legacy rich. future focused.

Boekelheide and Sons is a fourth-generation farming operation, growing corn and soybeans in the Northville area of Spink County. Alex Boekelheide is the latest member of his family to farm, working alongside his father Mark after graduating from Lake Area Tech. Precision agriculture has played an increasingly important role in their operation, especially over the last six years, with the additions of Ag Leader, and MZB from Agtegra.
 
“They’ve helped us take our operation to the next level,” Alex says. “On our farm, accuracy and precision are the top priorities, and they’re always on the cutting edge of technology. It’s not just what’s the latest and greatest, but what can genuinely help you improve your bottom line so we can do the best job we can across every acre.”
 
“One of the great things about working with the Agtegra precision ag team is that they’re always focused on trying to bring value to your operation,” Alex says. “They’re not just selling you a product. They’re looking for ways to help us be more successful. It’s nice having a team like that to work with. The support and the knowledge from the team at the Innovation Center are crucial for us to reach our goals.”
