To our valued customers;

We are excited to announce that as of March 3, 2021 Heartland AG Systems has purchased Ag-West Distributing, headquartered in Burley, Idaho. This expansion grows our territory to service 17 states in total, with the additions of Idaho, Montana, Washington, Utah, Nevada, Wyoming and Oregon.

While this is an exciting development, we would like to emphasize that day-to-day business will not change. Ag-West will be integrated into the broader Heartland AG Systems name. As the busy season approaches, we remain committed to continuing our application-focused services with no interruption.

About the Companies:

Ag-West Distributing shares the same commitment that Heartland AG Systems does to the application business. Since it was founded in 1986 by Don Knopp and Mike Nelson, Ag-West has grown from one location to three, and services customers across seven states. The company offers a complete line of fertilizer and spray equipment, and are the Northwest’s exclusive dealer of Case IH application equipment.

Heartland AG Systems is the most focused dealership in the industry. Since 1965, we have been committed to one thing: our customer’s application business. In 2019, Heartland Ag and AG Systems merged to form the largest Case IH commercial application dealership in North America. Today, Heartland AG Systems has more employees focused on the application business than any other dealer. They are the largest Case IH commercial application distributor in North America. In addition to selling a complete line of application equipment, for more than 50 years, we have also been manufacturers themselves. Heartland AG Systems Equipment offers industry-leading application support products including tenders, spreaders, liquid trailers, applicators, and parts.

Both companies have been successful and experienced growth in recent years, investing in people, technologies and facilities. We intend to continue to adapt and meet the needs of our customers as the industry trends change.

Benefits of the Acquisition:
  • Increased inventory of application equipment, parts and support products.
  • A growing number of application-focused experts ready to serve you.
  • The best opportunities to assist you in covering as many acres as possible for your customers

We look forward to our continued partnership and opportunity to provide you with the solutions to your continued success. If you have any questions, please call our Hutchinson office at 320-587-4030
