Announcing the opening of our new state of the art grain facility in Atkinson. We will be fully operational by August of 1968 and capable of handling all of your grain, feed, and fertilizer needs. We are thinking of chopping that big tree down for added parking, altho it is a very cool and very giant cottonwood tree. Also we plan to switch to Kent feeds in 2002 and add a Pioneer Seed dealership in or around the turn of the millenium!! If you look REAL close you can see Bob and Danny hanging out there on the west side of the office, that's probably Ron thompson walking from the office to the elevator,  Tim wouldn't arrive full time until 78, and does anybody know who's grain truck that is???? This picture was probably taken in the early 70's....FLASHBACK!!! 

Whoa, I just checked and somebody is running away with the AGF Moletrapping Extravaganza this year!! Just when I thought maybe we had cleaned out the mole population of Henry County along comes a young whippersnaper that  is catchin' moles like crazy!! Jonathan "Mole Sniffer" VanDike is sniffin' em out and reelin' em in!!! He's got a huge lead that , right now, is looking insurmountable!!

Look for "AGF BIG Ice Bucket Challenge" on You Tube for the video of this glorious event for charity....or click on this link...http//        George Carlin

Come on people!!!  I just updated the  AGF MOLE REPORT 2014 with all the moles we've had delivered for weigh in and , seriously!! , you people have got to try a little harder here!!! We've got 5 1/2 moles entered....for the whole year!!!   We are definately NOT putting our FULL EFFORT into the trapping contest  this year, so let's get out there people....get trapping!!!!!

****Fact or Crap !!!...Since Tari was age 12 moles have eaten over 3 million acres of pizza...Fact or Crap???.... 

If anyone has any information about any of the subjects that are under discussion on this or any other website or any newspaper or TV show or conversations between you and AGF employees or customers or anyone else that you might have talked to about anything, like moles or can email me at you...
(About half of the comments made on these headlines have about a 50-50 chance of being true and usually don't reflect the opinionated opinions of Atkinson Grain or most of its employees!
