Layman Farms – 4 Major Enterprises
Corn and soybeans remain the major focus of our operation. We own, operate and maintain the full line of equipment necessary to raise these crops as well as store them and deliver them to market during non-harvesting months. GPS-guided soil sampling provides specific prescriptions for variable rate fertilizer and lime applications as well as seed populations.
Drainage, Land Conservation and Land Clearing
What began as a way for us to install our own field tile, build waterways and clear fencerows became an enterprise to improve land we rent as well as a means to provide custom work for others. We own and maintain a line of equipment to facilitate this type of work including a tile plow, rotary ditcher, tile trencher, backhoe, hydra-hoe and bulldozer.
Fertilizer and Lime Application
This enterprise also began as a way for us to timely apply our own fertilizer and lime using variable rates following prescriptions written based on GPS-guided zone soil samples. We are also able to offer these services on a custom basis. We own, lease and maintain the line of equipment necessary to fully implement this enterprise including a Terragator spreader, multi-bin trailer, dry tender, wheel loader and dump-bed trailer.
Trucking and Transportation
We own a number of semi-tractors and trailers that serve as a support system for the various enterprises. We haul all of our own grain to market and can haul all of the heavy equipment needed for the different enterprises.
