Haying Season

Right now almost everyone is thinking about our delayed planting season with all the rain that we have, but as soon as that it over it’s going to be haying season, not to mention wheat harvest. With everything being in a compressed time table again this year, are you and your machines ready to lay down and put up hay? It’s not too late to get your haying tractors and implements inspected and repaired by our Case IH factory trained service departments, to avoid down time when your hay is ready to cut. Here at Straub’s we always carry an excellent inventory of parts for your Case IH baler, mower conditioner, or windrower; along with mesh wrap and twine to keep you in the field. If you are in need of updating any of your hay tools, we have a great selection of both new and pre-owned hay tools, and likely have a model that will fit your needs. With all the rain this spring, there should be an excellent crop in store for us in 2017. Make the most of it with the right service, parts, and implements from Straub’s!

The Training Room

We all know that sports teams have a training room, and in a sense Straub’s have one too. Technically this training room doesn’t belong to Straub’s, it belongs to the Kansas State Fair Grounds, but as often as we have utilized it over the years we like to think we own a piece of it.… Continue Reading
