2018 Best New Products
1st Place: Copperhead Ag
The Copperhead Concave System utilizes notched bars for restricted flow. This allows more material in the concave area, increasing grain on grain threshing. As grain moves along the system, the concaves are progressively open, leading to increased unloading of grain as it’s threshed. With the Copperhead Concave System, you can thresh in any crop in any condition, have cleaner samples, decrease field time (resulting in less fuel cost), and stop rotor loss.
Farm Safety Feature
Farm Safety is of upmost importance to Manitoba Ag Days and would like to thank all of the participants in this feature for their commitments to making our farms safer.
1st Place: Northern Strands
Grain Bins are one of the most common accident locations on a farm. In 2015, there were 1,633 injuries in Saskatchewan alone from workplace falls. This is only the reported WCB number of falls, one can only imagine how high the real number of falls is…The Northern Strands Bin Safe System is a truly unique system in that there is nothing else available that has been engineered and pull tested in order to protect farmers, farm workers, and family members from a potentially life-threatening fall off of a grain bin.
