USSEC Adds Two New Members


USSEC’s board of directors voted to add two new members to its rolls at its December 13 board meeting. USSEC welcomes Liberty Feed and Bean Meal and Citizens Elevator, LLC as its newest members.
Liberty Feed and Bean Meal, a family-owned farm business located in Shelbyville, Indiana, approximately 27 miles east of Indianapolis, describes itself as “The Midwest’s Premier Supplier of Non-GMO Feeds and Bean Meal.” The feed company started in response to the local need for healthier beef, chicken, pork, eggs, and milk.
Today, Liberty continues the tradition of helping local families and farmers keep healthy livestock by supplying non-GMO feed, made with roasted corn and bean meal, to farmers throughout the Great Lakes region.
Citizens Elevator, LLC, of Charlotte, Michigan, is a full service ag retailer with a complete line of crop protection products, liquid and dry fertilizer, lime and custom application. They employ four certified crop advisors and offer GPS soil testing services. The outfit sells corn, soybeans, non-GMO food grade soybeans, and wheat seed.
Robert Mansfield has owned Citizens Elevator since December 31, 1988. Over the next 15 years, Citizens would expand from one location to five. The company has gone on to employ more than 30 people and serve more than 300 farmers stretching throughout Central Michigan and into Ohio and Indiana.
Citizens Elevator’s services have expanded to include trucking, overseas container hauling, custom application, GPS and soil sampling, fertilizer spreading, custom seed treating, along with chemicals, fertilizer, seed and internationally marketed specialty soybeans.
