The cost: Farmers can rent the tractor and tanker combo for $500/day if short haul (1 mile or less from the home farm) or $600/day if long haul (2 miles or more from the home farm)
We can apply your cost-share money (see below) towards rental of this equipment. Please give us a call to discuss!
Tractor: Case IH MX 240 CVT
Tanker: 5,300 gallon Houle manure tanker
Toolbar: Bazooka LDMI toolbar
Additional LDMI cost-share: Using this equipment qualifies farmers for the $20/acre for up to 50 acres as part of the YPF cost share program.
Why LDMI?: LDMI is a farming system that incorporates manure into the soil with minimal soil disturbance. This method of manure injection decreases the amounts of nitrogen and phosphorus runoff as well as soil erosion. This equipment also works well with no-till farming systems and allows farmers to experiment with new methods of preserving nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium to save on fertilizer costs.
Special thanks to Clean Lakes Alliance, Dane County, Farmers Implement and Yahara WINs for their support of this equipment.
