Thanks to the Ohio No-Till Council for choosing Fennig Equipment to be the Ag Business of the Year! We are honored to receive the award and have to say a big thank you to all of our customers for their support over the years!
December 14th, 2018
This week was full of farm shows! Indy farm show was Tuesday-Thursday and the Ohio No-Till conference was Tuesday as well. This week Mitch and Kurt were busy in the shop putting together a cover crop inter seeder bar to head for Texas. The bar is pictured below, and is something you will want to see! We had a great crowd at the farm shows this week. A lot of farmers were in the fields this week grabbing those last few acres of crops, and next week looks favorable to get some field work done!

Have a great weekend!

Planter Fertilizer Setups
Planter fertilizer is a very popular conversation this time of the year and another specialty of ours. Kurt, our planter specialist is great with planter plumbing, mounting tanks, and any unique fertilizer placement situation you can throw at him. I want to highlight what all we can do, what we stock, and showcase some projects in pictures and videos we have done in the past. For 2x2 fertilizer, the biggest question to answer is which coulters to use. Yield 360, Yetter, Martin, etc there are several choices, and we can help make that decision based on our experience with them. Next decide hydraulic or ground driven pump and your tank carrying capacity size. on the in-furrow or on seed it is basically between the Keeton seed firmer or the Totally Tubular, both have their advantages. We stock pumps, fittings, and tanks. Give us a call today to chat with Kurt about planter fertilizer options for 2019!
Cassie's Country Cupboard Weekly Recipe:
Eggnogg Muffins
I made these muffins recently as part of a meal train for a local family, plus the extras came to the Fennig Equipment office. Even though most people turn up their noses at the word “eggnog”, no one complained about these muffins!
Eggnog Muffins
  1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  5 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces
  2 cups all-purpose flour
  1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
  1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  1/4 teaspoon salt
  1 cup eggnog
  1 large egg
  5 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
  1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a muffin pan with cooking spray or line with paper liners. Set aside.
  To make crumb topping: In small bowl, stir together the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Add in chunks of butter and rub together with your fingers until mixture looks like coarse crumbs. Set aside.
  To make the muffins: In large mixing bowl add flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Stir with a wire whisk.
  In a separate bowl or glass measuring cup combine the eggnog, egg, melted butter, and vanilla extract. Stir with wire whisk until smooth and combined.
  Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix together gently with a rubber spatula just until combined and no flour pockets remain.
  Divide the batter evenly among the 12 muffin cups. Each one will be about 3/4 full.
  Top each muffin cup off with 2-3 tablespoons of the crumb mixture. Each muffin cup should be almost full.
  Bake for 18-20 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Remove from oven and let cool slightly in the muffin pan. Remove from pan and cool completely on a cooling rack.

What Are We Up To? Assemblies & Installs
This week we are getting a Hagie sprayer ready to be a Y-drop and sprayer machine, as well as a dry cover crop machine When finished this Hagie will head to NE Ohio. Like I mentioned above Kurt and Mitch worked on a cover crop inter seeder headed for Texas, there will be a video next week on this toolbar. We also just received an order for Martin-Till row cleaners, closing wheels, and fertilizer coulters for spring planting season!
We have talked in depth about managing residue with the corn head, but this week we were finally able to test the Yield 360 chainroll on our own farm! We were very impressed with the job they did. The simulate a silage chopper by creating more surface area on the stalk as it moves through the head, without chopping it up into hundreds of pieces. The chainroll chews up the top 3/4 of the stalk and the Yetter devastator takes care of the bottom 1/4 of the stalk. The pair works really well together, and we will be using this combo a lot in the future.
Just In: Hardi Commander 1200
Just in! We just traded in a 2002 Hardi Commander 1200 90' Booms 1200 gallon tank. Really clean sprayer with duals to help float in wetter scenarios. Would make for a nice sprayer upgrade! Call 419-953-8500 to get your hands on this unit!
