Rieke is retiring as GM at Farmers Co-op of Hanska

Randall Rieke
Almost  30 years ago, Randall Rieke started his career with the Farmers Co-operative of Hanska in the feed department as a livestock production specialist handling feed resale. He is leaving the co-op on Oct. 17 after nearly 20 years as the general manager.
“Thirty years ago, every farm place had livestock,” he stated when asked what changes he’d seen during his career in the industry. “There became more contract finishing of hogs, some of the dairies went out in buy outs and some of the other guys got bigger.”
On the grain side, Rieke noted the change in the equipment over the years. “They went from four to eight rows – up to 24 to 36 rows [on a combine].”
The co-operative changed accordingly, to continue serving the needs of the producer – no matter what direction the farming operation took.
