Local winners


Local winners Dale and Joan Griffith from Norquay, Saskatchewan.

When the World Ag Expo got underway in Tulare, Calif. last month, a few lucky growers experienced it first-hand thanks to Parrish & Heimbecker.

By booking seed and crop protection with Parrish & Heimbecker, growers in Manitoba, Alberta and Saskatchewan were entered in the Canola Rewards contest. Winners from each region received airfare, hotel, entrance to the World Ag Expo and much more.

The World Ag Expo provided a unique chance to take in the Golden State. “The Expo was surrounded by a different form of agriculture than we’re used to — vineyards, olives, oranges, lemons, and almonds,” said John Devos, Manager, Seed and Crop Protection at Parrish & Heimbecker.

For Parrish & Heimbecker, the contest was about giving back to their customers. “We have the utmost respect and appreciation for our customers. Parrish & Heimbecker has been around for 104 years now — we do business from the ground up,” said Devos. “The emphasis is on meeting customer needs and working for our customers.”

Parrish and Heimbecker, Limited is a private, family-owned business, founded in 1909. It is involved in many aspects of agri-business including grain procurement and merchandising, milling, animal nutrition programs, poultry farming and food processing.
