The John Deere booth at the 2017 Cattle Industry Convention and NCBA Trade Show is the place to be if you’re a producer, says Dave Yuska, Senior Product Manager.
“It looks like we’ve got pretty much everything a livestock producer would be looking for in their product portfolio. We’ve got the tractors, the 569 baler, which is our best selling round baler in our family of balers. We also have some utility vehicles and then some construction worksite equipment as well.”

John Deere also featured their 333G compact track loader, a new series for Deere that features a newly redesigned cab with air ride and a backup camera for driving in reverse. The 12,000 pound machine has 100 horsepower, a final Tier 4 engine, a 10 and 1/2 foot lift height and a 3700 pound rated lift capacity, “so it will pretty much do anything you want it to in those cattle operations out there,” Kent Hughes told Jamie.
Customers at the John Deere booth are excited about the new series because of its versatility, Hughes says. It’s a prime mover, but the number of different attachments, from a manure scraper to post hole digger make it truly special on a cattle operation.

As Director of Industry Relations and liaison to trade organizations, Chuck Studer was also on hand on behalf of the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association. John Deere is a proud sponsor of the organization and works to support the men and women raising beef through partnership programs. Not only is Deere the executive sponsor of utility vehicles, they also co-sponsor the Young Cattlemen’s Conference.
“As you know we need a lot of advocates for agriculture, ambassadors for agriculture across the U.S. and the Young Cattleman’s Conference does a great job of identifying and and developing advocates, not only for the cattle industry, but agriculture in general.”
