New Equipment for Even Better Service

Federated add to custom application equipment fleet
This winter Federated Co-ops invested in several new pieces of equipment to further improve custom application services in the 2022 growing season and beyond.
 
Both Ogilvie and Osceola now boast two new dry spreaders – a RoGator in Ogilvie, and a John Deere in Osceola – increasing spreading capacity to serve Federated growers even more efficiently. Learn more about the RoGator/New Leader G5 Spreader in this video.
 
The yellow RoGator features VSN® Visual Guidance (note the pictured black box labeled “Raven”) which accurately guides the equipment down the field, keeping the operations wheel tracks between the crop rows, not on them. Watch this video on VSN Visual Guidance.
 
The Ogilvie and Osceola locations will also employ two new John Deere sprayers with JD’s technology, the ExactApply™ nozzle control system, which additionally boosts the accuracy of custom application. Check out this video to learn more about ExactApply.
 
Talk to your Federated Agronomist to learn how these new spreaders/sprayers can meet your custom application needs.
