Howard & Pat Fleer started selling feed in 1954. They started out selling "Critic" Feed out of their garage on their farm. Some time later, they moved into a rented garage in Lewistown by the city park. They then moved again to a small store south of the 4-way stop in Lewistown. They finally planted their roots in a store building on Hwy 6 just east of the 4-way stop until their retirement June 9th, 1993.
My brother Tim and I assumed operations of the business after dad & mom retired. After a fire destroyed our store in 1998, we moved into the small store that dad & mom sold out of. We purchased the old sale barn in the late 80's, and started construction for the new feed store in the early 2000's. We completed the final construction of the office in 2007 as it sits now.
