Farmer Survey - Beaver County

Beaver County farmers are invited to take a short survey to help the Conservation District provide better service to our farming community. This brief survey will ask some basic questions to help the District understand the needs of the farm community. Please take this survey and pass along the link to other farmers in Beaver County.

Farm Equipment for Rent
Beaver County Farmers

​8’ Truax FLEXII 812RD No-Till Drill 

The purpose of the drill rental program is to encourage and assist farmers in implementing no-till crop production systems, including cover crops, as well as promote good pasture/forage management. Reducing tillage can improve soil health and farm economics. Renting this drill provides farmers with a low-cost opportunity to try no-till planting and determine if it can be an asset to their farm management.

Stoltzfus Redhawk 40 Spreader 

This is a 4 ton spreader (5 ton with installed extensions). It can be rented for $6.00 per ton to spread your ag lime. Lime is used to adjust the ph. of your soil. Proper ph. can improve soil fertility and provide optimum yields. If you conduct soil testing and apply lime to soil test recommendations the cost can be reduced to $5.00 per ton. 

For more information on our farm equipment rental program please contact Rich Voytko at 724-378-1701 or richard.voytko@bccdpa.us
