“We’re trying to see how simple life can be,” remarks farmer Reg Sonntag, one of three Saskatchewan brothers who reduced their cow-calf herd to shape an easier operation. Together, the brothers turned a small operation into 800 acres of grain crops and hay — now they’re planning to downsize as they look to the future.
Most farmers understand the importance of maintaining a healthy seedbed. But what is the seedbed floor? And how can you optimize the agronomic quality of yours to reach full yield potential?
Sometimes the secret to boosting performance and productivity lies in the tracks on the ground. As Case IH gears up for Model Year 2019, Magnum™ and Steiger® tractors are now available with high-speed tracks and wheel options to help you road faster and be more productive in the field.
With an increasing number of late season crop fertility and protection applications, Case IH is excited to bring two new Miller Nitro® series sprayers to market. The Miller Nitro 7370 and 7410 front boom models are ideal for custom applicators and growers who are looking for a productive high-clearance sprayer to meet their full-season application needs.
Perhaps no other time of year focuses our attention on farming efficiently like harvest season does. The next level of efficiency starts with a new level of automation — and it’s closer than you think. Case IH defines this advancement as the Supervised Autonomy category of automation.
No two fields are the same. That’s why Case IH is introducing enhancements to new 9- and 10-foot side-pull disc mower conditioners — because every field deserves a customized approach that maximizes haying windows.
When it comes to unlocking the potential of your seedbed, it’s hard to control what you can’t see. Fortunately, building on the existing seedbed sensing capabilities, AFS Soil Command™ agronomic control technology will now help you precisely coordinate control of your tillage equipment from the convenience of your tractor cab.
No matter the job, you need a tractor that’s adaptable enough to meet the needs of your operation. That’s why Case IH is adding to the Farmall® tractor legacy by introducing three new Farmall utility A models. Ranging from 55 to 75 horsepower1, they provide the kind of performance you’re used to without breaking the bank.
Field conditions and markets are unpredictable, so it’s important to have equipment that maximizes your efficiency and savings. To that end, Case IH is introducing the innovative Precision Disk™ 500 double shoot (DS) air drill, which allows you to seed and fertilize simultaneously in one pass.
You’ve worked hard all year to keep your farm running at peak productivity, and now you’re getting ready for the winter. Make sure your productivity extends into the way you winterize your machines, so the equipment you operate can keep up with winter temperatures and equipment that is stored for the winter can hit the dirt running when it rolls out of the shed next year.
