LEAF RIVER AGRICULTURAL SERVICES
Leaf River Ag Service is a locally owned and operated Co-op. They are a full service Co-op located in central Minnesota with locations in Wadena, Bluffton and Dent.
Leaf River Ag. offers a variety of products from bird and pet food to all crop production inputs, home heating, delivery of fuel and propane and the manufacturing of a full line of livestock feeds, and a supplier of livestock equipment.
Rob Robinson, chief executive officer of Rob-See-Co based in Elkhorn, Nebraska, said the seed company is bound and determined to retain one aspect of an ever-changing seed industry forever — strong relationships with farmers and ranchers.
Those relationships began in 1888, when Robinson’s great-grandfather migrated from New York to Nebraska to start the J.C. Robinson Seed Co. That company would evolve to become one of hundreds of seed companies that sprung up across the nation, offering hybrid corn and other products to farmers for the first time. The family’s business history includes the seed brands Funk’s G and Golden Harvest, which was sold to Syngenta in 2004.
