Wendell Owens, a longtime farmer/dairyman, co-founded International Ag Labs with Dr. Dan Skow. The Minnesota-based consulting group boasts clients worldwide growing cropsy as diverse as fruits and vegetables, kiwi, grapes, apples, the mainline crops of corn, wheat, soybeans, alfalfa, and many exotics. He changed his farming ways in the early 1980s when conventional farming practices were killing fields, dropping yields, and leading him to ruin. He not only changed his own practices but now works with growers managing far in excess of 1,000,000 acres. He and his family manage a 400-acre farm, some organic, in south-central Minnesota raising corn, soybeans and alfalfa.
