Sarah and Ronnie Mohr were married in 1969. They’ve spent nearly five decades raising a family, building a farm and supporting agriculture everywhere they go.
2 FARMS IN 1
The M in the circle on Ronnie Mohr’s farm gate is appropriate. He and Sarah are part of two farming entities: R&S Mohr Family Farms Inc. and Circle M Farms LLC. The latter entity includes their sons.
EXPANDED GRAIN CENTER
The Mohrs recently updated their grain handling facility so they could handle more grain more efficiently and faster.
This new grain dryer is the heart of their grain handling system, Ronnie says. It eliminates the dryer as a possible bottleneck at harvest while offering more economic efficiency.
READY TO GO
Thanks to a modern shop, the Mohrs have equipment ready to roll long before it’s time to go to the field, Ronnie says. Unfortunately, like most people, it was a long wait for them this spring. They practice minimum tillage on most of their acres.
This building houses the farm shop on the north end to the left and an office and headquarters for a seed business on the south end. Ronnie and Sarah’s son Eric and his wife, Lisa, operate a Beck’s seed dealership.
MORE THAN AN OFFICE
This area inside the office and seed sales building provides space to both work and meet with other people, Ronnie says. It can also be a place to relax in between tasks.
EFFICIENT CROP MANAGERS
The Mohrs’ method of choice for nitrogen application in corn is anhydrous ammonia in the spring. Ronnie and his family have worked with The Farm Clinic based near Lafayette for soil testing and phosphorus and potassium recommendations since the mid-1970s.
Both Ronnie and Sarah have served in various leadership roles. Not too many farming couples can say they both have been chairman of their local soil and water conservation district at one time or another.
