Medicine Hat Branch PD Event: Combine Harvesters and their Functions
5:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Register by September 17, 2019
Have you ever seen a combine harvester working in the vast grain fields of Alberta in August and September and wondered how that machine works?
Come and find out! This evening will include:
- a history on the engineering development of the combine harvester and how modern machines are developed and tested
- a review of the sub-assemblies of the combine and how those assemblies control the different processes required to harvest grain
- a discussion on the precision agricultural technologies found on today's combines and how those technology options collect agronomic data
- how today's farmers analyze that data to make informed management decisions and improve their farming decisions
There will also be a new combine present during the presentation, so it is a great opportunity to get up close to the machinery.
The event will be hosted in the service department of Cervus Equipment, so please bring steel-toe footwear and safety glasses. It is possible that we will be outside for parts of the event, so please bring outerwear as well.
