Collect yield data

Yield data has become a very important factor in today’s farming. It plays a part in many aspects including cash leases, crop insurance, fertilizer applications, and more. Rooster Ag’ will collect each field’s yield data and apply it to your 10-year running average ensuring your field’s progress is being tracked appropriately.


Manage insurance requirements

Rooster Ag’ will be by your side through thick and thin. We understand that life throws curveballs and we are here to assist both landowners and tenants with their insurance needs and requirements.

Field maintenance evaluations

Every farm has maintenance and we understand that you want your field looking and operating as smoothly as possible. Rooster Ag’ is proud to offer field maintenance evaluations for no additional charge. We will make sure that each of your farms has the pristine look that you expect your property to have. We will physically evaluate the waterways and ditches to make sure that they are mowed timely, free of debris and aesthetically maintained by your tenant. We will ensure that the tiles are working properly and that there are no glaring issues that need to be addressed.
