On Site Ethanol Processing - Use of crop waste

I would like to start a discussion regarding On-site ethanol processing.  I believe that 'decentralized' production of ethanol using waste from farm crops is a niche that has not been exploited.  The problem with the large ethanol plants trying to workout the cellulosic ethanol problem is the cost of the enzymes for pre-treatment of the waste products.  However, if a farmer can process the waste him/herself on his own farm using his waste or even his corn and then use the ethanol in his/her own… Continue

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.

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.
