Approximately 450 people attended Judson Implement’s open house on Nov. 30. Thank you for welcoming us to the UFC family of businesses.
Equipment for This Spring—and Beyond By Tyler Zollner, Vice President of Ag Services
On Oct. 1, 2016, Judson Implement officially became part of UFC’s Ag Services Division. We appreciate everyone who has stopped to check out this unique AGCO dealership over the winter months. Special thanks to those of you who gave us your end-of-the-year business. We really appreciate it!
e’ve had a couple of things going on already this year. It was good to see so many of you stop by UFC’s booth at the Hub Club’s 36th Annual Farm Show at the New Ulm Civic Center March 10-11. We had a great turnout. We’ll be holding our annual Lawn and Garden Days Spring Sale at our Lafayette Ag Service Center March 31 and April 1. Don’t miss the great deals you will find at this event on lawn and garden equipment including mowers and tillers. Check out the insert in your most recent UFC statement. Of course, if you have any rental needs for this upcoming spring season, contact us as soon as you can. Our inventory of tractors, rollers, field cultivators and seeding equipment will be rented on a first-come-first-served basis. Hopefully, you were able to attend one of our planter clinics this winter. For last-minute parts or planter services, please contact Jason Ries, our Precision Ag Sales Advisor, right away. For those who need assistance with precision planting equipment purchased in the past, we have five factory trained techs who will come to your field during the planting season. These technicians are located at our Lafayette and Judson facilities.
Interested in purchasing a planter? Let us know as soon as possible so we can maximize our program discounts and save you some money. Right after spring planting, the equipment companies begin their programs for 2018 equipment—so think about what you’ll need for next year. Likewise, if you’re thinking of upgrading, expanding, redesigning or repairing your grain handling system, let us know as soon as possible. There is still time to book that work for the coming construction season. Please be proactive if you need any work that must be done before fall. Call and get on our list. We have local grain equipment salesmen at Gaylord and Lafayette. Finally, over the 2017 growing season, look for results of our White Planter outfitted with the latest precision technology. Both United InsightTM and our precision ag team will be participating in trials using this planter. We’ll record the results of those plots throughout the crop year to demonstrate the value of that technology, and we will share this information with our customers. If you have any questions on precision planting technology, seek out your field sales agronomist or stop at our Judson or Lafayette locations. ●
