If winter hasn’t found its way to your farm yet, you likely know all too well that it’s only a matter of time. And if you haven’t had the chance to prepare for winter’s worst, here are some important considerations.
When faced with a remote location and long winters, Ken Vreeling and his sons find ways to make farming work with better efficiency. With Case IH by their side, the Vreelings are achieving productivity in every season with High-Efficiency Farming.
When you make a major upgrade to your equipment, you expect it to last and to help your machine perform better. Those principles drove Case IH engineers as they designed the industry’s toughest feeder chain.
A good time to look back on the growing season is while you give your combine a thorough postharvest inspection. Think about it this way: While you’re considering ways to improve next year’s crops, you’re taking steps to help ensure you do a better job harvesting those improvements.
Just like you evaluate hybrid selection, weed control, fertility and other agronomic factors across your farm, the end of the growing season is a great time to evaluate how other aspects of your operation performed, including your equipment. Case IH fleet management tools can help.
Getting a jump on the 2018 growing season starts with making sure your equipment is field-ready before you store it. And now, participating Case IH dealers can help make year-end maintenance even easier and more cost-effective during the Case IH Inspect & Protect Sales Event.*
Whether you’re storing hay or the equipment that helped put it up, getting long-term storage right helps protect its value and longevity.
Whether you’re driving the combine, towing a grain cart, deep tilling or simply bringing lunch to the field, you’re running on rubber. Ensuring you’re rolling on the right tires and tracks — and properly caring for them — can help the season go more smoothly and efficiently.
For years, performance-matched heavy-duty engine oils from Case IH have helped save you time and money through even the most demanding conditions. Now, the most widely used engine oil in the agricultural industry has been certified CK-4-compliant by the American Petroleum Institute (API).
Seeding windows are tight for winter wheat — about three weeks in most regions. The same goes for cover crops or forages for late-season grazing. It’s a good idea to prepare your seeding equipment now before fall work inches up your priority list.
