    Lynks Seeds. 1562 Taylor Ave, Marshalltown

    ... can be traced back to the entrepreneurial spirit of Seymour Lynk and his four sons, Kenneth, Dwight, Lester and Elvis, and son-in-law Earl Baird (husband of Hulda Lynk) who farmed in the Green Mountain area ...

    The Lynks were cousins to Charles Thomas of Garst and Thomas of Coon Rapids — an established seed corn company, and in agreement with Pioneer of Des Moines, began producing and marketing hybrid seed corn. The Lynks wanted to buy some hybrid seed corn and Roswell Garst delivered it. The Lynks planted and harvested the hybrid variety and found it far superior to open pollinated corn previously grown. Later, Garst and Thomas advised the Lynks to produce their own seed. By buying parent seed from the then Iowa State College, the Lynks began producing hybrid seed corn and soon formed Lynk Brothers and Baird Hybrid Seed Corn Co. ...In 1976, with the Lynk brothers and Earl Baird considering retirement, the owners sold to International Multifoods of Minneapolis, Minn., and continued to operate the company as the Lynks had done.
