Or maybe it hasn't happened as we weren't informed as to what this calamitous event was so maybe it hasn't happened yet, and things are only going to get worse than a average tractor manufacturer buying out a slightly above average grass kit manufacturer. But maybe the master will let us know so we can rest easy in our beds a night and we will have been put out of our misery.

It is unlikely that they would continue to buy round balers off a subsidiary of Kubota, especially since they were, in my humble opinion, second rate products anyway.
As you know, this is no surprise to me, but why go to the expense just for balers that were great ten to fifteen years ago when they were known as Welger? They will never make a dent in McHale sales or even in Kuhn sales and nobody trusts AGCO to continue to invest and support implements long term. They just don't. Since the early 1980's they have chopped and changed implements at the drop of a hat, especially balers.

Would it not be far more productive to cut their margins on tractors to make them more competitive in order to keep their primary product's factory running at near full capacity than play around with inevitably slow selling balers? Just asking.
The Arctic cat quad bikes were a flash in the pan too
