Since the early days of the 1900's, Central Iowa farmers knew they needed a place to market their grain for a fair price.  Now, over 100 years later, Heartland Co-op has evolved into the cooperative it is today with its 71 locations providing products and services to its farmer members/patrons.    
At each benchmark during the past 100 years, Heartland Co-op looked at the future needs of its members and chose growth over stagnation. The old, original elevators served the needs of those turn-of-the-century farmers who unified in order to put some clout in their grain marketing. We're still doing everything we can to give Heartland-area farmers a voice in the future of agriculture.

We believe in differentiating ourselves from the competition by providing unique, value-added and innovative solutions to our customers. Currently we are proud to have over 5,800 members and conduct business with them and others at one or more of our full-service, customer-oriented 71 cooperative locations around the state.

Sinclair Oil Corporation has been helping western America drive with confidence for over 90 years. Formed from the assets of eleven small petroleum companies in 1916, Sinclair is one of the oldest continuous names in the oil business. The first corporate emblem, SINCO, was registered November 1, 1916.

Sinclair began development of the apatosaurus (brontosaurus) in its advertising, sales promotions, and product labels in 1930. The apatosaurus was registered as a Sinclair trademark in 1932. An exhibit at the 1933 Chicago Worlds Fair highlighted dinosaurs and established Sinclair as the company that featured the apatosaurus. Again in 1964 at the New York City Worlds Fair, Sinclair proudly displayed an exhibit featuring nine life-sized dinosaurs highlighting its unique association with the age of the dinosaur—an age representative of the beginning of the formation of crude oil.
The current Sinclair trademark is one of the most recognized company emblems in the United States. The pentagon border and apatosaurus figure was registered in 1959.

Most oil companies have modified their corporate emblem while undergoing reorganization or ownership changes. Sinclair's trademark has remained unchanged. With the current popularity of dinosaurs in general, the Sinclair trademark and the sales promotion items using the apatosaurus are more popular than ever.
