Local Farmer, and Woofter Construction Customer, Featured in The Wall Street Journal

Local Farmer, and Woofter Construction Customer, Featured in The Wall Street Journal

The doors to Woofter Construction & Irrigation opened in 1978. That means for nearly forty years, we’ve been dedicated to helping farmers and business owners find solutions that keep their operations running smoothly, allowing them to grow and thrive.

One of those farmers, Lon Frahm, located in Colby, KS, was recently featured in a Wall Street Journal article. Woofter Construction is proud to have played a part in Lon’s farming operation, having furnished his grain storage bins.

In the video that accompanies the WSJ article, Mr. Frahm mentions his grain storage system, pointing out that two of his grain storage bins hold 600,000 bushels each and the two new ones hold 385,000 bushels each. In the video, he shared that a lot of his competitive advantage is the grain system, which enables them to also function as elevators.
