Winter is upon us and with the recent small amount of rain and the change in the weather, winter sowing will soon kick off if it has not already begun.For many farmers now is the time to be looking over existing machinery, completing services and repairs or looking at the market for new equipment.

Success, livelihoods and hopefully profits depend not only on choosing the right types of crop, sowing times and crop management, but also having suitable and reliable machinery to get the job done.

The family owned Great Western Corporation has been at the forefront in the research, design and manufacture of agricultural equipment for over 80 years. Today their strong portfolio of equipment, carrying the Excel and Gyral brands are acknowledged as industry leaders, and deliver cost efficient performance and longevity and reliability.
