Poll: Producers tune in during tractor time

Published on 08 June 2020

There are plenty of options when it comes to filling long stretches of time in the tractor. 

In a recent online poll, Progressive Forage asked readers, "What is coming out of the speakers while you are on a tractor?" with the option to select all applicable options. 

Almost half of the respondents (47.3%) answered that they stick to the local radio during tractor time. The second-largest group (32.4%) said they don't listen to anything but the sound of the tractor.

The rest of the group said they listen to satellite radio, a music streaming service, podcasts or audiobooks.  end mark
