Meet Mike Olson and Spreader Specialties

Spreader Specialties and the markets it serves reflect owner Mike Olson's own diverse business background. In addition to a long career in agribusiness, Mike has also taken turns as a real estate developer and is the current owner of the nearby River Oaks Golf Course in Austin.  As a result, Mike and his team adeptly service not only the agriculture markets in the Northern Plains area of Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, and the Dakotas, but also the turf management sector for golf and athletic fields, as well as needs in the municipal and commercial real estate communities for infrastructure development.

In this video, Mike Olson gives viewers an inside look at Spreader Specialties. Mike discusses his exclusive commitment to BBI Spreaders, supporting customers through parts and service in tandem with BBI. In addition, Mike discusses other topics of interest, such as precision agriculture needs in the Northern Plains markets and the products he sees as real difference-makers in the BBI lineup, including Endurance (BBI’s line of spreaders for litter, compost, and shavings applications) and Triad (the industry’s first three-hopper, independent variable-spreader for precision dry material application).
