A Step Ahead

When Rudolf Bauer built his first high-pressure manure pump roughly 80 years ago, the world was a much simpler place. World population was just two billion people and even with the small-scale and traditional agricultural methods of the day, food security was correspondingly high. The tools and methods of that time are no longer sufficient to feed the world today. Professional resource management and efficient soil management are now indispensible.

BAUER has always been ahead of its time with outstanding technological developments and has set landmarks with system solutions for liquid manure and irrigation management as well as with separators.
