Liquid manure coulter injection system

Yetter has introduced a new liquid manure coulter injection system.

The Avenger uses a two-inch drop tube to put pressurized liquid into a narrow trench cut in the soil by the coulter.

There is little disturbance of the soil or crop residue.

The system is designed to eliminate plugging and dragging that occurs with big knives and shanks. The unit has nylon wiper wheels with steel wear plates positioned at an angle to the coulter.

It is spring cushioned and uses tapered roller bearings for long life. It fits five by seven inch or seven by seven inch toolbars and is available with optional disc or residue wheel sealers designed to virtually eliminate odor.

Front end loader attachment

Leon Manufacturing has introduced a new front end loader attachment.

The M650 and M650 HSL loaders have heavy duty box frames and are designed to provide good visibility for the operator.

An option on the M650 is a hydraulic self-leveling feature, designed to ensure the loader’s attachment is level when lifting materials.

The tractor horsepower rating is 45-90 h.p. and it has a lift capacity of 2,700 pounds. The bucket comes in five, six, seven and eight-foot widths and has a capacity of 16-25 heaped cubic feet.

Custom coloring is available.

Computer program for farm managers

A Manitoba farm manager has introduced a new computer program designed to help farm managers keep track of their field data.

Jonathan Wurtz, farm boss of Deerboine Colony, and Selma Maendel, computer programmer at Fairholme Colony, have developed the Field History Manager.

The program can be used to record field histories to help plan, compare and cost out crop and herbicide rotation, fertilizer use and other inputs.

The program stands alone and is not interfaced with accounting. Features include speedy data entry, search and sort features on elevator receipts and other reports.

It is available on Macintosh, Windows 3.1 or Windows 95 platforms.
