Change in the Group Executive Board:

CLAAS appoints Jan-Hendrik Mohr as new CEO

The CLAAS Group Shareholders' Committee recently appointed Jan-Hendrik Mohr as the new CEO of the CLAAS Group effective April 1, 2023. The outgoing CEO, Thomas Böck, has decided to step down as CEO of CLAAS to pursue new endeavors. While the Shareholders and Group Executive Board have acknowledged Böck’s decision, they were excited to be able to find an experienced successor in Jan-Hendrik Mohr.


Less Compaction, Higher Yields, More Profit

In this competitive study, CLAAS wanted to determine the impact of tractor compaction on canola yields. A third-party agronomic company, Antara Research, cultivated and planted a test plot using the CLAAS AXION 930 TERRA TRAC, John Deere 8RT and John Deere 8RX to determine how each machine affected field compaction and crop yields.

Stress Less. Harvest More.

JAGUAR “assistance systems” prove worth in university trial.

Anyone who has ever harvested forage crops knows that there is a LOT happening in the cab of a forage harvester. From the driver’s seat, the operator must coordinate logistics, read the terrain, watch the weather, mind the crop conditions, manage the assistance systems, optimize machine output, and direct the crew . . . seemingly all at the same time. It is a stressful endeavor even for the most experienced drivers.

@LauraFarms (She also Travels)

Midwestern farmer – and YouTube influencer – tours CLAAS in Germany!

In many ways, Laura and her husband Grant are typical Midwestern farmers. They both grew up on farms, learning the meaning of hard work from a very early age. Together they raise corn and soybeans – common crops for the area. The young couple also enjoys college sports and outdoor activities, like most other farmers in southern Nebraska. If it weren’t for a following of more than 426,000 subscribers on YouTube, you might think the young couple was somewhat unremarkable. You would be wrong.
