Brookside Agra Announces Partnership with Cardinal Agriculture Services

(O’Fallon, IL, Dec. 2, 2014) – Brookside Agra, a leading producer of all-natural agricultural and environmental products, has partnered with soil and plant nutrition experts/consultants Ben Elliott and Andy Rynski of Cardinal Agriculture Services, Freeburg, IL.


Elliott, President and CEO of Cardinal Agriculture Services, has worked in the chemical formulating and research fields for the past 10 years, providing consultation services both nationally and internationally. He specializes in intensive management for growers adopting new practices based on biological aspects of decision making, data management and systems integration. He has also served as an advisor to chemical distributors, retailers and agronomists where soil microbiology is the main focus of his research and services.

Elliott has a BS in Agricultural Business from the University of Tennessee and a Masters Degree in Biology from Bethel University. He has worked with growers in 40 states and six international locations covering more than 50 crops for commercial production.


Rynski, co-owner of Cardinal Agriculture Services, attended Rend Lake College and was an independent pork producer before he transitioned to working as a site manager for Maschoff Pork Farms. He spent 10 years as a manager for a sow unit and finisher, then spent the next three years with John Deere as a service manager where he was educated on precision-ag and equipment for a six- store dealer network. It was then that Rynski transitioned into crop and livestock insurance where he specializes in livestock operations, precision policies and risk management.


“Ben and Andy both have a tremendous amount of environmental and agricultural expertise that they bring to the table,” said Tony Arro, Brookside Agra Director of Sales – North America.  “We are happy to be able to utilize their tremendous bank of knowledge in expanding our all-natural environmental and agricultural product lines and expertise.”
