Big Beet Cart Field Day

This event will be held on Wednesday, September 16th at the Reif Farms.  Location is M-81 and Harnish Road, just 1/2 mile west of M-15.
Sugar beet producers have shown an increased interest in utilizing large capacity beet carts.  The benefits of carts can include improved MAUS piling along with reduced tare, compaction and labor.  Minimizing truck traffic in the field will reduce trucking repairs along with reducing harvest stress.  Participants will be able to observe the engineering of each cart, including speed of unloading and tare reduction.

Sign in, refreshments and doughnuts at 8:30am, demonstrations start at 9am.

Featured will be the Valley Beet Cart, Spudnik, ROPA Big Bear and Kringstad Crop Shuttle.
