Feeding the world is serious business.  From the industry’s first wagon hoist to the pioneering round baler, Vermeer inventions have helped farmers get their work done quickly and efficiently.  We’re always looking for a better way.

The Forage Innovations group at Vermeer is dedicated to research and development, with the goal of creating productivity-enhancing solutions that do not exist today. Check out a few of their concepts brought to life below.
