Winning Where You Are with Scott Logue

Oct 21, 2022
Often, it’s the ones who are raised on the farm that are convinced they’ll never leave. There's something about the land, the heritage, and the promise of a new day with every sunrise over the eastern sky that keeps those boots firmly planted in the place called home.

Except for Scott Logue’s boots. They were on the move.

Scott Logue, Executive Vice President of Co-Alliance, actually knew at an early age that, although one of three boys being raised on the family’s Union County farm, he did not want to return to make a living here. It is not that he didn’t respect the work or the lifestyle, he knew that he wasn’t wired to do the best job in the cab of a tractor or in a confined feeding barn.

Running a business was his perceived calling and following high school graduation he attended Ball State University to study entrepreneurship, with the goal being the owner of an implement dealership. But a well-planned business deal went south and the business ownership dream became delayed.

It may have been because of the mullet. 

But that setback was timed perfectly for fate to walk through the door.

Scott began his 25-year career with the co-op as an applicator. You should know that on his first day on the job he caught the applicator on fire. So that should make you feel better about your own tough days at work.
Year after year, Scott never turned down a task or a request for help at co-op various locations. He was sweeping the elevator floor one day, driving a truck the next, and pulling a fuel oil hose by Friday. That desire to learn and do more only accelerated Scott’s career within the cooperative.

Prior to his Executive Vice President role with Co-Alliance, he was many things, but most recently the President and CEO of Harvest Land. When the two co-ops merged his storyline left Union County and moved to Hendricks County where he and wife Daisy reside today.

They have two sons in their early 20s, both Boilermakers – one an alum.

His family has been competitive in this show pig industry as the boys grew through the ranks of the show ring. Their competitive spirit and drive to excel has led the family of four across the country, often bringing banners home to Indiana.

Scott’s insight into his path throughout the cooperative is quite remarkable. His precise memory (he seems to be a walking cooperative yearbook) walks listeners down a 25-year timeline of the evolution of, not only his personal growth through challenges, but also the progression of the cooperative.

Mentors, finding joy, attitude, winning, losing and risk are all part of Scott’s journey he takes us on during this brief conversation. We invite you to hear Scott’s story, lean into his extraordinary life advice and learn about his beef with plastic cutlery.
