Deer Trail Implement merges to form PrairieLand Partners

Deer Trail Implement has joined Conrady Western and Pankratz Implement to form a new company named PrairieLand Partners, Inc.

After more than a year of planning, these three dealerships have come together to form a strong business which is capable of meeting future challenges.

According to a letter from Doug Neufield, general manager of Deer Trail Implement, the new company will be able to serve all customer segments in central Kansas with larger selections of equipment, greater access to parts inventory, increased technology support, and the most qualified service support available in the industry today.

PrairieLand Partners will have John Deere dealerships in eight locations: McPherson, Marion, Emporia, Hutchinson, Anthony, Winfield, west Wichita, and east Wichita.

Increased work force flexibility along with strong management will enable the company to provide unsurpassed support for all customers in these areas.

Name changes will occur on buildings and support vehicles during the month of February.

"The faces of our employees will remain the same and our commitment to our valued customers will not change," Neufeld assured farmers.
