"It's important to think about the future Coming from three generations of farmers, Rob Randall, who farms approximately six miles northeast Ortonville has learned more than a few things about the farming business. Rob's parents have been on the same place since the 1940's, and Rob and wife Kathy purchased it from them when they retired and moved to Ortonville in 1978. 'q was always interested in farming, but never felt I could get started," he said. I had the chance when my father retired. I was born and raised on the home place like most people out here, so I decided to go ahead with it."

Besides corn, beans and some wheat, he has also raised some "We had a operation Kathy, who gre grain farm two kids in things to spread a little get rid of it. The' livestock now."
