With acreage becoming larger for farmers, the Osmundson factory created its first disc blades in 1972. Disc blades allowed farmers to till wider and faster passes, increasing the amount of land that could be worked in a single day.
When most men went overseas to fight in World War I, there weren’t many field hands left to work stateside. To make drain tiling more efficient, farmers did away with spades and created their own rudimentary trenchers. In response to this new evolution in farming, Howard Osmundson created plowshares.
In 1903, Henry Osmundson revolutionized a shovel widely used for digging trenches for drain tiles. The spade head featured three steel bars and two holes and was forged from a single piece of metal. The result was a tool that was stronger and easier to remove mud from — helping laborers make quick work of their task.
Handling evolving field challenges takes collaboration. That’s why we make a point to partner with organizations and agricultural equipment manufacturers who are focused on the growth and development of this industry.
