Winter is the time for planning and prep work, and the key to maximizing this year’s return is in your farm’s data. Use AFS Connect partnerships to share your AFS Connect information with all your trusted and approved partners, including those outside the AFS Connect family.
With this year’s harvest wrapping up and winter preparations underway, now is the time to plan for next year. AFS Connect gives you access to crucial data across your operation. As a farmer, you know which of your fields yield the best results – now learn why.
Your tractor, combine and sprayer all rely on batteries to keep them functional and efficient. Don’t be caught with a drained or dead battery next spring – properly store and monitor your batteries throughout the winter to hit the ground running when fields thaw.
As the seasons change and winter approaches, it’s time to store your harvest equipment for the cold months ahead. Set yourself up for next year’s success by servicing your combine and header and scheduling your post-harvest inspection.
You can’t make hay while the sun shines if your baler is out of commission. Make sure to properly inspect, repair and store your baler this fall so you’re ready for a productive hay season next year.
As winter sets in and equipment gets stored away after a productive harvest, machine inspections should be top of mind. While checking equipment for updates and repairs should be done routinely throughout the year, a proper post-season inspection from your local dealer can help you get a jump-start on the busy year ahead.
At the end of a long harvest season, your equipment — and batteries — have been put to the test. Now that winter is on its way, it pays to properly store your batteries so you can avoid potential failures and start the planting season at peak efficiency come spring.
Equipment maintenance runs deeper than changing fluids and filters or tightening chains and belts. As you work to get your tractors, planters and tillage tools field-ready, remember that a little touch-up work or a whole new paint job can help preserve the longevity and value of your equipment.
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.
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.
