A Haytool Clinic held at New Holland Centerville drew a good crowd of interested producers Thursday, Dec. 5 at the NH Centerville store. Presentations by Robert Hendricks, New Holland Haytool Specialist and Wayne Krom of New Holland Parts and Service support highlighted the event.
Producers learned about hay making techniques, preservatives and other tools available on New Holland equipment to make their efforts more productive and more profitable.
New Holland Centerville staff provided lunch and offered discounts on parts and service that was scheduled that day by attendees.
New Holland prides itself on leadership in haytools and this meeting was just one of the many things being done to strengthen that commitment. See any of our New Holland locations for sales, parts and service on New Holland products for best-in-class product and after-sales support.
Agritechnica is by far the largest and most prestigious indoor farm equipment show on the globe and is held every two years in Hannover, Germany. At each show, the Innovation Committee awards medals to the most important and innovative inventions in agricultural machinery that have been developed in the two years since the last show.
Over 400 entries from around the globe were submitted, and a total of 37 medals (four gold, 33 silver) were awarded. New Holland submitted the Cornrower system, patented and developed by Jim Straeter of New Holland Rochester, for an award. The committee thought the Cornrower was important enough to award a Silver Medal at the show for the Cornrower.

New Holland became the first major farm equipment manufacturer to introduce a new method of harvesting stover with the demonstration at the 2013 Ohio Farm Science Review. The Cornrower mounted on a NH 99C corn head and CR7090 combine windrowed stover that was immediately round baled by a New Holland round baler, making a perfectly formed, solid round bale of moist stover that was then wrapped in plastic. This harvest system now makes it possible for farmers to take advantage of the huge reservoir of feed that stover represents but up to now was unavailable due to lack of harvest equipment that preserved moisture and kept soil and rocks out of the stover. Additionally, the Cornrower significantly reduces machine trips across the field, labor and equipment wear and tear as the baler can follow the combine immediately. Contact any New Holland dealer for information on the Cornrower system of stover harvest.
Recently, we received a letter from the Parkview Samaritan Flight Team out of Fort Wayne, IN, showing their approval of their two recently purchased New Holland Boomer 20 tractors. They use them to pull the helicopters in and out of their hangars, and chose to go with the New Holland Boomer tractors due to their higher drift capacity over the competition. Feel free to check out their letter here:
Fred Rodkey II, manager of Rodkey New Holland in Rossville, IN, worked with the local FFA members to restore a 1930 CC Case Tractor for the 2013 Delo Tractor Restoration Competition. The tractor was original sold by his grandpa in the fall of 1929. This was also the first CC tractor in the state of Indiana. Check out this video to view their restoration process:

On Aug. 7 the NH Field Day held at the North Manchester Poet plant was a huge success. Over 300 guests attended to see a broad range of New Holland equipment, hear presentations on the importance of renewable fuels, take a plant tour and hear about legislative efforts to protect the Renewable Fuels Standard. New Holland is the only farm equipment company to support the efforts of Growth Energy and is the only Platinum Level sponsor. Other sponsors include a variety of seed, fertilizer and chemical suppliers and end-users ranging from Dupont and Monsanto to NASCAR.

The Indiana New Holland dealerships and support the efforts to advocate use of American-produced fuels such as ethanol. We’re appreciative of the Poet company for their efforts and in particular, the opportunity to work with the North Manchester Poet staff headed by manager Steve Pittman. Come in to our New Holland stores to learn about our Producer’s Club. New Holland is making a contribution to the Growth Energy effort for every New Holland sale to a member of the club. Farmers who buy DDG’s or sell corn to a plant that is a Growth Energy member get additional discounts and also trigger this monetary contribution. Now that supply of corn is pressuring prices it is apparent that those companies such as New Holland that worked to protect the biofuels market had the foresight to advocate farmer’s interests when many said that the drought justified pulling the biofuels products off the market. We’re proud to be a part of the New Holland efforts and appreciate the opportunity to partner with our customers.
