BDC Supports Long Term Success Of Farmer Ben Smith

It has been nearly 25 years since farmer Ben Smith, based at Wantage, first took delivery of a 23tph Svegma drier. At the time he was farming approximately 1000 acres arable and 500 acres of rough grazing and grass. By 1999 a neighbouring 1000 acre farm was purchased and then a further 500 acres, so the original drier was drying produce from some 2500 acres. Further acquisitions have meant that today Ben is farming around 4500 acres, used to grow combinable crops – oilseed rape, winter wheat and beans. It is therefore no surprise that he has now made considerable new investments in new Svegma grain driers as well as other handling systems through long term supplier BDC Systems and dealer BK Grain Handling engineers who designed the proposed layout of the systems and obtained the necessary planning permission on his behalf.
