Farm-show season is a great way to get a firsthand look at new products and gather valuable information that can help you evaluate the purchases and practices you’re considering on your operation. As you make plans to attend your favorite shows and events this fall, be sure to pencil in a visit with Case IH.…

No matter how well you prepare your equipment, harvest breakdowns happen. But when you control the factors you can control, you’ll minimize downtime — and your stress level. So make sure your shop is well-stocked and your MyShed™ mobile app is up to date before the first signs of trouble.
Your workload before, during and after harvest rivals any other time of year. The right midsize tractor can help you get more done more efficiently. And that’s important, whether you’re harvesting this year’s crop or readying fields for next year’s.
If putting up corn silage signals the start of your harvest season, then it’s time to start monitoring your fields and getting your harvesting equipment ready. Once the crop reaches the dent stage, the window for optimal silage production can close quickly.
Properly used, the field data you gather this harvest season can positively impact decisions for years to come. But only if it’s properly gathered. Preharvest preparation is critical to helping ensure your combine is ready to collect accurate data.
As we near the point in the haying season when you begin to plan your last cuttings of the season, it’s also a good time to consider evaluating hayfields for next year.
Certainly, there are more pleasant places to spend a summer day than inside a grain bin. But replacing a bearing on an auger during the heat of harvest isn’t much fun either. Spending some time on maintenance now will help keep the grain moving this fall.
Establishing a good stand of winter wheat this fall will set the tone for the crop you harvest next summer. In addition to a firm seedbed set up by moisture, you need to make sure your planting equipment doesn’t slow you down.
Depending on how you’re set for moisture, you likely have a pretty good idea about which fields could benefit from improved drainage. So now is a good time to plan how you’ll address water management once your crop comes off. Case IH Advanced Farming Systems (AFS) can help.
