Dakotaland Feeds, LLC. based in Huron S.D. purchased Circle K Feed and Grain Inc. located in Glen Ullin on Aug.19 for an undisclosed amount. The facility is a feed manufacturing facility and grain elevator.

“We are excited about adding the Glen Ullin location because Circle K has been successful in servicing area producers out of that location for 27 years. We also look forward to having easier access to a new market,” said Jarvis Haugeberg, General Manager Dakotaland Feeds, LLC.

Tuesday morning the North Dakota Public Service Commission approved a request from Circle K Feed and Grain, Inc. to discontinue business. Minutes later a new licensing application turned in by Dakotaland Feeds, LLC was approved, said Sue Richter, Licensing Division Director for North Dakota Public Service Commission.

“I have known Jarvis for 20+ years, said Clyde Krebs, former Manager of Circle K Feed and Grain Inc said.

“Interestingly enough we were both past presidents of the North Dakota Grain Dealers Association,” Haugeberg said.

“Dakotaland Feeds had been looking for a presence in the feed business in western North Dakota, coincidentally I had been looking for a plan of succession for my business at the same time, we just lucked out and here were are,” Krebs said.

“I expect that little will change in how the business is run,” said Krebs. “Existing staff will remain at the business including myself as I have agreed to remain as manager of the facility until my retirement. Dakotaland Feeds has no plans to discontinue any of the existing products or services. They do however; plan to bring some new services to the business and expand the product line.”

“The core business at the facility has been and will continue to be manufacturing and distributing feed products for livestock. We will continue the grain and agronomy business, however, as well,” Haugeberg said. “We are planning on adding a person to our staff to travel the area and provide on site service for our customers in the future.”

“We hope to continue Circle K Feed and Grain Inc.’s tradition of excellent service and quality feed at competitive prices. We will uphold their reputation of being fair business men and women and good neighbors,” Haugeberg said.
