We bought our system from Fennig Equipment to get a jump start on Cover Crops on our farm. The popularity has created a custom seeding business that will pay for the system.

With my High-Boy Air System from Fennig Equipment, I can now justify running two Hagie machines. One to spray and one to cover crop & fertilize. The custom work has added extra revenue to my bottom line.
We the Smith Family were the winners of the Feeding Farmers in the Field week four. I want to thank you on behalf of my family, for all the nice gifts you sent along with Dale and Ty. Having the Ohio Ag Net come out was a great experience, especially for my boys. They were proud to see their dad telling the farming community, about the daily process that goes into running a successful dairy/crop operation. It is a time that my family will talk about and remember in the future. Thank you for acknowledging the farmers of this state. Thanks Again, Kathleen Smith
Picked up the set today! Thanks for the help and pointing me in the direction of a FANTASTIC! group to work with. Lots of great knowledge there. I will keep going back. Going to get the Yetter spiked closing wheels next month or so for the planter. Now I need to figure out if I want to offset the row cleaners or not.
I have been using the Magnums for 3 years under ideal and less than ideal conditions to sidedress corn with very good results. The Magnums are mounted on an old 12 row 30 inch crop cultivator with a 7x7 bar pulling an anhydrous wagon. Operating speeds vary from 6 to 8 mph depending on crop height and field conditions. About 2/3 of my corn acres are COC with all of those being in standing corn stalks as I fall strip-till the corn and then come back and sidedress. Plugging with corn stalks is not an issue nor is throwing too much dirt or trash on the corn plants. Sealing has been very good with the Magnums as my rates vary from 80 to 200 lbs/ac of NH3. Overall I have been very happy with the performance of the Yetter Magnums.

While he never goes into the field too early – his soil is not that forgiving – John Overman likes to plant his 600 acres of beans and corn as soon as possible. “I’ll do anything to get crops out of the ground quicker.”
So, like many producers, John was looking for a tool to help him achieve early planting and combat its challenges. After watching some competitors closing wheel products, John chose Yetter 6200 Cast Spike Closing Wheels. “We’ve had a lot of Yetter fertilizer openers over the years, and I know they’re a reputable company.”
John’s main concern was sidewall compaction. “I wanted to make sure the sidewalls would cave in right. These wheels really seemed to take care of it. The trenches were closed well, and the spikes crumbled the soil, but I still got a good firming with the cast wheel above the spike.”
Even emergence is also a sign of a properly closed seed trench, and John saw that this year. “This year it was late when we could finally get into the field – the end of May and early June – so the soil was pretty warm. I saw really even emergence across many different soil types.”
John’s Cast Spike Closing Wheels are installed on a 23-row John Deere 1780 planter. He runs the spike wheel on one side of the seed trench and a rubber closing wheel on the other.
Yetter All Steer Cart with a 1600 gallon tank! Fennig Equipment received three carts on Thursday, Oct. 20, 2011. One quickly retailed to Schleucher Farms, Celina, Ohio.
I bought a Yetter 40 ft. Tool bar off of Fennig Equipment with Yetter Magnums and I love it. It's fun to put NH3 on again, you can run 7-8 MPH in no-till and it does a great job.
The Yetter Stalk Devastator exceeded our expectations for this unit immensely. We have a JD 1293 cornhead with conventional rolls and it left many of the stalks sticking up which led to increased tire damage and difficulties in no-tilling our soybeans. The Devastator rolled the stalks down tightly without dislodging them which will make for less tire damage and easier planting next spring hopefully. We had to make a few minor adjustments to our head carrier but the unit fits on our carrier quite nicely, and requires only a little extra time to prepare for transport.
