Spring Into Action
If you can count on anything in life, it’s that with every season change, there’s new work to be done. We’re proud to support our customers by providing the things you need to take care of business. Whether you’re working on the farm, at the ranch or around your property, 21st Century Equipment is here to help you spring into action.
A Note from Owen
To our valued friends & customers...
For most of us, it’s been a long winter. Growing up in Minnesota, some days have felt like I’m back home, but the days are getting longer and the snow is slowly melting. Hopefully, the mountain snowpack continues to build so we have adequate irrigation water supplies this summer.
In my last flyer letter in December 2022, I noted, “Older approaches to increase production are no longer viable. In the past, to increase production, we could rely on planting more acres, increasing horsepower, building larger implements or applying more nutrients. In short, we could always do more with more. However, today in agriculture, we have to do more with less.”
In other words, what got us here today won’t take us where we need to go tomorrow. I’d like to expand those thoughts a little further.
In agriculture, we have a tradition of learning from each other, passing along knowledge gained over the years. We know the value of doing things a little bit better every growing season, and over time, those incremental improvements have turned into something big. But while we continue to build on those improvements, it’s not enough to propel agriculture into the future. We need more ideas, more energy and more passion about feeding a hungry world. After all, that’s our job - feeding and fueling the world.
On November 15, 2022, the world’s population clock struck 8 billion people. That’s 8 billion people relying on us to feed and nourish them. More importantly, the United Nations estimates that today’s food production will need to double by 2050 in order to feed an incredible world population of 9.8 billion people. Boosting productivity on our farms and ranches is essential, and we will have to do it with less land, less water, less inputs and more regulation.
Part of how we’re going to be able to produce more with less lies in the utilization of Precision Ag technology - not only utilizing technologies that are available today, but adopting exciting new technologies that are coming not that far down the road. I hope many of you were able to watch John Deere’s keynote address at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas this past January. If you missed it, I encourage you to watch this presentation for great insight into Deere’s vision of how we can produce more with less. You can find this presentation at www.Deere.com/CES. I really hope you take the time to watch this video.
Finally, as I have said in previous letters, the key to doing more with less is data, and data is only useful if it can be managed and analyzed. John Deere’s Operations Center is an online tool that can help you manage your data. You can share that data with others, collaborating to make the best possible decisions for your farming operation. The Operations Center and its associated mobile apps also allow you to see what’s happening across your farm in real time and direct work plans to remote planting or harvesting equipment from your desktop or tablet. An Operations Center account is free. If you need help setting one up or a little training to get the most out of your account, please contact your sales professional or someone in our Precision Ag technology group here at 21st Century Equipment.
In closing, I want to thank you for your business and wish you a great start to the 2023 growing season.
Owen Palm President/CEO
more bushels per acre
It’s possible with Revline Hopper Throttle Corn.
21st Century Equipment is proud to develop solutions and deliver success for our customers. We do this by offering things like Revline Hopper Throttle Corn, a planter box treatment and microbial system for building root mass and optimizing nutrient uptake. In fact, a 2022 study with one of our very own customers resulted in an increase of 7 bushels per acre when this product was incorporated vs. without. Ask our team how Revline Hopper Throttle Corn can contribute to higher yields for your operation.
Some restrictions apply. See dealer for details.

As another planting season approaches and you’re prepping your tractors and planters for the spring rush, don’t forget to fully utilize all the technology tools John Deere provides to make your farm as productive as it can be. John Deere offers the Operations Center to not only Deere customers, but to any farmer to manage their data free of charge. The web or mobile version of the Operations Center has four main areas to help keep data clean, organized and usable anytime, anywhere.
Setup Plan Monitor
The first area of the Operations Center you should get organized is the setup area. This includes your client, farm and field lists. This area should only reflect one name for each field you farm. If it doesn’t and you have multiple names from operators over the years, we recommend getting them merged or deleted to prevent any confusion by not having a consistent naming structure. It’s also important to clean up and get rid of old guidance lines and boundaries that are no longer relevant. These result in wasted time searching on the displays for the correct guidance lines.
The second area in the Operations Center is the plan area. This is where we can set up exact products, rates and guidance lines to be used ahead of time, so when the operator gets to the field, they can spend more time doing the task rather than inputting things into the display.
With a properly equipped vehicle, users can monitor real-time work progress and see exactly what’s getting done within the third area of the Operations Center. This allows you to make necessary adjustments as things are happening. You don’t need the latest piece of equipment to get this done either. With a Gen 4 display and an MTG, we can make any piece of equipment stream real-time data to help your operation utilize cutting-edge technology.
The fourth area found in the Operations Center allows users to analyze all the data coming off the machines, implements and documentation layers. In the Machine Analyzer portion, you can see many things to help determine your true cost of operation, like total engine hours and total gallons of fuel used per operation or season, just to name a few. In the Field Analyzer portion, we can compare many different data layers over the course of the season to measure what is and is not making positive impacts on your farm.
Whether you’ve been using the Operations Center and Wireless Data Transfer for years or you’ve never heard of it and want to know more, reach out to your local 21st Century Equipment location. From there, we’ll get you in touch with one of our Precision Ag consultants to help position you for an easy and successful planting season.

We’re going to discuss what is arguably one of the most useful pieces of equipment any moderate-to-large property owner can have at their disposal: a John Deere 5 Series tractor. This line ranges in size and strength, from the 5075E to the 5090M.
What makes John Deere 5 Series Utility Tractors so versatile?
The 5 Series family of tractors features machines that range in horsepower from 50hp-128hp. Such a range puts this series right in the sweet spot for most rural property owners. Multiple transmissions options are also available.
2. User-Friendly Features
This line is incredibly operator friendly. With Precision Ag capabilities (more on this to come), a comfortable operator station, a wide range of easy-to-use attachments and features that make use of this machine more comfortable overall, the 5 Series line is a user’s dream.
Did you know you can customize your tractor to your needs, including options for things like a premium cab and adjustable air ride seats, Bluetooth radio and more? Ask your local 21st Century Equipment representative for ideas on how you can make your 5 Series tractor just right for you. The inclusion of AutoTrac also makes these tractors even easier to operate than models of the past.
3. JDLink Connectivity
The John Deere 5 Series line is compatible with JDLink. JDLink connectivity allows for remote diagnostic operations to be performed. This feature also allows for routine maintenance notifications to be sent, troubleshooting to be performed and much more.
Many users find JDLink's ability to keep track of your equipment’s precise location to be incredibly helpful when multiple pieces of machinery are operating at once.
Whether you’re a rancher whose day includes things like baling hay and feeding cattle, a property owner completing road maintenance tasks or anything in between, a John Deere 5 Series tractor from 21st Century Equipment may be just the machine your operation is missing.
