REGINA — Canada’s Farm Progress Show failed to draw its usual rainstorms, until the hour after it ended, but it did bring in decent crowds.

Drill is 100’ in the field, 18’ on the road

REGINA — There are a few must-see machines each year at Canada’s Farm Progress Show, and Bourgault made that list this year with its new 100 foot 3420 Paralink Hoe Drill.

Many producers were aware that Bourgault was working on the 100 foot drill with pictures of its testing shared on Twitter and online discussion boards.

However, this was the first time the public could view the seeder up close and Bourgault staff could openly discuss it.
