Gillespie Joins
Oak Mills As
ter Co.) White Oak Mills has
announced the addition of Greg
Gillespie of Selinsgrove as vice
president, mill operations.
With more than 14 years of feed
manufacturing experience, Gilles
pie is responsible for all mill
operations, including purchasing.
He also will categorize responsi
bilities, establish deadlines, and
develop feed manufacturing
strategies for White Oak Mills.
Gillespie said he joined White
Oak'because of "the strong ewe
values exhibited by company part
ners John and Mark Wagner and
by company employees, who are
making White Oak Mills a posi
tive and visionary company.”
He recently was employed as
vice president/general manager at
K&L Feeds, a division of Empire

gle from the cab and there is am
ple lift capacity and clearance for
crossing ditches and rough
ground. The four-wheel-drive Bi
directional easily goes through
softer ground, too.”
The New Holland auger head
ers feature dual counter-stroking
sickles for smoother cutting and
reduced vibration. The auger
flighting is five inches deep to
handle, heavy crops. In addition,
the auger floats up to IV* inches to
avoid plugging. Roll pressure is
controlled by a crank-adjusted tor
sion bar linkage.
Bidirectional tractor owners
can double cutting capacity by
towing a pull-type Model 116
windrower while pushing the
mounted auger header. “That
combination is hard to match in
large acreage alfalfa production,”
Hatz said.
and providing a foldable ROPS
for low-clearance situations, the
company’s ROPS program fea
tures attractive pricing to help
encourage customers to equip
their older tractors with a rollover
protective structure and seat belt
“We believe reducing the sell
ing price of rollover protective
structures can be an element in
convincing a customer to install
ROPS on an older tractor.” said
Bud Porter, vice president of
marketing for the U.S. and Canada
at Deere & Company. “That’s
why we adopted what we call
‘pass-through pricing’ for ROPS
kits. Very simply, that means we
sell them to John Deere dealers at
or below our average manufactur
ing cost and ask the dealers to sell
the kits without margin to reduce
the effect cost may have on a
farmer’s decision to have ROPS
and a seat belt installed on an old
er tractor.”
Porter said ROPS kits range
from $250 to $5OO in the U.S. He
said that farmers who want more
information about the ROPS pro
gram and what’s available for
their tractors should contact their
local John Deere dealer.
