Case Studies Agriculture

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 […]

Dragon-Line

In a landscape dominated by fields of corn, soy, milo and hay, the rolling plains of Kansas are a classic example of America’s Breadbasket at work. Yet Monty Teeter, CEO and founder of Teeter Irrigation Inc., says the real source of the state’s economy is hundreds of feet below the ground in the form 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 […]

Hanby Farms Inc.

The proof is in the photo, Ron Seitz tells Terra Firma in January. Control, a much-loved thoroughbred in Frazeysburg, Ohio, was losing weight and going wobbly despite his owner, Pat Bringardner-Lang, sparing no expense and effort to keep him healthy after his racing days ended. So in early 2017 Bringardner-Lang paid a visit to Hanby […]

Hord Family Farms

Phillip Hord has always been involved with his family’s farm at “the slat level.” It’s a turn of phrase his family uses in reference to slats of a barn floor, and it means “what’s going on at our farm from a day-to-day basis,” says Hord. Hord is in the fifth generation of his family to […]

Interstate Commodities Inc.

Family-owned and -operated Interstate Commodities Inc. (ICI) has been serving the feed industry since 1947. Victor Oberting Sr. established the business after a long tenure with the Seagram’s whiskey facility in Lawrenceburg, Indiana. Seeing an opportunity in the feed industry, he began purchasing distillery grains and selling to the feed industry in the eastern U.S. […]

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 […]

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, […]

M-Mig Construction

In the world of dairy and agricultural construction, there’s a growing knowledge gap. In many cases, fourth-generation farmers are running farms built by past generations, so they haven’t had to build much from the ground up. As a result, they’ve had less experience pulling shingles, running pipe and pouring concrete. In other instances, the next […]
