Western Sales is excited to announce that we are now a Seed Hawk Dealer in the province. Väderstad is a Swedish agricultural machinery manufacturer and global leader in soil tillage and seed drilling. For over 50 years Väderstad has been providing modern agriculture with innovative, highly efficient agricultural machinery and methods. By simplifying work and improving net profit for the farmer, the company's vision is to become the world's leading partner for outstanding emergence. By the end of 2014, Väderstad acquired Seed Hawk and the Väderstad product family expanded considerably. The enhanced product range meets the needs for smaller growers, as well as the largest broad acre businesses.
Seed Hawk is a precision air drill, delivering unparalleled accuracy in all soil conditions. Whether an operation practices zero-till, min-till or conventional tillage – the innovative Seed Hawk air cart and toolbar seeding system delivers exceptional seed and fertilizer placement in one pass. The result is quick, uniform crop emergence, better quality, and higher yield for a better return on investment on your farm.
The 2019 financial year turned out to be another record year for the company, with a turnover of over $450 million CDN, an increase of more than 10 per cent compared to the previous year. And the company is continuing to grow. So far this year, Väderstad has taken on approximately 150 new employees. The group is family owned and the head office is in Väderstad, Sweden. Väderstad is represented in 40 countries and on all continents.
