Farm Nutrients Spreading Equipment
One of the most asked questions that we get about chicken litter fertilizer at Farm Nutrients is how will my litter be spread? What spreader does the best job?
We at Farm Nutrients pride ourselves in having top of the line spreading equipment to service your application needs. We operate a fleet of four Tebbe brand litter spreaders. Two of them are pull type spreaders behind Magnum 380 tractors equipped with LSW tires to minimize compaction to your fields. The other two are self-propelled Oxbo spreaders equipped with Tebbe brand boxes to maximize capacity, speed, and flotation while spreading your fields. Our payloaders are even equipped with large buckets and flotation tires to minimize our footprint.
Tebbe builds the best spreading equipment on the market today. They utilize heavy duty parts to minimize downtime, allowing us to be more time efficient when working through the busy spreading season. When you pair this with the 550 horsepower chassis of the Oxbo 5105 nutrient applicator, we can minimize compaction, maximize field and road speed, and produce a spread pattern through varying material that is second to none. Our Tebbe spreaders can produce an even particle size while spreading rates from 1000 pounds to 15 ton or more of product. We typically run between 1-6 tons per acre of litter.
On top of the excellence in equipment, our spreaders are equipped with the most state of the art GPS systems available for litter spreaders. We can produce coverage maps and even apply variable rate litter upon request. Our operators utilize Apple iPads so they can receive your application maps digitally to minimize downtime as well. So keep an eye out for the crew while they travel across Iowa this season to apply litter to your fields in their big yellow and green machines! They care about your fields and operation and look forward to helping you build healthy soils and higher yields!
