About Us

History & Introduction

Blair’s Fertilizer was started in Drake, Saskatchewan by Sandy and Lindsay Blair in 1948, when, while farming, they became interested in the possibility of using fertilizer, so they brought in some Elephant brand fertilizer from Cominco and it was the first rail car of fertilizer that was brought into Saskatchewan. Ron Blair later took over the business. Ron’s son Kevin and nephew Darren joined the business, Kevin in 1988 and Darren in 2000. Kevin became CEO in 2003 and is a 50/50 partner in the business with Darren. Over the years the business has grown not only in locations, which they now have seven of in Lanigan, Nokomis, Watrous, Liberty, McLean, Strongfield and Lipton, but in businesses. Within Blair’s are Blair’s, Blair’s Crop and Livestock Solutions, Blair’s SportsMaster Pro, and Blairs.Ag Cattle Company. Blair’s has everything to cover your farming, livestock, and gaming needs.

Our Business Culture & Philosophy

Our team of agriculture professionals are passionate about the business of agriculture.  Along with our business, many of our employees have their own personal stake in agriculture and therefore, have a very in-depth understanding of agriculture from the grassroots level.  Our goal is to bring innovation and new technology to our customers that can make a profitable impact on their farms.   Our business is large enough to attract strategic alliances with other companies like agricultural manufacturers, yet nimble enough to adapt to the ever changing landscape in agriculture.  We have pioneered crop technologies like direct seeding, preharvest of glyphosate in-crop,  pre-seed burnoff applications,  controlled release nitrogen, and micronutrient applications to name a few.  Our goal is always to provide our customers with solutions that are practical, applicable and profitable.  We believe that no one cares more about our customers operations than Blair’s.
