It’s time to look ahead and plan for a successful 2020 growing season. Taking a drive around the countryside, it’s hard to draw your eyes away from the healthy-looking wheat crop.


Farmers who used either AZteroid® FC 3.3 or Bifender® FC in 2019 are planning to re-use the products in 2020 and tell their friends and neighbors.

Bush Hog, first to market with a 10 year limited gearbox warranty

Since 1951, Bush Hog Inc. has built trust with our customers and “reliability” isn’t just a word, it is the foundation of our culture. Bush Hog products have earned the reputation for their durability and ruggedness in the most challenging work environments. This reputation continues today and to demonstrate this, Bush Hog is offering the only 10 Year Limited Gearbox Warranty in the rotary cutter industry. This exciting announcement came at the National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, Kentucky this past week.

We take a lot for granted

EIGHT DAYS IN November 2019 taught us lessons that I hope we carry with us for some time. CN Rail train crews went on the longest rail strike in a decade and the ramifications of that strike were felt nationally — throughout agriculture and into other sectors as well. We have had grain service disruptions before, and we have dealt with them, but this was something we didn’t know would happen, and we didn’t foresee the ramifications to grain farming and agriculture until it was happening.
