Established in 1907, before Oklahoma even attained statehood, Wheeler Farms produces registered Hereford and Angus breeding stock that is marketed to cattlemen nationwide.

The majority of the hay they produce—with a Hesston® by Massey Ferguson WR9770 windrower and MF4790 big square balers—is used to feed their own herds.

“We’ve owned Hesston equipment for as long as I can remember,” says Will Wheeler. “When it comes to hay equipment, I think they build the best that’s available. And I believe that has
been proven.

“We have very few problems with the equipment,” continues Wheeler, “and, even if we do have an issue, Livingston Machinery will be out here … even in the middle of the night if necessary. So downtime is practically non-existent.”
