Siblings Ben, Chris, and Amanda Flansburg grew up on a small hobby farm in Western New York, all very active in 4H, FFA, and showing cattle. Through high school, all three siblings gained experience and knowledge through part time jobs on larger farming operations in Western New York. Following high school, all three chose agricultural schools to continue their education. Ben received a bachelors in Ag Science from Cornell University, Chris received a bachelors in Agronomy and Horticulture from Iowa State University, and Amanda received a bachelors in Dairy Science from Morrisville State College.
In the fall of 2008 the Flansburg siblings realized a need for precision agriculture specialists in the highly diversified and ever evolving western New York agriculture industry, and Precision Farming Division was created.
In early 2019 Precision Farming Division joined the LandPro Family creating the Ag Technology Division of LandPro Equipment.

I am a graduate from Albion High School, and Morrisville State College, where I received my degree in Agricultural Business A.A.S. I grew up playing many different sports and always staying active, until one day someone introduced me to my first beef cow and I instantly fell in love. This grew into a full time internship at a local beef and flower farm between semesters in college; and eventually, led to something of my own. I currently am a co-owner of 15 brood Simmental cows and 12 sheep. Both operations keep me busy in my spare time, but it doesn't keep me out of the woods during hunting season. Being outdoors is like second nature to me and when the opportunity arose for me to join Precision Farming Division in January 2018. I am a field operations specialist and lead the "boots on the ground" efforts at Precision Farming Division.
I grew up around farming and before attending Alfred State College, where I earned two business degrees, I worked on a very progressive dairy farm in the Finger Lakes as a herdsman. Directly out of college I was hired by Lakeland Equipment, now LandPro Equipment, as a Sales Administrator. However I quickly realized that my true passion was for Precision Agriculture. This has led to nearly 14 years and growing of creating relationships with, and finding solutions for growers all over the territory with hardware, software, and data management solutions. I enjoy my job very much and feel I have found a truly enriched career. When my boots are not on company or customer land they are typically on a long trail on a mountain in the Adirondacks where I enjoy completing a new challenge every year!
I grew up in Crawford County Pennsylvania and spent my summers with my grandfather on his small dairy farm. I was a member of the Linesville FFA Chapter and received my American Farmer Degree. I graduated Linesville High School in 1996 and went on to Northwestern University of Ohio (now UNOH) to study Auto/Diesel/Ag Repair. I achieved my Associates Degree and started working for Elders Sales & Service in 1999. With the cooperation of the dealership, I spent 6 months of 2000 in Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas on a custom harvest crew running a John Deere self propelled forage harvester and gained a lot of first hand knowledge. I came back home and have worked at the Stoneboro location since then focusing on Large Ag equipment repairs and Precision Ag Technology integration and adoption. I have worked for LandPro Equipment since they purchase Elders Sales & Service in 2018. During the summer of 2019 I’ve joined the Precision Farming Division team to continue to provide innovative solutions to our customers in the Precision Ag industry and look forward to providing new services that weren’t possible before.
