Harvest is here and it's one of the busiest times of year for farmers. Midland is proud to work with agriculture partners across the country.

We asked some of those partners to take part in our Harvest Season Q&A so you can get to know them a little bit better.

Todd Westerfeld

What type of farm do you operate?

"We operate a row crop operation with winter wheat, corn, and cotton in conjunction with a coastal hay operation for a local Wagyu ranch."

What generation farmer are you?

"From what we can trace back, somewhere in the realm of a fifth generation farmer."

Where is your farm located?

"Our farm is in the Stampede Valley, west of Moody, Texas."

What is your favorite Midland product and how do you use it during harvest season?

"My favorite product by far is the MXT500. It has great rage and quality! However, I still love the MXT400 and use it in the combine. It's important to be able to communicate with everyone on the crew clearly and to be able to understand everyone inside the cab during harvest."

What is your favorite harvest recipe?

"My favorite harvest recipes are my mom's chicken crispitos and my wife's copycat Chick-fil-A sandwich."

 

Emile Guedon II

What type of farm do you operate?

"We operate a row crop farm. We also have a cow/calf operation." 

What generation farmer are you?

"My grandpa is a third generation farmer, my dad and Uncle Mike are fifth generation farmers, my brothers and I are sixth generation farmers."

Where is your farm located?

"Our farm is located in Mississippi and Louisiana." 

What is your favorite Midland product and how do you use it during harvest season?

"The MXT500 is our favorite product by far. We use it along with the MXT400's in the tractors, combines, sprayers, and service trucks. Communication is vital. The radios allow us to communicate immediately with everyone in range. We're able to all converse easily. It's something cellphones don't do well."

What is your favorite harvest recipe?

"Wild hog hammered with 55 grain FMJ’s."

Andy Dole

What type of farm do you operate?

"Our primary focus is producing corn and soybeans, although our farm used to raise a diverse selection of livestock alongside our crops."

"I am a sixth generation row crop farmer."

Where is your farm located?

"Our farm is located in Central Illinois." 

What is your favorite Midland product and how do you use it during harvest season?

"My favorite Midland product is the MXT115 Micromobile Radio. This product offers great range and voice quality while selling for a very reasonable price. It is a great starter radio for one's entire farming fleet and I encourage others to try it out for themselves."

What is your favorite harvest recipe?

"Recipes are not my strong suit, so my harvest recommendation is to find the nearest gas station and find a nice protein bar!"

James Pieper

What type of farm do you operate?

"I own and operate a corn and soybean farm by myself."

What generation farmer are you?

"I am a first generation farmer, twice removed I say. My great grandpa was the last family member to farm here so I restarted the farm."

Where is your farm located?

"My farm is located in Wells,  MN." 

What is your favorite Midland product and how do you use it during harvest season?

"I like the MXT500 radio. I use this product to communicate between the combine and the grain cart drivers. It sure is handy and has really clear sound."

What is your favorite harvest recipe?

"My grandmother makes a lot of Cheeseburgers when I'm in the field! I never get tired of beef!"

Chet Larson
