As landowners ourselves,we understand the challenges of owning a farm. As farmers, we also understand how the business of agriculture is an ever-changing profession. In today’s world, there is more to think about than just putting a seed in the ground. As a modern farm operation, we face many challenges including volatility of input prices and grain markets.
Our goal is to minimize risk by ensuring top yields and maximize revenue potential by strategic market planning and observation. We use Variable Rate Technology to spread our fertilizer, lime, and chemicals as well as Global Positioning Satellites and Auto-Trac Technology to ensure consistency and reduce fuel and seed costs. Agriculture touches everyone from clothing and food to fuel.
