No, not what you think it is … It’s called “Talking Shed” and it’s another of our favorite YouTube series, from our friend & shortline equipment dealer Adam Fennig of Ohio’s Fennig Equipment. All of Adam’s videos are great, but this one illustrates what hardworking dealers are doing to take their product knowledge to the video-sphere to gain growers’ confidence — and their purchases. This video on row cleaners got 1,200 views in its first 24 hours alone.
With equipment supply scarce, this “Tech Talk” from Intelligent Ag (a 2022 Precision Farming Dealer Summit title sponsor) shows 2 systems you can promote to your farm customers and get them fully “teched-up” with their existing air seeders and sprayers for better-than-new results.

Pattison Ag shared this video footage on LinkedIn of the progress being made on their new Humboldt, Sask., location. They now have an enclosed showroom and overhead doors are in place. “Our build is making great progress and moving quickly! We are very excited to see what the next few weeks bring and look forward to the future of Pattison Ag in the Humboldt area,” they say.
The advanced engineering of John Deere’s 8R autonomous tractor is awe-inspiring. But the chisel plow package requirement?

Former dealer Chad Colby (@TheChadColby) tweeted pictures from country star Jason Aldean’s (@Jason_Aldean) bar in Nashville, Tenn., of a bar built around a Deere tractor. Aldean took “Big Green Tractor” to the top of the charts in 2009. The track was co-written by Jim Collins and Davis Lee Murphy and produced by Aldean’s longtime collaborator, Michael Knox.
