“We’re very excited to be serving the growers and dealers in the Ada, Minnesota area with Bulk Seed and treating capacity,” says Terry Schultz, owner and president of Mustang Seeds. “Being in Ada is going to be a big benefit to our dealers and will enhance our services and convenience to the customers around the area.”
