It has been said that farmers have to be part agronomist, conservationist, meteorologist and economist. But for many, farming is not their single career choice. Some may be teachers, engineers or business people. At MKC, we strive to provide the services needed to make a farming operation as simple as possible.
“We understand how limited and valuable time is for our business partners,” says Steve Peterson, Director of Northern Area Operations for MKC. “It’s our goal to pre-plan with customers to be accessible when needed and to create and provide services, labor and expertise that fulfills their needs.”Once seen as a temporary response to the Great Depression, off-the-farm employment is now regarded as a regular feature of farming communities. According to the United States Department of Agriculture, more than half of the farm operators in the United States now work off the farm.
