DLF’s La Crosse Seed Acquires Wisconsin Seed Company


La Crosse Seed, a DLF USA Inc. division, announced the acquisition of Deer Creek Seed, Inc. Founded by Bill and Bonnie Leakey and headquartered in Windsor, Wis., Deer Creek Seed has provided customers of forage, turf, cover crop and food crop services since 1980, according to a release.

“We are thrilled to welcome the Deer Creek Seed team and its customers,” said Dan Foor, senior vice president, distribution at DLF’s North America business. “We are excited to build upon the great success the people of Deer Creek Seed have had, and to leverage that success into expanded product and service offerings for both our shared and new customers.”

“It has been my and Bonnie’s life’s work to create a sustainable business focused on providing high quality seed products to our customers. We could not have found a better partner than La Crosse Seed to help carry on that tradition,” shared Bill Leakey.

Deer Creek’s facilities in Ashland, Wis., Madison, Wis. and Effingham, Ill. will continue to operate following the acquisition. The company’s staff will also maintain their current roles within Deer Creek Seed to promote long-term success and high-level service for customers.
