27 row 20" Corn Header, built by Bish Enterprises, harvesting corn in South Dakota

Bish Enterprises, a pioneer in agricultural innovation for over 40 years, is proud to announce a groundbreaking achievement with the successful launch of the world's largest folding corn header, boasting an impressive 27-row 20" configuration.

Designed to meet the dynamic requirements of modern agriculture, this cutting-edge corn header is set to redefine efficiency standards for the upcoming 2023 harvest season. With a remarkable 45-foot in-field cutting width (which reduces to 30' when folded) and a substantial weight of over 8 tons, this equipment seamlessly combines efficiency, versatility, and durability.

Andrew Bish, Chief Operating Officer of Bish Enterprises, expressed his enthusiasm, stating, "Our latest addition transcends mere machinery. It represents our unwavering commitment to continuously empower the farming community with top-tier tools, equipping them to meet the challenges and opportunities of modern farming."

Brad Bish, Owner and CEO, reflected on the company's journey, affirming, "Each Bish product is a testament to our family's enduring dedication to agriculture. This corn header, in particular, stands as a beacon of our commitment to innovation and the farming community."

Key Performance Highlights:

  • At a steady pace of 5 mph, the header showcases its prowess by harvesting approximately 6,148 bushels per hour in fields yielding 225 bushels per acre.
  • Accelerating to 6 mph, its efficiency peaks at around 7,357 bushels per hour.

The proud owner of this state-of-the-art header can look forward to a transformative 2023 harvest season, leveraging its unmatched productivity.

Bish Enterprises wishes to extend its profound appreciation to the dedicated and talented Bish Team members, local farming families, and collaborators who were instrumental in this project's success. The invaluable contributions of the Hoelk, Hunnicutt, and Humphrey families, coupled with the support from Bish Team members and the local AKRS team, have been pivotal.
