- Year Founded:
Ag-Bag Corporation was founded by a group of five Agri-Businessmen who owned and operated Cattle Ranches, Dairies and Feed Mill operations as well as a manufacturing business. These five entrepreneurial men had experience with a concept that was started in Germany in the 1970's. They liked the concept of silage bagging and were very impressed with the quality of the feed. The group soon discovered the German system was too small and too slow for the U.S. market and visited the German manufacturer to request some modifications for the U.S. market. They were told “no” the machine came in one size and one style only.
The concept worked well and the quality of feed was exceptional so the five investors made a decision to form their own company. Ag-Bag International was formed in 1978. Many changes were made to the machines to adapt to the U.S. market and Ag-Bag applied for their own patents. In 1989 the company acquired the patents and purchased the business of a former competitor, Silopress.
Starting in a small trailer house on a founder's dairy in 1978, Ag-Bag quickly moved progressively thru three other larger facilities. In January of 1990 Ag-Bag moved into a new 30,000 square foot facility in Warrenton, Oregon.
Ag-Bag also had a plant in Blair , Nebraska which assembled the baggers going to the Midwest and East coast as well as warehousing the silage bags. In the fall of 1996, the Blair, Nebraska personnel moved into a 70,000 square foot facility.
In late 2004 the assets of Ag-Bag were purchased by Miller-St. Nazianz, Incorporated in Wisconsin . Miller-St. Nazianz has been in business for over 110 years serving Agriculture, Worldwide. They currently provide equipment for forage harvesting and crop application technologies.
Ag-Bag for over 30 years has been a clear leader in the silage bagging industry; Miller-St. Nazianz continues this tradition with more than just the Ag-Bag name.
As a company, we have made significant investments to surround our products with technology, from design and engineering, through manufacturing and testing. Ag-Bag products stand apart from the rest for their smart design and down to earth practicality. Their performance is industry leading, yet their design doesn't get in the way of providing for easy maintenance and service.
