Our reps travel all cross the united states and Canada, the Midwest in particular and following are some thoughts about sights and scenes they have been seeing across the country recently.
We delivered a Tubeline Nitro manure spreader to Windsor, Colorado and saw lots of hay baling still happening in Kansas and a startling amount of grain laying on the ground (in Kansas) because there is no storage available. Wheat was on the ground and a corn crop will be coming soon as well with no more storage becoming available. This situation can be easily remedied with grain bagging. Richiger grain baggers store grain in an oxygen free environment and when you are ready to sell your grain you easily remove it with our EA910 grain bag unloader.
(Picture above, Kansas, wheat laying on the ground due to lack of storage space)
As we travel through Minnesota and Wisconsin, grain bagging and tillage tools are heating up. Lemken tillage equipment is a favorite of our organic farmers in Minnesota and Wisconsin and Richiger grain bagging is again going to help farmers in the upper Midwest safely store their grain to make a bigger profit.
Farmers in Arkansas are still baling hay with Mchale balers, and wrapping it with McHale balerwrappers either singly or with our Fusion baler/wrapper combinations that allows you to save time and fuel. Arkansas customers are also loving the Teagle Tomahawk bale processor which allows them to feed, bed and process hay or straw efficiently.
Here in Missouri we are looking at #Harvest16 and we have a great corn crop that we plan to bag on our farm with a Richiger bagging system. We have recently become owners of a drone, so we hope to follow up this fall with lots of awesome drone pics from our grain bagging harvest. Our plastar grain bags are of superior quality and mill thickness, so we feel confident about our grain and its oxygen free environment for storing our corn.
Further north in Canada, we are getting lots of satisfied customers who purchased the RTU1250 low profile swing away auger for bagging into Richiger grain baggers. These are suitable for hopper bottom or rear dump. Watch a video here of how it works. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MxcjKGuCxfs
We are still headed to several trade shows and demos this season, Farm Progress Show happens in Boone, Iowa this month Aug 30th- Sept 1st. We have a Lemken organic farm demo August 11th in Evansville, Wisconsin and a great Richiger grain bag set up at the Missouri State Fair in Sedalia, Missouri the end of this month into September- so keep checking our facebook and twitter pages for updates on where we will be! We have great dealers all over the country!
