Osborn & Barr (O&B)
Osborn & Barr (O&B), founded in 1988 with four employees and a single account, has a staff of
more than 140 professionals today. We are the largest agricultural and rural focused marketing
communications agency in North America with U.S. offices in St. Louis and Kansas City.
We know the agricultural industry inside and out. Though the company has recently celebrated
its 22nd year of business, the expertise actually began long before the company opened its doors
as founder, Steve Barr, worked in various marketing and advertising positions for Monsanto and
John Deere. Since then, the agency has hired personnel who are not only experts in the marketing
and branding field, but many O&B employees were either raised on or currently operate a farm.
So literally, agriculture is a personal passion for us.
