Project Fresh Start Pick Up
Nov 17, 2010
Earlier this week, the winning planter of Project Fresh Start was transported to the shop at Precision Planting. Members of the Precision Planting pit crew picked up Luke Goessling’s planter at his family’s farm near Whitewater, Wisc.
Luke is carrying on the family farm after the sudden death of his father, Ralph, on New Year’s Eve 1009. It was Luke’s mom, Robin (pictured below with Luke), who nominated their planter, which is named “Maria.”
TheJohn Deere 1780 12/23 row planter will be refurbished by the Precision Planting pit crew. And we’ll keep you posted of its progress
Present on pick up day from Precision Planting are (from left to right): Aaron Baer, Jerry Shay, and Dustin Blunier who are joined by Wisconsin farmer Luke Goessling.
