About Us

History & Introduction ammonia2.tif

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. 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 joined the business 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 but in businesses. Blair’s has ag retail locations in Lanigan, Nokomis, Watrous, Liberty, McLean, Strongfield, Lipton and Rosthern with a fertilizer distribution center in Hanley. Within Blair’s are Blair’s Crop and Livestock Solutions, Blairs.Ag Cattle Company, Blair’s AgIntelligence, Blair’s Premium Angus Beef, and TexCana Logistics. Blair’s has everything to cover your farming, livestock, and gaming needs.
