With so many variables in farming and today’s tighter margins, it’s important to focus on what you can control. In other words, it’s time to ramp up your risk management. And there’s no better time to start than today.
“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.
Wet fields are likely hindering your harvest right now, so locating and breaking up hard pan during postharvest tillage will be important to help improve moisture management heading into next year and beyond.
How you store your hay equipment is as important as how you store your hay. Be it the hay or the equipment that helped make it, proper storage protects its value and helps it last longer. Winterize your equipment now, and it will be ready to make hay next spring. (more…)
Breaking through hard pan compaction can be a tough, time-consuming process. Thankfully, Case IH Tiger Points are rugged enough to get the job done while also facilitating crop health. The result? An optimized seedbed performance in spring.
Tackle residue and maximize work time in the field to enhance seedbed productivity by equipping your tillage tool with the right Earth Metal® disks.
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.
Fall tillage can help lay the foundation for next season’s production. But one tillage plan with a single implement might not be best for every field. A more prescriptive approach can help ensure better returns on your investment. (more…)
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.
