Southern Tractor signs on with Vermeer Hay Equipment Group

MOULTRIE — Southern Tractor and Outdoors Inc. has just recently been approved as the authorized Vermeer Hay Equipment Dealer in Moultrie.

According to Mike Horne, of Southern Tractor and Outdoors Inc., the decision to add the Vermeer hay equipment to their equipment mix is based primarily on “the high level of focus and emphasis Vermeer places on product innovation in the area of hay harvesting and processing. These folks invented big round baling more than 30 years ago. And they’re one of the leaders in the hay equipment industry today.

“Their parts, service and warranty support is exemplary; which makes them the kind of company we like doing business with,” added Horne.

“Hay producers have special needs,” he said. “We take a lot of pride in serving those needs, whatever the situation; so it’s nice to have a  partner who under-stands what it takes to keep producers running when it’s time to make hay.”

Southern Tractor   and Outdoors Inc. employees are gearing  up to travel to Vermeer corporate headquarters in Pella, Iowa, to under-go forage specialist training in sales, service, parts and retail financing.

Vermeer Corporation manufactures a complete line of hay tools including round balers, mowers, mower/conditioners, rakes, tedders, bale processors and silage wrappers; plus biomass harvesting equipment used for renewable energy and reclamation; and a wide assortment of industrial products for tree, construction, environmental and underground utility service work.

Should the U.S. negotiate with groups it considers terrorists?

No. Never.
Generally no, but prisoner exchanges are an exception.
Negotiation will be required to end the conflicts we have with those groups.
