The LEXION Demo Tour Makes its Second Stop

After a successful demonstration of the LEXION 8600TT in a Pennsylvania wheat field, the LEXION Demo Tour crossed the country for its second stop in Salem, Oregon. It was here, on Golden Valley Farms, where Jeff Gray and the team from Holt Ag brought a LEXION 6900 straw walker machine to compete against the John Deere S670 in a field of crimson clover. Used as a cover crop between annual and perennial grasses, the tough-to-thresh crop is harvested for both its seed and straw using a unique rubber-coated concave developed by Holt Ag.

National Strip Till Conference Tours CLAAS

When Lessiter Media Group announced their National Strip Till Conference and Dealership Minds Summit would be held in Omaha in August 2020, CLAAS jumped at the chance to sponsor two conferences in their own back yard. The La Vista Convention Center where the event (eventually) took place is less than a mile from where the LEXION combine is assembled for farmers across North America. It was the perfect opportunity to introduce the strip till community to a machine that is perfectly suited for strip till conditions.
