In 1949, Roy Lowe Jr and Don Young started the legacy of Lowe and Young. We first started selling Minneapolis Moline tractors and operated a gas station in front of the dealership. In 1952 we began selling New Holland hay and forage line of equipment and in 1959 we took on the Massey Ferguson line of equipment. In 1979 Carlton Steiner, Walt Stutz, and Don Young purchased Roy Lowe’s shares and had sole ownership. As Lowe and Young grew with the additional lines, we added a 25 x 100 ft addition on the west side of the building for sales and accounting offices. In 1986, we started selling Ford tractors, which grew the business again.
As the years went on, we have added many other lines of equipment such as Fendt, Krone, Kinze, Landpride, Great Plains, Krause and others. In November 2011, Carlton Steiner retired as President/CEO and sold his majority stock position to the current owners, Bill Hartzler, Jason Steiner, Craig Forrer and Bill Boreman. Jon Bauman was added to the ownership group in 2020. Rusty Lengacher was added to the group in 2022 and Kyle Gasser was added to the group in 2023. While our owners might be changing, one thing will remain constant: our unwavering commitment to provide our customers with the best customer service possible. Providing the best service and having the parts in stock when you need them has always been the top priority at Lowe & Young.
