Moody’s Equipment was a proud sponsor of the Big Hitch, which rode in the Calgary Stampede Parade this past Friday, July 8th. The Big Hitch was a tribute to Slim Moorehouse (image left); who in 1925 drove a hitch of 36 Percheron horses (pulling 10 grain wagons and 1,477 bushels of wheat) through the Calgary Stampede Parade. Slim Moorehouse was the only driver navigating the 350 foot train of horses and wagons during his original, record setting run.
On June 29, 2016 the Hitch Masters (40 volunteers in total) drove a replica of this hitch, 36 horses and 10 wagons, from Gleichen, AB to Chestermere, AB (nearly 75 kilometers); before finally making their way through the Calgary Stampede Parade. The hitch that was taken through the parade was reduced to 20 horses and 5 wagons due to safety concerns, but it was no less impressive!
The Big Hitch garnered plenty of local attention, and even some national/international attention. There were several volunteers from the United States that made their way up to Alberta to be a part of the historical event. If you would like more information regarding the Big Hitch, please follow the link(s) below. All the photos from the parade can be seen on the Moody’s Equipment Facebook Page.

Winnipeg, MB and Balzac, AB — May 26, 2016 — Farmers Edge™, a global leader in precision agriculture and independent data management solutions, announced today it has partnered with Moody’s Equipment, the leading agriculture equipment and shortlines dealer in Alberta and Saskatchewan. Under the agreement, Moody’s will introduce the Farmers Edge precision agriculture platform to customers at its locations in Balzac, High River, and Olds, bringing data-driven strategies to help optimize on-farm profitability and sustainability.
The partnership combines Farmers Edge hardware, software and boots on the ground support with Moody’s experienced Precision Land Management (PLM) department to help multiple lines of equipment communicate on the farm.

This partnership signals our commitment to innovation and technology; and ultimately, our commitment to providing the best products and services for our customers in Balzac, High River, and Olds.”
With coverage of some 4 million acres of farmland across the Balzac, High River, and Olds locations, the partnership solidifies Farmers Edge strong market presence in Alberta and increases access to the comprehensive Farmers Edge package, enabling Moody’s growers to efficiently and precisely farm more acres with different needs.
“This partnership with Farmers Edge gives Moody’s customers the opportunity to use their PLM equipment to its full potential,” said Duane Kent, Moody’s Precision Land Management (PLM) representative for Alberta. In particular, access to the Farmers Edge team and technology will help Moody’s customers maximize their use of PLM tools on the farm with a plug-and-play solution that makes precision agriculture technology easier and more cost-effective to use.
“Moody’s has proven expertise in equipment and strong, established relationships with growers, and we’re proud to join forces to provide their customers with access to the leading Precision Ag technology and data solutions,” said Farmers Edge president and CEO Wade Barnes. “Farmers have multiple partners when it comes to supplying the needs of the farm and Farmers Edge looks forward to complimenting the dedication of the Moody’s service team in providing, setting up and servicing new equipment. With this partnership, existing and future customers will have access to an integrated solution that offers on the farm support as an important contribution to farming decisions, productivity, and profitability.”
