U.S. Custom Harvesters, Inc. inducts Cunningham man to Hall fo Fame


U.S. Custom Harvesters, Inc. inducted their 2023 Hall of Fame nominees at their convention in Omaha, Nebraska. Their 40th anniversary 3-day convention was held the first week of February 2023.
The organization is proud to have inducted Larry Preisser as one of their Hall of Fame
recipients. Larry was nominated by fellow harvester, Perry Hoffman, of Bowdle, South Dakota. Larry began custom harvesting in the summer of 1969, then worked for a farmer in western Kansas in the off season. He bought his first piece of land near Cunningham, Kansas, in 1976 while continuing to harvest wheat from Texas to North Dakota every year. Larry now stays close to home near Cunningham, harvesting and farming. You can view Larry’s Hall of Fame video at US Custom Harvester’s YouTube site.
The USCHI Harvester Hall of Fame was established in 1999 as an effort to properly recognize the pioneers of the United States custom harvesting industry.
To be inducted into the U.S. Custom Harvesters Hall of Fame, the nominee is evaluated by the board of directors. The board selects only those candidates they feel honor the organization and are held in high esteem by the membership at large. Candidates are recognized by their service to the organization, numbers of years in the harvesting business, and support to the harvesting industry.
