as the Successful Farming Magazine Engine Man
magazine’s name states, the mission of the entire staff is to be a
tool for the prosperity of those that make farming and ranching their
living. My personal goal is to educate, guide and challenge you to
make the equipment side of your agricultural operation as vibrant and
dynamic as possible.
this cutting edge technology is explored while not neglecting
tried-and-true methods that have proven to be irreplaceable. On the
pages of SF you will find a unique balance of theory and technology to
improve farm and ranch productivity.
a mindset that acknowledges that just because something is traditional
does not mean it is out dated; and just because it is new it does not
mean it has value. This edict has spawned the SF Engine Man through the
vision of Dave Mowitz.
impetus for the SF Engine Man was the acknowledgement that any
successful operation applies the same level of scrutiny to each aspect
of the business. As we all know the “bottom line” of any farm or ranch
is the cumulative effect of all costs of production versus the price
received for the harvest. Thus, it is possible that an excellent
decision made in the field that creates a substantial yield bump can
easily be erased by an avoidable machinery breakdown that was rooted in
misinformation or a lack of understanding. As the SF Engine Man I want
to put an end to that ---- I want you to keep what you make and use that
profit to generate even more revenue the following harvest season!
cause, I will provide an eclectic array of primers through Successful
Farming that will address all aspects of the machinery side of your farm
or ranch operation. Some will be more in-depth and technical while
others may be more rudimentary or out of the ordinary. I suggest that
you keep an open mind and read each as a resource. What may not have
value today may prove worthy tomorrow. You will be able to read my
articles also on the Successful Farming website
www.agriculture.com and watch some of my videos there too.
important thing is for you to recognize that I am here for you. So

families of your caliber prosper and grow. Thank you so much for your

disconnected world. May God bless and keep you.
