Will-O-Crest Farms LLC, a 1,800 cow dairy farm with 3,500 acres of crops, has an opening for an individual to be a member of our crop team. We operate mostly newer John Deere equipment and use precision technology to plant and harvest our crops, corn for silage and grain, alfalfa, triticale, wheat, soybeans and snap beans. We use yield monitors on both the forage harvester and combine to gather yield data and a mobile work order system to help track work and costs. Most planting is done using strip-till or no-till. Our goal after corn silage and bean harvest is to plant cover crop on these acres to improve soil health and uptake nutrients. We use tractor trailers to haul silage, grain and manure and use drag hose technology to land apply the manure. When cropping is not occupying our time, we maintain and repair our equipment. If this is of interest to you, please contact us.
