal experience using #TorqueItUp on social media.

"This is a unique experience for show-goers to test their skills as a Westeel bin builder and have some competitive fun," said Denis Tétrault, Product Manager at Westeel.
