Indiana agricultural company TruHorizons, with locations in Milford, La Paz and Bremen, has announced the hiring of Leland Hartstack as General Manager. Hartstack comes to TruHorizons from Zen-Noh Grain Corporation in Convent, La., where he managed a large barge and vessel facility. Prior to that, he worked as a merchandiser/trader, origination coordinator and region group manager with Consolidated Grain and Barge, Inc., and started his career in animal nutrition with Cargill.
Hartstack is a graduate of Texas A&M University with a bachelor science in Agriculture Economics. Steve Heiden, a retired 37-year Cargill employee with extensive background in logistics, merchandising, operations and management, had been serving as interim general manager.
TruHorizons is a joint venture of Trupointe Cooperative, Inc. and Cargill, Inc. that began operations in March. The agricultural company offers growers the products, services and resources needed from seed to harvest, such as soil sampling, nutrients, pest management, grain marketing, grain storage and more. A state-of-the-art agronomy facility is located in Milford, with grain elevators in Bremen and La Paz. A new 4.3-million bushel grain elevator is currently being built on the Milford site.
