Jones Equipment Company, LLC is a family owned and operated business located in Massey, Maryland. The company was formed after Sean Jones, Manager of the Jones Family Farm visited Israel in1998 and observed that the dairy farmers had become much more efficient in feeding dairy cows due to the higher price of feed. Sean came back to the US excited about a self-propelled mixer feeder that farmers were using in Israel. This machine was was an RMH – Lachish Industries mixer. When it was time to replace the existing truck-mounted machine used by the Jones Family Farm, Sean decided to invest in an RMH mixer. At that time his father, Lester “Bucky” Jones was convinced that not only would the RMH machine be of benefit to Jones Family Farm but also to other dairymen in the United States.
Bucky Jones and Mike Brady, a long time partner in the dairy equipment business, along with his wife Diane and their children Sean, Andy, Cathy Baskett, and David formed Jones Equipment Co LLC. The company is the US distributor for RMH Equipment.
Since purchasing their first machine in 2006, the Jones Family Farm has used the machine to feed 1200 milk cows and 1200 heifers efficiently and cost-effectively.
