GARY VERMEER: CATEGORY DESIGNER

Problem: In 1971, a personal friend confessed to Gary Vermeer that he intended to sell his cow-calf business due to the hassles of baling hay and finding dependable hired hands to help put it up. The next morning, with help from product engineers, Vermeer chalked the initial design of the original Vermeer baler on the factory floor. The first prototype rolled out the door and the “One-Man Hay System” was ready 45 days later.

Answer: New Category of Round Bailers - changed the entire way the livestock and farm world works. Love “One-Man-Hay System” as his original category.
