Rich Hanson recognized at retirement coffee

Rich Hanson - MaxYield Cooperative

Rich Hanson will have more time for the barbeque. He celebrated his last day at MaxYield August 31st, before retiring after many year’s in the agriculture industry.

Family, friends and co-workers gathered at MaxYield’s Algona location Friday, August 31st to honor long-time team member Rich Hanson.

Hanson spent over 37 years in agri-business and now looks forward to spending more time with his grandson.

It goes without saying that Hanson has seen a lot of change during his career. “I remember farmers bringing metal five-gallon buckets to town to pick up LASSO, which was shipped to the co-op in 55-gallon drums,” he said. Many modern herbicides are applied in fractions of an ounce per acre.

MaxYield extends a big thank you for his dedicated service and wish him well in retirement.
