Gienger Farms Needed to Automate Old Equipment. FarmHQ Made It Happen.

Equipment: 2 Hard Hose Reels

Location: Oregon, USA

Operation: Dairy Farm


Gienger Farms is a third-generation dairy farm that grows grass and corn for animal feed. While much has changed since their grandfather owned the business, they still irrigate using his hard hose reels. In order to save time and improve safety controls when they fertigate with manure, they wanted to automate their irrigation, but they were unable to purchase new, expensive equipment.

The Solution

After installing FarmHQ themselves on their reels and pumps – they say it was an “easy setup” – the Gienger’s spend less time on irrigation and more time on other priority projects. They “really enjoy” the option to shut off their reels and pumps remotely without having to drive out to the field – and knowing that the pump will shut itself off if the reel stops for any reason.

In Their Words

A Real ROI

“Even if things go wrong just a few times and FarmHQ shuts the pump off, it totally pays for itself.”

No More Guess Work

“Before FarmHQ, we always struggled with knowing when to shut off the pump, and timing that, and then guessing when it was going to come in and checking on it. It wasted a lot of time.”

Bottom Line

“There are a lot of gimmicks out there, but FarmHQ has actually made our jobs easier. It’s been a good experience, and we’re happy with it.”
