In the Pioneer Seed business since 1990, Curtis Bauman began selling seed from his farm north of Huron, SD. In 1995 he added crop and crop-hail insurance sales to his business now operating as Bauman Seed and Crop Insurance.
In 2000 he moved the seed and crop insurance business to its current location 9 miles north of Huron at the intersection of SD Hwy 37 and 199th Street, Huron, SD, adding seed treatments and then bulk seed to the line-up. Bauman Agency, Inc. was established shortly thereafter.
In 2010 his daughter, Callee Bauman Wachter, joined him in the family business, adding Precision Planting technology sales and service to the offerings.
