Touring AGCO/CAT manufacturing plant

By: Ben Matson

This summer the MaxYield interns and Chad Meyer were able to travel to Jackson, MN to visit the AGCO/ CAT manufacturing plant.  It was a very educational trip and I was able to learn a lot. We began by touring the brand new museum and show room that had many different types of equipment on display.  From there, we continued our tour into the equipment assembly line.   It was amazing to see equipment such as: CAT tractors, Massy Ferguson tractors, Row Gators, and many more types of equipment being built.  We were able to tour the facilities and watch as each part was constructed into a finished piece of equipment.

My favorite part of the trip was being able to see the different types of technology used in the process of manufacturing equipment.  They have small robots that are able to travel around the facility and drop off parts with people working as needed.

It was a beneficial trip to have taken and I really enjoyed our time at the CAT facilities.
