During the winter months they spread lime on fields, as well as do planter work as they do custom precision planting for customer. It would be expected of the candidate during planting season to tend to the planters by loading/treating seed and bringing it to the fields, as well as liquid fertilizer during corn planting.

They cover 5,000+ acres of corn and soybeans, and are just beginning the use of 5 new pivots. This operation is extremely technology orientated, and strives to keep on the leading edge of the new technology being introduced every year.

Will work long hours during the peak seasons to get the job done (planting and harvest). On the side of the farm production they also set Precision Planters for their customers, which can keep them busy building planters during the winter months.
