About Blue River

Blue River is a family business.
Bueal Hedstrom started “Hedstrom Concrete Products” in 1974 when he saw the need for a cattle waterer with greater capacity and a recessed hood. The solution: he designed one! This cattle waterer was so successful that it served as a springboard for more innovative products. Bueal’s son, Al, joined him in the venture and has worked with concrete products ever since. Al eventually started his own company in Onawa. Bueal retired in 1996 and sold his company to an outside party. Al returned and acquired the company. Blue River is back in the family and flourishing under Al’s direction and dedication.
