The AGF Front Page News

It is a very sad day at Atkinson Grain today.
We have just heard that Joe Buysse has passed away today, Nov 29, at around 11:00 am.
Joe was instrumental in making our seed division successful and headed that division until
his retirement this year in July.
He was a great guy that will be missed by everyone that was lucky enough to know him.
Our AGF family would like to send our heartfelt condolences out to Joe's family in this difficult time.
