COMPANY BACKGROUND & VISION: Every new McFarlane product is the result of listening to and partnering directly with growers. Our objective is to develop and provide the highest quality tools that produce a great seedbed for the farmer. We continue to work with farmers and agronomists to create revolutionary tools to give growers a perfect seedbed while saving them time, fuel and passes down the field. As a result of listening to our customers’ feedback and respecting their expertise, we created an original product with our Reel Disk and a category all its own – Vertical Tillage. Even our motto, “Superior tools for superior yields” has evolved into the new, ever true motto, “The Seedbed Specialists”.
Our continued vision targets providing best in class tools for our customers’ needs leveraging our Sauk City Wisconsin Engineering, Research, Development and Manufacturing expertise.
