For the farm department

Capture more snow

The new high-performance Scoop Plow from Hiniker Company offers a unique concave shape with 20°, fixed-angle outer ends to help reduce snow spillage. The plow also angles left and right to allow for conventional plowing applications.

Available in 8- and 9-ft. lengths, the plow features a polyethylene moldboard. A three-section trip edge with a 9-in.-high pivot point provides maximum protection from high obstacles. Each section trips independently for smoother plowing and less stress on the plow.

The new plow uses the Hiniker quick hitch mounting system, which is a self- aligning, drive-in system.

Price of the 8-ft. plow is $4,311, and the 9-ft. plow sells for $4,711. Contact Hiniker Co., Dept. FIN, 58766 240th St., Mankato, MN 56002, 507/625-6621, visit or, or circle 190.

Green wire fencing

Farmers may now go “green” with their fencing materials. The barbed wire manufacturer Bekaert introduces a new line of high-tensile wire that weighs less than traditional wire, is easier to install, lasts longer and is green in color. The new wire fencing is call Gaucho Green Label. Its new barbed wire features the same linear strength of standard barbed wire but has half the weight. Its reverse twist and higher carbon steel reduce maintenance. The addition of Bezinal and paint protects the wire and makes it green. Retail prices range from $42 to $47 for a reel of the wire.

A high-tensile field fence, smooth wire, and fence stay with the Gaucho Green Label also are available. Contact Bekaert Corp., Dept. FIN, 1395 S. Marietta Pkwy., Bldg. 500, Suite 100, Marietta, GA 30067, 770/514-2268, visit or, or circle 189.
