Here's what a few have to say about their experience with us...
"We wouldn't trust anyone else with the environmental requirements for our hog sites, or for our GPS grid soil sampling. They're no-nonsense, give us what we need, and they do what they say they'll do, every time."
Mike McCartney, Hubbard, IA
"They help us make valuable fertilizer decisions. We like their recommendations, because they're independent and they're based on the soil tests and our yield goals. Very professional but easy to communicate with."
Brad Feckers, Shell Rock, IA
"We use them for all our soil sampling. They provide all the information and files needed to make decisions for variable rate fertilizer. They also write our manure plan, sample our pit, and get us application rates and field maps so we have everything we need since we have our own tanks and haul our own manure. Also, they got us over all the hurdles with the county and DNR for getting another hog barn permitted and built. We've been working with them for many years, and plan to work with them for many more."
Brock and Ben Ferris, Iowa Falls, IA
"They keep us in good standing with the DNR, writing and filing the manure management plans for our hog sites, and doing our soil sampling. They've got a process that works well, especially their manure application handbooks, reports, and records. They also took care of all the regulatory requirements for us when we expanded one of our sites. They're a top-notch outfit."
Bart Borg, Forest City, IA
"Since we have our own tanks, we like how they get us everything we need for manure application. We know we're covered if there's ever a problem, and they make sure we have all the records we need on file. They also do a great job with our manure plans. We don't have time for all the paperwork or for trying to keep up with regulations, so it's good to work with someone who knows what they're doing."
Brett Handsaker, Radcliffe, IA
"We know our manure plan is in good hands with them. They also sample and test our pits so our haulers know the legal rate, and they keep up our application records. They keep our grid soil sampling current and give us independent fertility recs and the spread files needed for any variable rate we want to do. Their service is exceptional."
Corey Jacobsen, Dows, IA
"They make sure all our fields have current soil samples for manure plans. They remind us what's due, we confirm, and they get the sampling done, always in a timely manner. It's one less thing we have to worry about, knowing they've got it handled."
Ted Junker, New Hartford, IA
"They take good care of the environmental requirements for our hog site, including writing the manure plan, pit sampling, and application handbook and record-keeping. They also do our soil sampling and work with us on fertilizer recs. They're independent, which is important to us. We like to know who we're working with, and that it's someone we can trust."
Mitch Meyer, Iowa Falls, IA
"We are continually looking for independent companies to work with, and ways to unbundle inputs and services. That goes for grid sampling and fertilizer recs. They fit perfectly in our operation, not only because they're independent, but because they get their work done. If they didn't, we wouldn't use them."
Randy Christensen, Scranton, IA
"They've been doing the DNR plans for our hog site and livestock truck wash for years. When we decided to expand our truck wash they took care of all the requirements. They even brought their own engineer into the project who was sensible and affordable, and understood what we were trying to do. We've got our hands plenty full so at least we don't have to worry about environmental regulations."
Jason Reinke, Geneva, IA
"They helped us get our manure management plan through all the tricky DNR requirements, and also took care of all the forms and paperwork for our dairy expansion. We hired them to take care of the regulatory part of our operation, but what we are really paying them for is peace of mind. We're glad we found them!"
Resy and Eduard Reuling, Clarksville, IA
"When it came time to build another barn, they got the DNR and county everything that was needed, and also worked closely with our builder to keep everything on track. They've done an excellent job with the manure plans for our other hog sites, and we're very pleased with how they handled all the paperwork and approval for our new construction, as well."
Michael DeBerg, Ackley, IA
"The grid sampling reports we get back from them really help with variable rate fertilizer, so we know better what we need and where we need it on our farms. That's becoming more and more important as we watch our bottom line."
Kenny and Kevin Meester, Parkersburg, IA
"Their service really paid during our hog site inspection. They keep complete and 100% digital records of our manure management plan and application records, which the DNR reviewed ahead of time, so the site visit was really just a formality. They even prepped us well on what to expect. They're real pros to work with and have taken a whole lot of work off our plate."
Chet Hollingshead, Ogden, IA
