Customer:

Marty Hanehan
Owner of Turning Point Dairy LLC
Saratoga Springs, NY

Customer Needs:

Marty Hanehan plants about 1000 acres of corn and 500 of soybeans and was looking for a way to save seed and maximize yielding potential.

Specialist’s Solution/Outcome:

Marty contacted Joe Jadhon, a Precision Farming Specialist. After discussing how far in Marty would like to go, Joe led him in the direction of running air clutches on his planter with an auto-steer system.

Equipment Used:

Joe installed an EZ pilot on the 7810 John Deere and a Trucount air clutch system with Field IQ on a Kinze 12 row planter. Combined, Marty came out of the mix with a fully based Trimble system that gave him individual row shutoffs and auto-steering through EZ pilot.

Customer’s/Specialist’s reflections:

“I feel that I’ve saved about 5% of my seed through planting, but the real value comes with the increase in yields as well as the saving on seeds costs.”
Marty Hanehan, Owner Turing Point Dairy LLC
“Marty was extremely pleased with the timeliness and placement of components from the whole installation as well as the knowledge behind our support”
Joe Jadhon, MT Precision Farming Specialist
