Farm equipment editors come across a variety of articles, social media posts, podcasts and videos that offer a unique look at various aspects of our formidable agricultural machinery industry. Here’s our favorite content from the last week on the web:


The best of the web this week is brought to you by CLEANFIX.

Proven in the most demanding agricultural conditions, CLEANFIX reversing fans provide the most efficient diesel engine cooling and radiator cleaning available. Multi-patented reversible fan technology keeps the machine cool as needed and, when needed, provides the strongest dust and debris evacuation, without interrupting or slowing down operations.


Pete says it’s the hottest used combine market he’s ever seen

Machinery Pete details the hottest used combine market he has seen in his nearly 33 years of daily tracking used values ​​and auction prices across North America. Rising average auction prices on a myriad of used combine models are highlighted, along with an overview of recent very high auction prices.


Brannon: “Enjoy the trip”

In this week’s blog on Rural Lifestyle Dealer, Principal Dealer Tim Brannon will make you laugh with vivid memories while making an important point. “Managing stress, delegating responsibilities, finding a little humor, motivating staff and hoping for a better customer relationship…it’s to be appreciated,” he says.


Mike Wiles tells how tire size almost got him fired

In this video our friend Mike Wiles aka Tractor Mike shares a funny story about an inventory error. “Whenever I think of tire options, I remember when I worked for AGCO when the Massey Ferguson 383 tractor models were a hot commodity. I was constantly looking for a 383 that could be ordered for one of my dealers, one day distribution told me there was one in Charleston Harbor with no order against him. I snagged him!”


Rural Lifestyle Dealer Debut in print 15 years ago

15 years ago, around the same time, we put the finishing touches on the very first printed issue of Rural Lifestyle Dealer. In this issue, we featured our first article on What Rural People Want From You. The story highlighted the importance of treating your rural customers as if they were just as important as your agricultural customers (because they are).

“They made me feel like a second class citizen. They weren’t interested in me because I wasn’t going to buy a combine. It didn’t make sense either because they were in a good location to run a lot of areas here,” he says. “Look, I’m not stupid and I won’t give my money to anyone who treats me the way I am because I don’t use equipment to make a living or because I only have seven acres. I didn’t need the arrogance or the irritation.”

Where are they now? John Hannah

Something tells us that the folks at TriGreen Equipment in Alabama are much happier to face John Hannah now than those who lined up against him in his “early career” days. You’ll hear how this former NFL great enjoys heaven on earth — and his Deere equipment roster — on his Alabama cow-calf operation.


Video of the week: Farming as a Service: the Salin 247 autonomous no-till electric seeder

Farmtrac Dundee has expanded to market a full range of MFs from 34kW to 272kW (35hp to 365hp

Massey Ferguson turns 175 this year, a testament to the longevity of the brand, providing farmers around the world with the simple, reliable machines they need to sustainably feed the world. What better way to celebrate this auspicious anniversary than to introduce Farmtrac Dundee, who have been associated with MF for over 40 years. “We are proud to be part of the well-established brand for many years,” says the owner oscar wichman. He adds: “Our blood is red forever.”

The long history of the company begins on November 18, 1981 when Oscar converts a house into commercial premises. Today Farmtrac Dundee has grown to market a full range of MFs from 34kW to 272kW (35hp to 365hp) and carries spare parts worth R5 million through its warehouse to meet to the needs of its customers. In addition, a full workshop is available for routine maintenance and repair work.

Oscar recounts how he grew up on a farm with the long term dream of selling tractors and spare parts to the Dundee farming community. His vision was not just to make new equipment more readily available to farmers, but to provide them with an exemplary level of customer service that would dramatically increase their productivity and efficiency.

This initial company was called Farmtrac Spares, a name that summed up the company’s philosophy. Oscar started with two employees and mainly traded in spare parts for tractors. The business flourished to the point where the workshop was added to the same premises in 1984. The name itself was changed to Farmtrac Dundee to reflect its remarkable growth trajectory.

Richard Catlett joined in January 1989, starting as an accountant, then finding his true passion in the business side of the business. With Oscar, the couple form a formidable duo which is at the heart of Farmtrac Dundee. “Oscar knows all the part numbers by heart. That kind of expert knowledge only comes with 40 years of experience under your belt,” says Richard.

It is normal that the anniversary year of MF has taken a new step in its development. Oscar explains that a new management structure has been consolidated under the Farmtrac group. This includes Roland Bosse as CEO, Horn Breedt as Chief Financial Officer, Oscar himself as Group Operational Director, Richard as Sales Director, and Dieter Tschirpig as operational director at Vryheid.

Farmtrac Vryheid was established on April 1, 1996 by Oscar, Richard and Dieter, followed by another business in Paulpietersburg in 2009. This last branch is about to be expanded, which Oscar is rightly proud of because it shows that there is a lot of “red blood”. left in the business.

Reflecting on what has made Farmtrac Dundee such a resounding success in the important agricultural area it serves in northern KwaZulu-Natal, Oscar simply says, “We strive to listen to our customers and work with them to meet their needs through new technologies and innovative solutions. .”

This is where the true brilliance of the MF brand shines through, serving farmers for 175 years. Farmtrac has a fully trained technician in their workshop, who comments that the only problem with the brand is that the tractors rarely break down. “It’s a great product that doesn’t pose a lot of difficulties, which makes it easier for us in the field, plus it’s very user-friendly.” In addition, troubleshooting is child’s play.

Looking to the future, Oscar concludes that while the company continues to show phenomenal growth, the passion and dedication of everyone involved remains just as strong. “Being associated with the MF brand for so long is what has allowed us to stay true to our motto ‘Service Excellence’.”

This year, Massey Ferguson, a global brand of AGCO (NYSE:AGCO)is thrilled to announce a new look for its iconic Triple Triangle logo and new ‘Born to Farm’ brand identity to celebrate its 175e anniversary. MF has been providing farmers around the world with simple and reliable machines since its inception. Few global brands can claim such a lasting impact in the agricultural industry.

To support the farming community, Massey Ferguson has an extensive network of over 35 dealerships covering the whole of South Africa, providing parts, service, aftersales and new sales. Potential customers interested in the MF range can obtain full information at www.masseyferguson.co.za. After filling in the contact form, potential customers will receive the dealer’s video, brochure and contact details on their WhatsApp and email within 30 seconds.

To return for the first time in three years after the pandemic is to ensure that the 91st National Plowing Championships is a three-day event not to be missed.

Island also showcasing the 67th Plowing World, here are 10 of the must-sees from the 1,700 exhibits and events during the three-day event which is expected to draw 300,000 visitors to the Ratheniska, Co Laois site.

On the plowing front, 25 international teams from around the world will participate in the World Plowing Competition while the heart of the exhibition will be the mainstay of agricultural and plant machinery worth millions of euros.

Hayley Gruber, a 19-year-old American from Minnesota who is coached by her former world winner father Gene, is seen as a strong contender for the winner of this year’s world plowing contest.

With cutting-edge technology, technical experts on hand for free consultations in the Agri-tech pavilion and there will be a Machine of the Year competition.

There are 32 national plowing classes with top competitors from across the country competing against each other, including loyalty digging and horse plowing, which will total 311 events.

Also provided is the ultimate showcase of all breeding needs, breed societies, live shows and displays, health, genetics, feed, equipment and all necessary agricultural services. to the breeder.

An attempt is underway to enter the Guinness Book of Records by back-plowing. Patrick Kelly will attempt to break the world record for driving a tractor and trailer in reverse driving a 1962 Massey Ferguson tractor without power steering.

This extraordinary fundraising effort – to raise over €150,000 – by Patrick is in honor of his late mother Mai Kelly, who died of cancer. All proceeds will be used to support cancer care at St James’s Hospital.

Meanwhile, sustainability is a key focus for the 2022 championships with food waste treated by an anaerobic digester to create energy that is timely as electricity, gas and oil costs rise again.

There will be a huge promotion of recyclables, solar panel light towers, cardboard compactors and waste sorting operations. Visitors are warned that they will be subject to litter fines this year.

On the business side, Enterprise Ireland Innovation Arena will showcase ground-breaking technologies and cutting-edge ideas. Delegations of international buyers will be present to seek out potential development opportunities, while Innovation Trophies will reward the best projects.

Small businesses from across the country will also have the opportunity to make themselves known.

The Local Enterprise Offices (LEO) initiative will see 31 small businesses, one from each LEO, take a stand in the Local Enterprise Village at the Plowing Championships.

It’s more than likely that some type of shopping will be the order of the day, whether it’s spending a few hundred thousand dollars.

There will also be three daily country style fashion shows at their best with well-known model Celia Holman Lee as well as super prizes for the “Best Dressed Country Style” contests.

If that’s not enough, there’s the National Brown Bread Baking competition final with a €15,000 prize for the overall winner and the honor of having your bread sold for 12 months in all 150 Aldi stores nationwide.

Sticking with all things country and fast tracking the songs and dances of country music megastar Garth Brooks will be the daily “Reach out country music” radio show hosted by Trudi Lawlors featuring all the big stars of the country music between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. with live music and dancing at the bandstand.

As for the sport, Davy Fitzgerald, GAA hurling and Waterford coach and star of Ireland’s Fittest Families, will be the judge for the new Fittest Farmer competition.

The contest is billed as a fun way to spark a vital discussion about the physical and mental health of farmers nationwide, aiming to get all farmers thinking and talking about their physical and mental health.

Interested farmers wishing to take part in Ireland’s Fittest Farmer competition are encouraged to visit the Zurich stand each morning from 11am.

Anna May McHugh, who runs the championships alongside her daughter Anna Marie, commenting on this year’s national and world championships, said: “It’s great to be back after three long and difficult years. Coming back strong with the World Championships is no small feat.

“A lot of competitors, including those from New Zealand and Australia, are already there training to get used to the ground. They were eager to get here.

“There is so much enthusiasm for the plowing from competitors, exhibitors, Gardai, all public bodies involved, authorities and farm owners that we just hope everything goes well because we want to make sure there’s something new for everyone to enjoy.”

Petrus (Peter) Mittertreiner
March 10, 1931 – August 21, 2022
Petrus (Peter) Mittertreiner passed away quietly early Sunday morning August 21, 2022 at St. Paul’s Hospital in Vancouver, British Columbia.
A devoted son, brother, husband, father and grandfather, Peter will be remembered for his easy charm and affable nature, his ability to fix anything from cars to industrial dishwashers, his grace on the dance and her joy in helping people.
Peter was born in The Hague in the Netherlands, one of eight children of Paulina (Devilee) and Antonius Mittertreiner. Peter was predeceased by his wife Cisca (Janssen), his daughter Pauline, his brothers Johan and Frans and his sisters Engeline and Jose. He is survived by his daughter Bernice Mittertreiner Neal (Steve), his sons Tony Mittertreiner (Janice Eng) and Pierre Mittertreiner, his brothers Paul and Fons, his devoted sisters-in-law Doris, Truus, Riet and Mies, Riet, Adri, his beloved grandchildren Em, Kevin, Gwen, Rachael, Hilary and his beloved companion Eleanor.
Peter emigrated to Canada in 1953 and began his career in the parts department at Massey-Ferguson in Calgary, spending a stint at the Hansma farm in Granum to understand how farm machinery worked while working with it. Married in 1959 to Cisca, Peter greatly enjoyed his job as paymaster and office manager for a pipeline company, working for nearly a decade in the Drayton Valley oilfields in Cochrane in an office trailer with his loyal boxer, Bella, at his side. When the family moved to Calgary, Peter started working at the Mannix Company as a computer systems manager, setting up a small workshop in the basement of our house for DIY and building a great playground in the backyard. for children which included a garden, swing, horizontal bar and, more marvelously, a seesaw whose pivot was a large iron spring. In the fall of 1978, the family moved to Vancouver Island, British Columbia, where Peter developed a business selling supplies to restaurants from Ladysmith to Ucluelet, earning the respect and affection of the owners and the staff across the island going the extra mile to repair equipment in their kitchens. After Peter and Cisca separated, Peter continued to settle on Vancouver Island, helping maintain two public oceanfront parks in Yellow Point and forging a strong band of friends in Nanaimo. , who loved to dance as much as he did.
Peter always kept Cisca in his heart and mind, remaining devoted to her until his death. He was a happy and loving dad. He especially cared for, protected and loved his most vulnerable child, Pierre, and dedicated decades of his life to supporting Down Syndrome Societies in British Columbia and Alberta. Later he moved to Vancouver and joined The Home Depot as a sales associate, delighting customers by helping them solve all kinds of problems. His membership in the Knights of Columbus and his work with the Guardian Angel Parish gave his life meaning and spiritual sustenance, and he is remembered by fellow Knights as a true friend, role model Catholic, and an exceptional member of the Order. Peter was a fit and vigorous man, who enjoyed being outdoors, especially in the forest or by the sea. He hiked the Stanley Park Seawall daily until he was 88 years old. When a best friend of the island visited, he was dancing the night away at all the hot spots on Robson Street (they were always admitted on arrival, regardless of the lineup).
Peter spent his final years at Haro Park Centre, in the heart of Vancouver’s West End neighborhood that he loved so much. We are eternally grateful to the kind and gentle people there – so many people who took care of him body and soul, who danced and sang with him and who were always delighted to be charmed by Peter.
We love you, Peter. Rest in peace.
A memorial service will be held at 10:00 a.m., November 12 in Vancouver at Guardian Angel Parish, 1161 Broughton Street North, Vancouver, BC. The service will be streamed online for those unable to attend. Those wishing to make a donation in Peter’s memory should contact the John Howard Society of Canada: johnhoward.ca/about-us/organization/funding-sources/

Our most sincere sympathies to the family and friends of Peter Mittertreiner August 21st 2022..

Kverneland has emerged from the devastation of the past two years with vigor and enthusiasm to continue selling machines that have not always been matched by its competitors.

This year the company has held a series of events, both in Ireland and overseas, which have brought its products and developments to the fore, the latest of which was a joint field demonstration day organized in conjunction with Donohoe Agri Machinery of Enniscorthy. , County Wexford.

New Holland fills a void

Earlier this year, Donohoe Agri made headlines when it took over concessionaire New Holland for much of Counties Wexford and Carlow, a partnership the company is confident will prove extremely beneficial for both parties. according to its managing director, Tom O’Leary.

New Holland and Kverneland are a winning combination for Donohoes according to Tom O’Leary

Tractor sales have been strong this year, and like all dealerships, the supply issue has been more important than lack of orders.

Yet the industry as a whole appears to be adapting to the situation, with advanced stock orders now taking precedence over custom configuration of machines on the production line.

This does not mean, however, that customers must simply accept whatever the dealer has ordered from the factory.

A new approach to buying new

The key point to consider when ordering a new tractor is that the two essential components are its engine and its transmission.

Once this combination has been decided, it cannot be changed during the production process, which begins with the assembly schedule.

Buy a new tractor
Engine and transmission specification is the first decision when ordering a new tractor

There is, however, some wiggle room with many other items and options, and a dealer can modify them to meet customer requirements as the time for tractor assembly approaches.

New Holland is by no means alone in taking this approach, and as a working solution during this time of tight component supply, it has its merits.

Six cylinders save fuel

Tom notes that the model currently generating the most interest among farmers is the New Holland T6.180, a tractor that has the low-end performance of a six-cylinder engine, yet is compact enough to work in the yard. .

Contractors, on the whole, are looking for at least 250bhp and one of New Holland’s big advantages is that in those two power brackets they have a much wider range of transmissions than their rivals, he said. declared. Agriland.

New Hiolland t6.180 kverneland
The six-cylinder T7.180 proves to be a popular tractor for Donohoe Agri

Besides the demand for more and more horsepower, another change he has seen over the years is that farmers and contractors are becoming more savvy; they are taking a much closer look at their operations and learning about what is available and how it could move them forward.

That’s not to say they wholeheartedly embrace the full range of digital technologies that exist.

Tom’s customers are looking for anything that will make working at ground level faster and more efficient, an interest driven by labor shortages.

Donohoe Agri loyal to Kverneland

Donohoe Agri Machinery built its name and reputation with Massey Ferguson before taking on Deutz. The latest move towards former Massey rivals would not have been possible without the involvement of a neutral manufacturer between the two, to act as a buffer, Tom explained.

Being the parent company of Kverneland, a Kubota was also allowed to enter the field

During this time they have retained and developed the Kverneland franchise, a manufacturer which they hold as a valuable part of their range of agricultural machinery.

Kverneland is also keen to highlight the strong working relationship it has with Donohoes, and this particular demo day was a feature of this partnership.
