Case Studies Agriculture

Kip Williams – R&C Welding Fabrication Trucking & Crane

You might say they’re generalists who approach any project with a specialist’s touch. For that’s the best way—maybe the only way—for such a heavily capitalized company to operate on the vast heartland  plains as well as in the Rocky Mountain states. Work may not be plentiful at any given time, but when a project arises, […]

Masson Farms of New Mexico

When was the last time anyone looked for name brand flowers at the grocery store? According to Mark Salgado, sales and distribution manager for Masson Farms of New Mexico, the answer is pretty much, never. In the retail flower sector, name brands carry less clout than beautiful, healthy flowers that won’t wilt on the kitchen […]

Zac Brubaker – Marydel Ag Supply

In Delaware, poultry integrators, who process and distribute chickens, make a big investment when they entrust local farmers to raise their birds. It’s not an easy task for the local farmers, either, requiring, among other things, that their facilities meet the latest regulations and trends—and that’s the territory of Marydel Ag Supply. The young company […]

Brett Marek – Marek Ag

The size of the Lone Star State not withstanding, word can travel fast. Especially in the agricultural industry, where farmers learn early which contractors and builders they can rely upon for the equipment and services so necessary to enable their high-stakes, potentially high-reward operations. It’s a fact of Texas life that Brett Marek grew accustomed […]

Brad Heimerl – Heimerl Farms

Brad Heimerl shakes his head at the idea that even some neighbors of his family’s farm in central Ohio might think that pork chops and bacon come from Kroger. But if that’s their perception, then the 32-year-old swine production manager at Heimerl Farms figures he must be doing something right. Mainly managing the very sensitive […]

King Construction

The King brothers, John, Elmer and Merv, grew up on a farm in Ronks, Pennsylvania, where they learned to build with wood and nails rather than LEGOs. Since childhood, all three have been obsessed with craftsmanship, a passion that led them to become carpenters and form King Construction in 1978. Forty years later, King Construction […]

Travis Taylor – Pinnacle Premix

Today’s eggs come from chickens that consume premixes packed with vitamins, minerals, amino acids, microbials, nucleotides, nutraceuticals and other ingredients that are essential for healthy egg production. In other words, most eggs have origins that can be traced back to businesses like Pinnacle Premix—a company that provides nutrient systems for numerous types and species of […]

Fusion Ag Solutions

Agriculture is often about delayed gratification—hard work, attention to precise measurements and yields that can’t always be predicted or controlled, all contributing to long-awaited harvests.  But plenty of contractors serving commercial growers take a shortsighted approach to the placement and installation of their farming infrastructure. Equipment like feed mills, grain elevators and grain bins are […]

Milis Flatwork

The Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board says that at last look, the dairy industry was bringing in over $43 billion to the state’s economy, with much of the credit due to the almost 1.3 million cows on 9,520 licensed dairy farms. On average, each of those prolific bovines produces 2,739 gallons of milk a year—and, of […]

Dacotah Grain Systems

Drive through the Midwest’s vast farmland and you’ll see massive metal structures rising from the horizon, their industrial appearance contrasting against the natural landscape. These are large, commercial grain systems, and at the heart of each are grain bins—vented, silver, corrugated steel structures that store dry grains, typically corn and soybeans. According to the National […]
