Hesston Corporation, now a division of AGCO, was founded in 1947 in Hesston, Kansas. The company got its start manufacturing agricultural equipment such as hay balers and self-propelled windrowers. In 1955, Hesston introduced the world's first self-contained hay harvester, which revolutionized the way hay was harvested.
Hesston has a full line of hay tools, balers, windrowers, mowers and rakes. Hesston also offers a complete line of harvesters for wheat, corn, soybeans and alfalfa. For more than 50 years, Hesston has been known as the hay and forage innovator, creating new technology to help farmers work faster and more efficiently.
