The tractors on the Ranft farm are put to use in arable farming, yard work and transport work, with the farm manager himself having to transport piglets. He uses one of his Fendt tractors and his own piglet trailer for this. The piglets go to direct sellers in the area, who care about locally sourced produce and animal welfare. One of his customers even has a visitor's stable so customers can form a direct bond with the agriculture, in particular with animal rearing. Heiko regularly invests in new technology so he always works with the latest machines and prevents investment backlogs. The plant representative for Fendt Plant Protection, Gerd Leopold, was decisive in the purchase of this sprayer. Heiko was impressed with his in-depth expertise and product knowledge, as well as advice that was precisely geared to the requirements of the farm. The purchase was then made through Raiffeisen Waren GmbH, based in Kassel, and its local branch in Gudensberg. “Cooperation and great service are important to us, as is the short distance of just 6 km to the workshop,” says the farm owner. “If a machine breaks down, we need a quick solution, and this partnership makes it all run smoothly,” says Timo Wyss, Workshop Foreman at Raiffeisen Waren GmbH.
