On Monday March 26, 2018 DesCombes Agri-Buiness sponsored the Benton County Cattlemen meeting in Cole Camp MO. Presentation was done by Boyd Quinley, Vermeer Territory Manager and Austin Shelby, Hay Doc.
The western Farm Show was February 23-25 at the American Royal Complex in Kansas City, MO. Vermeer had a booth with several pieces of equipment for guests to view. There were Vermeer representatives including Dan on site to answer any questions and talk what's new in forage for Vermeer. Thanks to everyone that stopped by and visited!
DesCombes Agri-Business, Inc., was founded in 1972, by Charles and Dorcas DesCombes. It was set up as a Farm Dealer with Vermeer which meant owning and operating a Vermeer baler on the dealer’s farm.
As one of the first dealers to carry the Vermeer round baler, Charles ran the first model, a 605A baler. Since then the company has operated all 605 models to date.
Charles focused on selling and starting the balers, while Dorcas handled the parts department and bookkeeping. Their son, Dan, and daughter in-law, Ki Ki, took over the business in 2011, and are the present owners. Charles still comes to the business in the morning to help with calls and customer questions. He may still be known for being a science teacher in Clinton for 25 years, retiring in 1990.
DesCombes Agri-Business is known for its outstanding customer service and the knowledge the dealership is able to provide regarding any forage questions its customers may have.
DesCombes offers a full line of hay equipment for small and large operations. They carry both new and used equipment. Since 1972, DesCombes has expanded their forage line in conjunction with Vermeer, from balers to a full line today, including balers, mowers, rakes, tedders, bale processors, and bale wrappers.
DesCombes currently has six employees. With the help of these employees DesCombes Agri-Busines is able to offer equipment repairs, in the field service, trouble-shooting over the phone, new belts and belt repair, monitor repair, a large parts inventory, winter service on equipment, financing options on select new/used models, in-season availability by phone, after hours parts set out, and the ability to ship anywhere.
