Tillage is always on the forefront at any farmer to farmer conversation, meetings, or farm shows.  At Veldale we provide conventional, minimum or no-till options.  We have our ideas on what works with different soil types.  We are always open to trying something new or tweaking systems that have been in place for a long time.  Please call and we can discuss your thoughts and make a plan for your farm.

Planting

 

Planting on time with perfect conditions are critical for a successful start to a season.  We have heavily invested in planting equipment to be able to serve you in a timely manner, using a 24 row John Deere corn planter and 16/32 row John Deere bean planter; both planters have centre fill, individual row shutoffs, swath control, and pneumatic down pressure.  A John Deere 1890 no-till air drill is used for alfalfa in the spring(with or without cover crops), cover crop in the summer and wheat in the fall.  Dry fertilizer is used for a greater return per dollar invested in corn and wheat plantings.

 

 

Forage and Silage Harvesting

 

We offer forage and silage harvesting services to make sure your crop gets to your livestock. Our goal is to be on-time, and be neat and packed before we leave.  We hope to see you back for four cuttings of haylage and corn silage.  Therefore, we do our best to make it an enjoyable experience for you, the customer, every time.
