“Is this an agricultural co-op or a tech company?”

 

This was a question recently posed by “60 Minutes” correspondent Lesley Stahl in a segment about Land O’Lakes, Inc. In a wide-ranging interview, Land O’Lakes CEO Beth Ford discussed the current state of farming and how Land O’Lakes works every day to help shape agriculture’s future.

 

As new talent with different skillsets joins the company, Land O’Lakes has the ability to tackle the challenges of farming in breakthrough ways. For example, Land O’Lakes uses sophisticated ag technology tools including predictive models and computer mapping that let farmers know how many seeds to plant and how much fertilizer to apply…down to the microacre. All with an eye toward helping its farmer members optimize their economic potential and be more sustainable.
