Randy Rentschler

Randy Rentschler, 51, of Elkader, died Saturday, March 26, 2016, at his home in St. Olaf. He was born on September 4, 1964, in Prairie du Chien, WI, the son of Curt G. and Betty C. (Syverson) Rentschler. 

He had many loves in his life. The number one was his family, camping, snowmobiling, four wheeling—anything to do with nature, playing cards and spending time fishing at the pond.

He truly loved his four grandchildren. He had great friends, especially our camping family.  Many laughs. The bigger the campfire, the better.

Technology on the Farm - New tools increase efficiency, reduce losses


Joe Shirbroun, Farmersburg, left, uses an iPad to verify seed delivery information.

Editor’s note: Look for more agriculture-related articles in our Farm & Field section, which is distributed with this week’s Trader. The section is a collaborative effort of the Register, North Iowa Times and the Courier Press.

The pioneering spirit that brought Suzanne Shirbroun’s family to Clayton County six generations ago continues today as Suzanne, her husband, Joe, and their three sons—Nate, Andrey and Tom—blaze new trails in the field of precision technology. It’s an effort that requires an investment in and extensive use of technological tools.
