About the Host Farm

Loran Steinlage is the Owner/Operator of FLOLO farms in West Union, Iowa. Loran, along with his wife Brenda, specializes in adapting practices and equipment to our unique area on the edge of the driftless area. The Steinlages are evolving to a companion/relay no-till cropping system which is focused on cycling plants to keep a living plant in the soil at all times, to help aid in moisture management and weed suppression. He is currently producing corn, soybeans, cereal rye, winter wheat, malt barley and buckwheat. Loran recently took on a role with DAWN Equipment/Underground Ag as an Infield Practical Field Engineer.
