Rasmussen's ag job is picking up the kernels

Bob Rasmussen stands in front of a grain vacuum he purchased used last year and made some improvements on. The vac features a 160 horsepower Cummins diesel engine. It has plenty of pick up. Humboldt Independent photo.

Born and raised in Humboldt County, Bob Rasmussen may not be a celebrity, but he is just as well known.
“Everywhere I go, I have to talk to everyone,” he said. “My kids give me a hard time about knowing everyone, but you couldn’t get me to live in some place like New York City. I’m a country boy.”
Bob started in the grain vacuum business by following in his father’s footsteps, but has slowly made the business his own, cultivating many clients over two decades.
Twenty-thirteen marks the 21st year of Bob operating the Rasmussen Grain Vac business.
Bob says he likes his job, even though the work can be very hot and tiring. Read about Bob's agribusiness in a special section of this week's Humboldt Independent, A Salute to Corn Producers.
