agriculture Stinger Stacker, the most versatile bale wagon 20 years and still growing…


n 2012, Stinger celebrated its 20th year manufacturing bale wagons that handle large square and round bales. From their humble beginnings on the Matlack Brothers farming operation in Burrton, Kansas, brother’s Larry and Bill have turned their dream into reality. Today they now have over 500 machines in North America, Mexico, and New Zealand handling over 10 million large bales each season. “It’s come a long way from a shop built school bus that didn’t even have a cab to protect you from those 105 degree Kansas summer days.” Larry Matlack told us. “We started with an idea, support from our local bank, family, and commitments from other farmers who were interested in the product for their own operation.” Today, Stinger still builds two basic

models, one that will stack or roadside bales and one that only roadsides bales at the edge of the field. But their premier stacker that has been their best selling stacker is the model 6500.

Pictured: The very first Stinger in 1992 and current model Stinger Stacker 6500.

The Model 6500 carries 12 3x4 bales and stacks them up to 6 high. Stinger

has worked in partnership with the Crane Carrier Company of Tulsa, OK, since 1998 in building a chassis specifically for their bale wagon. The LE Hayloader chassis was designed specifically for Stinger with off road use in mind. “You simply could not buy a truck with these kinds of specs on the market today.” Justin Matlack, sales rep for Stinger told us. “We have bale stackers in operation today that have handled over a million bales and I am not quite sure if you could ever totally wear a machine out.” Larry Matlack also noted that their first bale wagon made on the school bus is still in operation today in Northern Kansas.

Pressurized Exhaust Kills Burrowing Rodents


he H & M Gopher Control PERC® system (Pressurized Exhaust Rodent Controller) uses carbon monoxide from pressurized engine exhaust to kill burrowing rodents such as gophers, ground squirrels, prairie dogs, moles & voles. According to the company, exhaust gas has long been one of the most lethal and least expensive methods to kill burrowing rodents. But until now there hasn’t been an economical, efficient delivery system.

sells for $5590 plus S&H. The PERC® system is simple to use and safe for the operator as well as wildlife since there is no poison bait or explosion involved. Crop stands are not damaged during treatment. No other control method is as effective, efficient and as inexpensive to operate as the PERC®. A PERC® system can treat moderately infested alfalfa fields at about 3.5 acres an hour with a single operator. Each probed location requires only about 2 to

3 minutes injection time. Units have been shipped to customers from Southern California to central Canada and as far east as Florida. Though most of the market has been with alfalfa growers, orchard and specialty crop growers have also purchased units. The PERC® system is the best solution anywhere burrowing rodents are a problem. For more information call (530) 667-5181 or visit the website www. e

PERC® Model 620

Company owners, Allen Hurlburt and Virginia Massey, said that the PERC® system involves a narrow steel wand that is used to probe the burrow and inject pressurized exhaust that fills the burrow in two minutes with lethal concentrations of carbon monoxide before the rodent has a chance to either escape or block the burrow. An internal combustion engine generates the carbon monoxide and drives a compressor pump that pressurizes the exhaust gas to 110 psi in a storage tank. An air hose and a hand held probe inject the gas directly into the burrow without any digging. Brand new to the PERC® lineup is the PERC® 620, a trailer-mounted unit with a 20 hp Kohler motor and six reels - each with a 50’ hose and hand probe. The 620 features a tandem axle with turf tires. It sells for $14995 plus S&H. The PERC® 412 is a trailer-mounted unit with a 14 hp Kohler motor and four reels each with a 50’ hose and the hand probe. The 412 features turf tires and is designed to be pulled behind an ATV. It sells for $8295 plus S&H. The PERC® 206 is a skid-mounted unit with a 7 hp engine, two reels with 50’ hoses and hand probes. It sells for $4995 plus S&H. The PERC® 206T is the skid unit mounted on its own special trailer. It

Stukenholtz Laboratory Inc. Celebrating 42 Years of Agricultural Testing


n 1970, there were no commercial soil and plant testing laboratories in Idaho. Farmers applied fertilizers based upon educated guesswork. Dr. Dale Stukenholtz and his wife Joyce saw an opportunity to build a business and started a soil and

plant testing laboratory and field consulting service based in Twin Falls, Idaho. Dr. Stukenholtz had an unusually diverse background as an educator at the University of Nebraska, an agronomist in the fertilizer industry, and a farmer, and he saw a need for more modern fertilizer recommendations to produce greater yields at less cost. His clients were the growers, so he could make unbiased recommendations that maximized economic return to the farmer. After extensive field research, he developed these improved fertilizer recommendations that quickly became popular with growers and form the basis for nearly all fertilizer applications in the intermountain west area. Stukenholtz Laboratory clients include growers from all neighboring states and several foreign countries including Australia, Canada, Egypt, Russia, Mexico and New Zealand. Stukenholtz Laboratory provides 1 to 2 day service, including picking up and delivery time, across Southern Idaho from St. Anthony and Grace to Parma and Homedale. Results can be delivered, mailed, faxed, or pulled from the Laboratory’s webpage: www. To improve their service, Joyce and Dale Stukenholtz expanded the laboratory 15 years ago, installed the latest in computerized instrumentation and quality control, and made it the most modern and well

equipped agricultural laboratory in their market area. Critical to the success of Idaho’s most efficient laboratory and largest field consulting firm has been its personnel. Dr. Stukenholtz has had a PhD in Soil Fertility and Plant Nutrition since 1964 and his son and Laboratory Manager Paul has nearly completed his own. Consulting agronomists include J.P. Kruckeberg of American Falls, a 33 year veteran of field consulting and the most successful single agronomist in the state, and Bart Kunz. The Laboratory and office staff are equally good. Stukenholtz Laboratory continues with research and improvement. In conjunction with the Idaho Crop Production Association and University of Idaho CFEP research project, Stukenholtz Laboratory has helped to ensure that fertilizer recommendations in Idaho are the most cost efficient possible and produce the maximum economic yield while protecting the environment. Stukenholtz Laboratory personnel have conducted field research on over 40 different products and continue to be the experts at “cutting edge� agricultural technology. As we end our first 41 years of business and begin our next, we would like to thank our current and former employees for their dedicated work and our customers and clients for their years of support. e

Elston Manufacturing

From Sanders to Gopher Getters


n 1925, Rue R. Elston, the founder of the Elston Company and his wife, Clara, and son, Wendell, moved to Sioux Falls, SD from Spencer, Iowa. Rue found employment with the Manchester Biscuit Company. The next year his son Jack was born. In 1927 Rue, wife Clara, and two sons, Wendell and Jack moved to Minneapolis, MN where Rue found work as a bus driver for Twin City Motor Bus. One snowy night, Rue saw a young man get hit by a car while spreading sand with a shovel at a bus stop. The man lost his leg in the accident. After seeing this accident, Rue thought a unit could be manufactured to mount in front of the drive wheels of a bus and be electrically controlled by the driver. Such a unit could help eliminate this type of accident by spreading sand in front of the drive wheels of the bus. After extensive testing and engineering, the first units were installed on Greyhound buses. In 1938 a corporation was formed to manufacture the Elston Electric Sander. Today sanders are used on city buses such as those in Seattle, Washington and are mandatory on school buses in many Northern States. They are also used on fire trucks and a special design for railroad trains. In 1952 Rue, and his son Jack, engineered and designed the El-

ston Cargo Space heater, a unit that controls the inside temperature of semi-trailers that transport products that cannot be frozen. Through the years several models have been designed. These units are sold in the United States, Canada, and parts of Europe. In 1960, they were approached by the Fish and Wildlife Service to manufacture a machine to control pocket gophers. It was during this time that Rues other son, Wendell, became involved in the company. They designed a machine, The Elston Gopher Getter that forms a tunnel 7 to 12 inches underneath the ground. These runways are spaced twenty feet apart, which a pocket gopher intercepts. The machine is used by farmers in their fields, on golf courses and by many airports west of Chicago to eliminate lights going out on the runways caused by gophers eating the insulation off of the electrical wires. Since 1960 they have designed a hand held manual Gopher Getter Jr. for individuals to use in their yards and gardens. They also process bait used in these machines. This was the first Gopher Getter machine made and sold in the United States. In 1986 their business in Minneapolis plant had increased to where it became necessary to either enlarge the building or build another plant elsewhere. After looking over all the red tape and state regulations of Minnesota and Wisconsin they found it to be to their advantage to build in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. In 1986 they built a building in Sioux Falls, and manufactured and assembled Elston Sanders, Gopher Getters and Gopher Bait. In 1989 they constructed an addition to Sioux Falls to the Sioux Falls building and moved their cargo heater line to Sioux Falls. In 1997 the reins of the company were passed to the new management who brought with them expertise in the trucking industry. Today they employ approximately 16 to 25 employees in Sioux Falls. The corporate office is located in South St. Paul, MN. They are actively working on Research and Development on all three of their product lines: Traction Sanders, Cargo Heaters and Gopher Getters. They eagerly anticipate new and improved products in all three areas. For more information, please visit their website at  e


Egbers on Super Edge “There just isn’t enough we can say about the Super Edge Auger Flighting” says Doug Egbers, owner of Egbers Flighting Company, Inc. The Super Edge is created in the rolling process. This is a cold rolling process so the steel is not heat treated. “This lets the steel retain its strength,” states Doug. Because of how the flighting is made, the outside edge is thicker than your common market flighting, or “plain flighting,” as they call it. Super Edge Auger Flighting has an outside edge that is approximately 50% thicker. It gives longer wear and longer life of the auger. And Egbers knows their augers. Their repair and fabrication division has years of experience in re-flighting and balancing auger sections. “It just makes good sense to replace the auger flighting instead of buying a new auger section.” Confirms Doug, “New auger sections can be pricey and the Super Edge Auger Flighting is priced to sell.” Along with their repairs Egbers offers a wide assortment of replacement parts and tubing. They have your basic inside tubing, pipe, rolled tube for grain cart unloading augers all the way up to 40 ft. lengths for transport augers. “We’ve always thought freight and shipping different replacement parts from different sources can create a problem for our customers, and we can ship pretty much all the replacement parts a customer needs from here,” Doug says. “That way all your parts come from one location instead of several.” A newer service for Egbers is their ability to balance combine rotors. “We’re always looking for new products and services

for our customers. These rotors can be balanced at a fraction of what a new one costs,” says Doug. All in all, Egbers supports a great team for sales and repairs.

Oregon Family Honored for Historic Herd The American Angus Association® recognizes Kessler Angus, Milton-Freewater, Ore.

The Historic Angus Herd Award is presented to Angus breeders or immediate families who have been in continuous production of registered Angus cattle for 50 years or more. Owner Randy Kessler began the herd in 1962, when his parents bought him his first registered Angus heifer for a 4-H project. The foundation female was purchased from Triple T Angus, also of Milton-Freewater, Ore. Even though he was only nine years old, Kessler knew he wanted to be part of the Angus breed. “I always wanted a black one, from the get-go,” Kessler says. By the time he graduated from high school, he owned 50 Angus cattle, with the help of loans co-signed by his parents. In 1964, Kessler received his first payment for a bred-and-owned sire, EiContiuned on page 15 12 • Western Farm, Ranch and Dairy

leenmere Playboy. Since then, the herd was promoted through fairs and Kessler excelled his sales to 70 bulls a year through private treaty. They began supplementing their private treaty sales in 1991 with top consignments in regional Angus sales. That same year, they sold Kessler’s Rainman 002 for $20,000 in the Inland Empire Angus Association Sale in Hermiston, Ore. Another consignment highlight was in 2006, when they sold an interest in Kessler’s Frontman R001, a son of Connealy Front Page 0228, for $21,000 at the Cowman’s Classic AllBreed Bull Sale in Spokane, Wash. Kessler Angus has built a reputation for quality performance, growing with each additional calf crop: “You can go back in almost all of our cows five, six, seven generations before you find something that isn’t Kessler Angus,� Kessler says. It was Kessler’s late wife, Dawn, who persuaded him to convert to the first Kessler Angus production sale in 2007. Today, the farm sells 120 head annually, and Kessler personally delivers each one. He dedicates the development of the herd, and his family, to Dawn. “We made a great team,� Kessler says. “She could recall everyone’s name, and she made more than half of our sale calls; she could sell an Eskimo snow.� Today, the Kessler family continues their Angus legacy by managing the 300head herd. Children Cody, 13, Cheyenne, 17, and Tierra, 20, help with day-to-day operations on the ranch. e
