Kubota Provides Valuable Hay Tools Training to University of Georgia Extension Agents

Kubota Experts Teach and Demonstrate Hay and Forage Equipment Use

TORRANCE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–When faculty members of the University of Georgia, Athens (UGA), College
of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences, recognized the need for their
county extension agents to gain more experience in hay and forage
production, they asked Kubota Tractor Corporation to provide the
equipment expertise.

As a result, Kubota provided hay product experts from its training
division, “Kubota University,” to help UGA on their workshop, “Producing
High Quality Hay and Improving Animal Performance,” which provides
in-depth hay production training to a number of county extension agents.

During the workshop Brent Miller, Kubota service trainer, Jason Roberts,
Kubota Southeast Division hay service representative, and Justin
Ferguson, Kubota hay business development manager, explained the
operation and function of four Kubota hay products to the group of
agents. Following the product presentations, each product was
demonstrated in a hay field to show the group how to cut, dry and bale
quality hay using Kubota tractors and hay equipment.

“Kubota is proud to work with UGA on this workshop as it proved to be
very informative for the agents regardless of their experience and
knowledge prior to attending,” said Kevin Cobb, senior product training
manager for Kubota. “Farmers often seek the expertise of their county
extension service within their state as a principal resource for
research and knowledge, so this was also a great way for Kubota to help
farmers by training agents.”

Kubota University provides training on a wide variety of agricultural,
construction and turf topics for Kubota dealers, employees, students and
organizations. The goal of Kubota University is to enhance equipment
knowledge, safety and efficiency through hands-on experience and expert

“I sincerely thank the team at Kubota for their outstanding assistance
with this event,” said Dennis W. Hancock, PhD., University of Georgia
associate professor and state extension specialist. “Kubota invested a
lot in us, and we are very appreciative of that. I felt it was one of
the best trainings I’ve ever had the opportunity to put on, and the only
problem is how I raise the bar for the next one!”
