Around that time, Lloyd's son, Bob, became instrumental in Hodgskiss Seed's development. As the second generation to work the farm, Bob expanded the number of bins for cleaning and became certified in custom seed cleaning and seed sales. He saw that the business his father started had a larger potential and in the late 1980s, he put together a plan to build a seed load-out facility in Choteau. In 1994, Hodgskiss Seed purchased five acres on the east side of town and built the facility with a scale, six bins, and a seed treater. In 1998, Bob installed high volume seed cleaning equipment on site. Over time, bins were added, more farmers were contracted to grow seed, and a new generation of Hodgskisses stepped into the family business.
