Kayla’s Farm Life Lesson #1: Good Equipment

In case you have only recently joined us, let me introduce you to AGCO’s Blog Contest winner: Kayla Ferris. Her “farm life lessons” resonated with so many people and since her blog entry was so popular, we asked her to guest blog for us occasionally.  Kayla and her husband found the AGCO Blog while searching for information on a Sunflower soil finisher. Her next lesson is maybe something that a lot of you have experienced as well.

Farm Life Lesson 1: Good Equipment is worth the extra mile

It was how I found the AGCO blog in the first place.  My husband had been searching for a Sunflower soil finisher (a product of AGCO) for months.  Maybe even a couple of years.  It appeared finding a used one which someone was willing to sale was quite a challenge.
That is, until last week.  Farmer Husband finally found the Sunflower soil finisher for which he had been searching.  The only problem was it was 5 states away.  And when you live in Texas, 5 states in any direction is a long ways.  So the boys talked it over.  I can tell you two things.
#1. We are the proud owners of a Sunflower soil finisher.
#2. 1500 miles, 750 of them pulling a wide, heavy load, and only driving 40 mph, covering the back roads of 5 states and 500 gas stations (or something close to that!)… makes for a VERY long trip.
Apparently good equipment is worth the extra mile.

Who out there thinks they have traveled the furthest to pick up their beloved AGCO equipment?
