Garden City—Kansas Governor Sam Brownback today presented Irsik & Doll Grain and Feed with a certificate of recognition for the company’s 50 years of serving Kansas farmers and ranchers. The company was founded in southwest Kansas, but now owns feedyards and grain elevators across the state, including locations in Emporia, Garden City, Ingalls, and Cimarron.
“I’m proud to recognize the faithful service that Irsik and Doll have provided to Kansas agriculture for the past 50 years. They have shown that Kansas is a great place to call home and great place to do business, not just over a few years, but over generations. Their business showcases the best that Kansas has to offer. Their community and the entire state could not be more proud of them, and we hope to be home to Irsik and Doll for the next 50 years,” said Governor Brownback.
Governor Brownback honored Irsik & Doll in Garden City while touring regions of southwest Kansas that have been hardest hit by drought conditions. Kansas Secretary of Commerce Pat George joined the Governor for the presentation.
“To last as long as Irsik and Doll has in business, you have to have a passion for serving your customers and a strong commitment to your community and state,” said Commerce Secretary Pat George. “I congratulate Irsik and Doll on 50 years of giving us the best they have to offer and more.”
Steve, Norbert and Clarence Irsik and Loren and Fred Doll started Irsik & Doll in 1961. The only surviving founder, Loren, accepted the Governor’s recognition on behalf of the company.
