  • We're thankful for Fast Company recognizing our great CEO, Beth Ford, as one of the best leaders of 2018!

    These are the best and worst leaders of 2018

    Events across the U.S. and worldwide prove that 2018 was filled with object lessons in leadership. We witnessed trailblazing legislators, executives, and even groups of young people push boundaries as they fought to advance social justice and give voice to the underrepresented. And as in other years, we also witnessed many leaders struggle amid controversy.

  • 1925: First business "news pamphlet" for cooperative members.

    1927: First member-focused radio program on WCCO Radio.

    Podcast: Be a part of Something Greater

    Subscribe to the new Land O'Lakes, Inc. podcast We're charting new territory while focusing on the founding principal of our company: Serving the needs of our member-owners. Land O'Lakes, Inc. is launching a new podcast series called "Something Greater," which will be sent out monthly via the Connections newsletter.

  • From the Midwest to East Africa, data and innovative digital solutions are helping farmers assess their options.

    Wanted: Informed decisions

    Some of us see the world in black and white. Joel Wipperfurth sees the world in heat maps. Well, the farming world at least. He remembers when his brain started thinking this way. It was over 10 years ago as an agronomy intern in southern Minnesota with the Land O'Lakes, Inc.

  • Commentary from Land O'Lakes, Inc. Chief Technology Officer: Ag tech is taking off, and we all benefit.

  • What the food on our plates looks like is only one part of the equation.

    Revolutionizing the food chain

    It's impossible to discuss the future of food without addressing three important facts: Our population is growing, our production land is not growing and the climate is changing. Often when we think about the future, our minds go to exciting high-tech innovations in food production.

  • The story of a Land O'Lakes leader who learned a very tough -- but lasting -- lesson about resilience.

    Leadership through grit, heart and optimism:

    When Land O'Lakes, Inc. employee Kellie Melton was growing up, she thought she would never leave Colorado. But one college degree, a college job fair and a conversation with a Purina recruiter later, she was boarding a plane to St. Louis for a job interview.

  • How do you do more (and more), with less (and less)?

    The 10-billion person question

    More mouths to feed. More food to be grown. Less land in production. Less room for error. Less. How do you do more (and more), with less (and less)? As a farmer-owned cooperative with a farm-to-fork view of the entire agricultural system, this is a question we at Land O'Lakes ask and answer every day.

  • This Land O'Lakes employee chose to be a people leader.

    Leadership through belief in people

    For years, Land O'Lakes, Inc. has worked to challenge stereotypes. Take the farmer, for instance. Many people picture an old man who wears overalls, milks cows by hand and is stoic at the dinner table. That's not true at all. When you think of a plant manager, what do you see?

  • The Land O'Lakes Global Food Challenge is giving the next generation the tools to make a lasting difference.

    College students: Consider saving the world

    It's sitting down with a member of congress and discussing global issues. It's developing a new scientific formula. It's creating efficiencies for a product to be made faster and safer. It's your boots on the ground, in the dirt and soil, in the lab, or in the classroom. And it's all agriculture.
