Start up your summer with the new edition of AGCO’s FarmLife™ magazine

Look inside the Summer 2017 issue of FarmLife magazine! If you’re interested in receiving FarmLife magazine, see your AGCO equipment dealer in the United States and Canada.

Be sure your summer reading includes the Summer 2017 issues of FarmLife, the AGCO magazine for the U.S. and Canada. The magazine is published quarterly in two versions for each country—one for large operations and one for smaller farms, plus another version for French Canadian readers.

FarmLife covers topics that include agriculture and homesteading, featuring stories about innovative farmers and their families, the rural lifestyle, best practices, equipment updates and other advice readers can use in the field and at home.

Highlights from the Summer 2017 issue include:

Harvest of Riches

Terry and Ramona Button have worked for 40-plus years to bring indigenous, heritage crops and better health to Ramona’s native Gila River Indian Community south of Phoenix, Arizona. Many families put their acres together into what is now the 4,000-acre Ramona Farms. Read their amazing story with a video interview online.

Rural Infrastructure: A Creaky Skeleton

As the basic infrastructure in farm communities is aging, sometimes even crumbling, our articles ask: Is private funding the answer? Click on the headline to reach a page where you can choose to read either the U.S. or Canadian versions of the article (or both) about using private-public partnerships to shore up levees, roads, wastewater treatment, bridges, broadband and more.

Something Eggstra

Manitoba egg farmer Jacob Doerksen transitioned his flock of some 15,000 laying hens to new, larger housing more than 20 years before new Canadian laws take effect. He and his family also grow wheat, soybeans and canola, all with the help of a fleet of Massey Ferguson tractors, combines and a swather.

See these and all the Summer issue stories, farmstead project and garden columns, web-exclusive content, videos and more at myFarmLife.com.
