Primghar, Iowa, March 19, 2020 – Brett and Sheila Peelen are the new owners of the former O’Brien County Ag Supply building located at 320 South Hayes in Primghar. The building will be used to house 5th Gen Ag, a business that Brett purchased in March of 2019 from Ag Partners of Calumet. 5thGen Ag sells Ag Leader, Precision Planting and several smaller lines of precision ag products and covers sixteen plus counties in Northwest Iowa with sales and service. Brett plans to make office, inventory and eventual shop space in this building and is happy it will be more centrally located for his business territory.
