Deere & Company announces a joint development agreement with Scherer Design Engineering Inc. to develop and commercialize kernel processing solutions for self-propelled forage harvesters.
“Deere is committed to developing industry-leading kernel processing solutions with the goal to drive higher milk production in dairy cows,” says Jon Chase, Global Director, Self-Propelled Forage Harvesters and Heads. “This arrangement with Scherer will only strengthen Deere’s offering and our ability to deliver clear benefits to custom operators and dairies.”
Scherer has manufactured aftermarket rolls and kernel processors since 1999. With this agreement, John Deere and Scherer will develop a broader set of industry-leading options to harvest crops and to produce feed for dairy cows.
“We are extremely pleased with this agreement,” says Jason Schiebout, manager and co-owner of Scherer. “John Deere dealers will have access, through this allied agreement, to Scherer Kernel Processor products, including aftermarket kernel processor (KP) rolls.”
For 2017, this agreement allows John Deere dealers to offer twin-cut replacement rolls for John Deere Self-Propelled Forage Harvesters.
