The last 2 years we have had a blast at the annual fourth of July parade in West Bend. These are the themes we used each year. This year we will be cranking out a new theme with a new name.. LG seeds!! Stay tuned for a new page as well to kick off a new beginning. Any guesses on this years theme? We are going to have fun! Jess.

Bright future coming..getting closer!

Bright future coming..getting closer!

Pictures like this remind us that in a few short months, five great seed brands will join forces to form the NEW LG Seeds. This means our customers will get the same great seed, the same great genetics and the same great service they've always relied on, plus new tools and technology and a powerful team, to maximize success from field to yield.

An early reminder to all my customers of the exciting changes coming July 1!

Yesterday I had a somewhat humbling experience I want to share. Had a call a while ago from a customer that had bad wind damage on his Great Lakes corn. No one ever likes to get that phone call no matter what company or product you sell. So we go to take a look about 10 days after the damage happened, and as we get to the field, I will say it is probably the worst overall field of wind damage I have seen, reaaallllyy BAD! Takes all your pride in making a sale and the product you sell and flushes it down the toilet. Everything seemed fine with how the operator managed his part, the roots were good, the stalks were awesome but apparently this area experienced a pre hurricane Harvey! Meeting and discussing these things with the farmer, he was really calm and collected and not irate and pointing fingers at ANYONE. I have had less damage and been treated worse, but I want to give a shout out to Doug Miller for his understanding that sometimes mother nature has all control of what we do in this occupation! He treated us as professionally as could be expected under the circumstances, and even put in his early order for 2018! I want to personally thank you Doug Miller for being a customer, friend and fellow farmer, the way you reacted to the situation was amazing to me, and makes me proud to have customers like yourself... Thanks - Jess Welter GLH DealerW296

Yuck! The heat is ON across the center of the U.S. If the heat alone wasn’t bad enough, just look at this dew point in Shenandoah, IA early this afternoon 81F! That’s making the 91F reported at 2pm local time feel more like 110F! The heat wave is underway and will continue for the next few days, expanding into the East beginning tomorrow. There will be a brief break in the extreme heat later in the weekend for the central U.S., but the hot weather comes roaring back next week.

If you can avoid being outside, please do, if not, try doing outdoor activities early in the day or late in the evening to avoid the hottest parts of the day. Make sure to stay well hydrated (remember your pets!) and check up on elderly friends and relatives as they can be especially susceptible to the heat. And ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS check that back seat! Never leave children or pets in a hot car.

Stay cool and just think, the first day of Fall is only 2 months away

The Heartland is going to bake again this week leading up to Father's Day with middle 90F to low 100F temperatures. This will have a big negative impact on crops with temperatues the hottest in over 25 years, some record 121year heat and driest in 11 to 21 years.

The coasts are the other extreme with Oregon trending the coolest in 6 years and wet while Virgina is the coolest in 17 years. This is a sign of things to come as this heat will become widespread in July across much of the U.S.

To see how hot you'll get in the 14-days ahead visit or our charts page format

Hope you have a great Tuesday folks! - Capt Kirk out.
