15 Jun Harvest kickoff breakfasts
Case IH is a well-known company for making harvesting equipment to help feed the world. Last week, we had an opportunity to go to thier annual “Harvest Kickoff” Breakfast to mark the start of this years harvest season. As long as I can remember, Dan Renaud has hosted this breakfast. He has been with Case for 35 years and sadly this was his last year.
So what goes on in these kickoff breakfasts? First, Dan starts out with new products from Case, and reassures customers that their “ProHarvest, Harvest Support” trucks will be up and running this year, following the harvest trail. Most importantly, the majority of this meeting is to spread the word about safety. Dan is a true #AGvocate for agriculture and a stickler for safety. We all should be if we are in this line of business. Having an ag-related job is a dangerous one and not to be taken lightly. It is dangerous, but we need to take all the precautions we can to work in a safe environment.

Since this was Dan’s last year, the U.S. Custom Harvesters Inc. presented him with a wheat sculpture to show thier appreciation for all that Dan has done over the years. My niece Evie was the lucky one to present this gift to him, along with Tracy Zeorian (Zeorian Harvesting), executive director for USCHI. He was very grateful and overwhelmed by surprise. Thank you. Dan Renaud, for your years of service to custom harvesters, farmers and the world. Thank you for helping better their lives with safety.

The time is flying! I am a little behind because we have been so busy around here. I guess it really is harvest season! Here’s what we were up to a little over a week ago.
MacDon is a well-known name for agricultural equipment. Many harvesters all around the world use this equipment in their business to get the job done. Every year, MacDon hosts a breakfast and seminar introducing new equipment and efforts to help their customers along the harvest trail. Many major manufacturers including MacDon take this route as harvesters do, supporting us along the way with any repair needs we may have. They call it “Harvest Support.” Mom, Dan, Leslie and I were able to go to this seminar, join in the nice breakfast they served, and see a lot of our harvest friends. Thank you to MacDon for hosting and for all you do for harvesters, farmers and the world along the dusty trail!
Be safe and God bless!
