In the competitive arena of agriculture, efficiency in managing farm operations is crucial. Curtis Kornelson, a progressive farmer from Kindersley, Saskatchewan, knows the importance of fuel – a vital yet costly resource. Ensuring his machinery is fueled and ready each morning is key to an effective harvest.
