CFS Irrigation Supply and Service Goal
Provide leadership and support to meet the future needs and enhance the profitability of the agricultural industry through the development and implementation of innovative management systems.
CFS business operations is tailored to each individual client, there are many variables that need to be taken into account prior to any equipment fabrication or service. Our company researches the farms size and land in proportion to the number of livestock they have, and accounts for future plans for expansion and growth. With the initial information we are able to begin developing a plan for how their manure needs to be managed and assess what equipment will best provide the desired service for the individual farm now and in the future. When a base plan has been formulated, the project is presented to the owners and with target employees on the farm, in order to understand the farms daily protocol, which ensures that once implemented that all parties are prepared and comfortable with the change of the management systems.
Professional Support and Advisors
Cayuga County is heavily populated with dairies and the individual farms network together when making decisions, and they formed a group called the Cayuga Marketing Group. This group of farms has known Stan since he was a youth. They all were aware of his potential as a business owner and what he would be capable of bringing to the Cayuga County area, so the group had collectively encouraged Stan to pursue his business goals. Stan continuously corresponds with this group for advice and knowledge.
Unique Attributes of CFS Irrigation Supply & Service
Cuff Farm Services is fortunate to have a team that continuously evolves with new ideas and technology. Being a dealer of several equipment manufacturers as well as our own, we are unique in the sense that we manufacture and install the equipment; in addition provide tutorials on how to operate the equipment. We delegate a team member to dedicate the time needed to the farmer until the equipment is being utilized 100% by the farm and does not require our professional assistance any further. Prior to CFS establishing our company here in Central New York, farms relied heavily on phone calls to dealers in hopes of learning how to operate equipment, which the response time was significant enough that the farms would attempt to operate the equipment with out proper training and end up frustrated. Stan had had plenty of experience with this while employed on a local farm. This was one of Stan’s priorities when he established his company, he did not want to leave the farmers in limbo and at that point assured each customer that along with their equipment purchase, a tutorial would be guaranteed. The service our company provides has made our reputation far exceeds others, and that has been a contributing factor to our success. Our support staff is reassuring to the farming community, and that paves the way for future business contacts. Stan has found that word of mouth is the best form of advertising in this industry, the key to success is hard work, confidence, knowledge, and most of all honesty.
Being established in the heart of Cayuga County, CFS has a facility that can house large pieces of equipment and inventory, as well as the space to fabricate and receive equipment.
Part of our operations is to take raw materials in which we build and fabricate into a functioning piece of equipment. We are successful in the production of our equipment, and have the capacity to deliver all of what is produced. CFS prides itself on utilizing existing raw materials and creating something new and functional; we are environmentally aware of our surroundings and intend to continuously erect new technology from recycled materials.
