Protect your cords on the farm

Protect your cords on the farm

By Braxten Breen Cool Tools Intern

It is not uncommon to find running electrical cords inside the barn, or even around farm. As a farmer you can always find a need to run extension cords on the farm.

There are different reasons for needing an extension: for powering equipment such as power tools, irrigation pumps, lighting, or whatever the need may be.

Keeping those cord connections safe and tight can be a struggle. Not doing it properly can lead to serious consequences.

The Twist and Seal family of products has got the farm covered, with industry leading extension cord protection products made in the USA.

This heavy-duty extension cord protection product is built to withstand the toughest conditions around the farm. A patented cord strain relief system prevents any farm animals, or farmers, accidentally pulling apart the connection if they trip over it

Fitting 10-16 gauge grounded three prong connections, the sealing system will automatically adjust to fit various diameter cords sizes.

The little brother of the Maxx, the Cord Protect, has the same idea as the Maxx but is designed for medium to light duty connections. No matter what season it is, Twist and Seal has made life on the farm one step easier, allowing farmers to leave their connections out in the rain or snow or watering device, resulting in protection at all times.

Finally, protecting multiple cord connections, Twist and Seal Cord Dome Multiple Outdoor Extension Cord and Power Strip Protection In Action is the Cord Dome. Having the ability to protect an entire power cord strip and Y-connectors, the Cord Dome will enclose all connections keeping them safe and sound from electrical hazards.

All Twist and Seal products are produced with heavy duty commercial grade plastic and with UV resistant material.

If the farm has multiple locations where cord connections are not protected, Twist and Seal offers packs where multiple products of that specific protector can be bought.

Creating the Potential for Higher Yields - Phil Needham

Video: Creating the Potential for Higher Yields - Phil Needham

Phil Needham grew up on a family farm on the east coast of England, where 140-160 bu/ac wheat yields were common with around  20-22” of annual rainfall. After college and university Phil moved to the USA in 1989 to join Opti-Crop, a consulting company based in Kentucky. Opti-Crop had contributed to more than a doubling of the Kentucky state wheat yield when they were asked by growers to expand their services to surrounding states and west to Oklahoma, Kansas and Nebraska. In 2000 they expanded their wheat consulting to South Dakota, North Dakota and Minnesota to manage spring wheat in those areas, and in 2002 they moved further north to help spring wheat producers in Saskatchewan and Manitoba.

Phil will discuss some of the weak links he has seen within the management systems of spring cereal producers across AB, SK and MB. He will then provide options to minimize or eliminate these weak links, to push yields, protein and profits higher, especially in years with above average rainfall. Phil will also discuss ways to minimize expenses and risk, in the years with below average rainfall.
