NASCAR Great Ward Burton Uses Haybuster's 77 Seed Drill for Wildlife Preservation

Share Article

Ward Burton, NASCAR Cup driver and founder of the Ward Burton Wildlife Foundation, has teamed up with agricultural equipment manufacturer Haybuster to promote wildlife preservation. Burton's foundation chose to use Haybuster's 77 All Purpose Seed Drill for planting everything from large grains like soybeans to small grains like wheat, as well as cool and warm season grasses. The drill works well for managing wildlife preserves with no-till practices and erosion control. The 77 seed drill is a perfect fit for the foundation, allowing them to manage the 2,000 acre wildlife refuge system of protected land and over eight miles of riverfront along the Staunton River in Virginia.

The Ward Burton Wildlife Foundation and I are very excited about using the Haybuster 77 Seed Drill

"We are very excited to have Daytona 500 Winner Ward Burton using the 77 Seed Drill as a member of the Haybuster family," said Al Goehring, Haybuster Marketing Manager. "Our shared commitment to wildlife preservation made the decision to partner with Ward and his wildlife foundation very easy. The Ward Burton Wildlife Foundation has served as a model of conservation across the nation, and Ward will increase awareness of the important role Haybuster products can play in many conservation efforts."

Ward Burton and his foundation are leaders in environmental education and advocacy, resource protection, and habitat restoration. The Haybuster 77 Seed Drill gives Burton a versatile tool that he can use with all his conservation practices - to reduce pollution, improve water quality, restore habitat, and replenish the land often taken away by development.

"The Ward Burton Wildlife Foundation and I are very excited about using the Haybuster 77 Seed Drill," said Burton. "It's a simple one stop shop application for anything we want to do. We don't have to plow and we don't have to disc. It does such a great job for the wildlife, and it helps conserve our environment because we do not create erosion. It's a great product. We use it religiously every spring and fall."
