ADEL, Iowa — August 10, 2011 — Stine Seed Company is sponsoring the Generating Success conference, hosted by Successful Farming magazine, being held August 11–12 in West Des Moines, Iowa. About 200 attendees are expected at the conference that is designed to help farm families be more productive, profitable and achieve greater satisfaction in their agricultural businesses.
Professional speaker, author and family business consultant Jolene
Brown, CSP, will lead the conference. She has more than 20 years of experience
working with farm families, and will provide take-home tools to improve
management, leadership and transition of the family business. Professional agriculture
business advisor, Don Jonovic, Ph.D., will also speak at the conference. He has
counseled business owners about growth and ownership transition since 1973.
Stine, a privately-held, independently-owned business,
understands first-hand the importance of management and transition planning.
Stine believes that a successful family business transcends multiple decades

“Stine feels it is important to sponsor the Generating Success
conference because we recognize the importance of having management and
transition plans in place to ensure assets remain intact and businesses
continue to operate profitably,” says Vice President of Sales Myron Stine. “We
believe it is important for everyone in the industry to share their knowledge
with the next generation of agriculture leaders.”
