Looking for something fun to do this summer? Well if you ask us, nothing could be more fun than a good old-fashioned tractor pull! Every year hundreds of tractor enthusiasts bring their most souped-up tractors to compete in a competition that you have to see to believe.

<Farmers using crowdfunding

Local farmers are turning to the Internet (of all places) to generate funding for projects on their farms. Crowdfunding websites, such as KickStarter.com, are becoming an increasingly popular way for farmers to fund projects they otherwise might not have the resources to complete. From local agriculture start-ups to farm equipment purchases, we found over 800 projects on KickStarter.com's website requesting funding for as much as $50,000. A search on GoFundMe.com returns over 350 similarly related projects. With projects goals ranging from "saving the farm" to "funding growth," it’s plain to see that local farmers are meeting financial challenges in creative ways.

Keno Tractor Announces New Affordable UTVs Product Division

on Monday, 24 November 2014. Posted in Tractor Blog

Applestone UTVKeno Tractors is proud to announce its newest product division, UTV Applestone. UTV Applestone is a full service UTV sales and support dealership located in Keno, Oregon. Keno Tractor owner, Eric Nystrom, decided to add the division after noticing a gap in the United States’ UTV market. “The problem, as we see it, is that most dealers don’t offer after sales support for UTV products, leaving buyers stranded with little to no maintenance and repair options. We decided to add the UTV Applestone division not only to provide our customers with UTV’s at half the cost of other dealers, but also to offer after sales maintenance and repair support.” Keno Tractors is offering affordable UTVs starting for under $10,000.

Both kinds of farms are essential to our well-being, and in order to maintain the amazingly consistent food supply that we enjoy today, we need all of our farms to continue successfully.

Learn the fine art of listening to your tractor in hopes of keeping it running longer. One particularly important facet is to hear and identify the particular noises that our mechanical beast makes. Even though our attention is usually focused on the task at hand, that is, the bushogging, disking, etc., it is odd how our ears will pick up the smallest unusual noise that it hears.
