Simplicity Redefines Landoll 2400 Series Weatherproofer I

MARYSVILLE, KS  — JANUARY 2013 — If there is one key feature on the redesigned 2400 Series Weatherproofer I tillage tools from Landoll Corporation, it is simplicity. Available in six- through 13-shank models for a total of five sizes, the WP I is easy to set and levels perfectly.

The entire machine — no matter the size — is set with the convenience of a single front-mounted depth control crank.

Nurturite

The concept of the Nurturite product line revolves around using emulsified silicone to treat forages. The goal with First Response is to allow the user greater tolerance to moisture; it’s used at the baler and can be applied as a replacement for prop acid, allowing users to bale hay at higher moistures without dealing with the typical issues they would have with mold and heating (see photos in ad below). The treated cost per ton is lower than prop acid on high moisture hay and the product is not corrosive and will not negatively affect the flavor or smell of the hay. Read more
