LEXINGTON, Neb., Jan. 30, 2014 — Orthman Mfg. announces the appointment of Randy Haarberg as Precision Tillage Systems Agronomist. Haarberg will focus on agronomic education and will assist the Orthman team, dealers and growers worldwide with crop production systems recommendations.
“Randy’s 26 years as an agronomist focused on the high scale producer, combined with his long-time, real-world experience with Orthman equipment, will provide our dealers and growers with real expertise and results-based solutions around the world,” said Orthman Sales and Agronomy Manager, Justin Troudt. “Randy offers a lifetime of experience to our agronomy team and will be a valuable resource for our Allied Partner dealers."
“I am very excited to join the Orthman team,” said Haarberg. “As a private agronomist, my goal was to help growers achieve production and yield goals, to create a profitable farm- and Orthman was often part of that solution. Today I can help achieve those same goals for Orthman customers around the world."
