Good equipment and a top-notch dealer keep this rancher’s operation humming.

We recently introduced you to Dan Forsea in a blog post about his efforts to protect water on his Oregon ranch. His operation is in the thick of rugged terrain that includes as much as 20,000 acres of Bureau of Land Management land.

What brand of equipment does he rely on? To harvest hay for his 650-head of Angus-Hereford cows and complete a multitude of other chores, the cattleman depends on Massey Ferguson®.

Forsea has two Massey Ferguson 7480 tractors. He says they’re versatile machines, which he uses to put up and feed hay and drag his hay meadows. Last year, the rancher also bought a Massey Ferguson 1372 12-foot-wide swather disc mower. He puts up timothy, orchardgrass and clover hay, as well as some alfalfa, to winter his cow herd and to background his yearlings before he sells them.

This rancher depends on his Massey Ferguson equipment, in part because it’s as rugged as the land he works. Forsea expects a lot from his Massey Ferguson equipment and he appreciates his dealer, Robbins Equipment Company in Baker City, Ore., one of hundreds of AGCO dealerships in North America that keep their customers running and working with the most innovative and reliable farm equipment on the planet.

“As much as anything, I’ve had good luck with the dealer,” Forsea says. “I’ve dealt with Robbins since ‘82. I’ve stayed with them and they’ve stayed with me.”

He continues, “They stand behind what they sell, and they do what they need to do to keep me happy. They’ve been good to deal with. Whatever they sell, I buy. It has worked well for both of us.”
