The proper equipment is vital to doing the job right. This is especially true in a field that requires a variety of specialized tools. The changes in seed conditioning technology have been rapid and expensive. At C.D. Ford & Sons Inc. we are committed to being a leader in this area. During the past few years, we have installed a new precision cleaner, new easy-dump elevator legs, new gravity table, and new computer-controlled bagging scale, as well as hundreds of minor changes all designed to strengthen our commitment to customer service and product excellence.
