    It was a great day for an on-farm demo in Farley, Iowa, with our dealer CJ Beeps Equipment LLC.
    The VELOCE 500 is 16'6" wide with a double cage roller configuration.
    The operating speed of 12-13 mph and 3" working depth offers good residue management with high soil coverage after the pass.
    The Veloce impressed the farmer that has been using a vertical tillage tool, which was slower and less effective.

    June is National Dairy Month, so take some time to appreciate a dairy producer while you're scarfing down that cheese you love so much.
