Extreme Makeover: Planter Edition
Aug 17, 2010
We’ve partnered with Precision Planting to give one lucky farmer the chance to take his corn planter from problematic to smooth-running.
Enter Project Fresh Start and nominate yourself or another farmer to be the chosen as the recipient of a corn planter makeover. The planter does not have to be used exclusively to plant corn, but the entrant must plant some corn acres in their operation.
Write us a letter explaining why the farmer is the best choice for the makeover. Be sure to include a photo(s) of the planter as well as general information about the machine. The opportunity is open to any corn farmer, but special consideration will be given to a producer who has endured a personal or business hardship.
The winner’s planter will be picked up at the farm and transported to the Precision Planting shop where its team of pros will completely refurbish the machine from hitch pin to closing wheels. The overhauled machine will be back on the farm in time for planting—and ready to go. In addition, Precision Planting experts will be on call to help ensure a fresh start in the spring.
Nominations can be:
E-mailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Or mailed to:
Project Fresh Start
P.O. Box 958
Mexico, MO 65265
E-mail entries must be received and letters must be postmarked by October 15.
Farm Journal will announce the winner the first week of November.
