Tips and Considerations for the Summer Wheat Harvest Season

July 15, 2019

Each year, the harvest season brings about the opportunity for producers to finally enjoy the fruits of their labor. According to the USDA, the summer wheat harvest takes place from mid-July to mid-September. As with any season within the world of agriculture, though, the timing for wheat harvest can differ from year to year due to a number of factors, especially weather conditions. 

When heading into the wheat harvest season, producers should consider the important role this crop plays, ranking third among field crops in the US in planted acreage and production, just behind corn and soybeans. Not only is wheat an important crop for humans but it can also be used as silage for animals – while underrated compared to corn, wheat is a great option for feeding cattle. 

Exploring the Role John Deere Plays in the Success of Discount Dirtworks

July 10, 2019

Building arenas where professional horses and riders compete and train is no easy task. Drew Discount, the owner of Discount Dirtworks, knows this firsthand. “We bred horses on our family farm, so I grew up riding,” said Discount. “But then I got into dirt bikes. I raced motocross from 1993 to 2006 and used farm tractors to build tracks on our property.”

Today, Discount leads his company, which specializes in building and maintaining the show grounds that professionals use across the country – but he knows his job would be a lot tougher without a little help from John Deere.

Experiencing the Versatility of the John Deere 332G Skid Steer at Johann Dairy

June 18, 2019

Milk production per cow has increased more than 50 percent over the past three decades in California, according to the California Department of Food and Agriculture, and dairy farms like Johann Dairy are helping lead the charge. The Fresno-based dairy farm focuses on quality, rather than quantity, according to owner and operator John Verwey.

“We get higher production out of better cows,” Verwey says.whe

And in order to keep the cows and their habitats in pristine shape, John Deere equipment leads the way. Johann Dairy utilizes three large Deere wheel loaders that run up to 16 hours per day, mainly moving feed. On top of that, the John Deere 332G Skid Steer takes care of tasks such as hauling manure, cleaning up around fence lines, sweeping, and installing fence posts.

Taking a Deep Dive Into the Capabilities of Round Balers

June 17, 2019

For producers across the country, haying plays an important role in keeping farms up and running all year round. As with any task, having the right equipment is critical to meeting yield and baling goals. While the industry has changed over several decades, balers have continued to help producers meet these targets each year. It may come as no surprise that John Deere changed the game when it introduced the 14T Baler in 1957; this piece of equipment, which was the industry’s first bale ejector, produced well-formed, twine-tied bales and made haying a one-person operation for the first time in history.
