I grew up on a farm near Rushmore, Minnesota and graduated from Adrian High School. After graduation I attended Worthington Community College for Agriculture Business. Once I finished there I returned to the family farm to begin my farming career. I have been a Dekalb/Asgrow Seed Specialist for 16 seasons. There is no company in the world I would rather work for! I started out by just wanting to learn more about agronomy, but it turned into an opportunity to work with many different customers and help them with their seed decisions. The I-90 concept was presented to us about a year ago and the idea immediately took off. With the joining of dealerships, it gave us the ability to be on the cutting edge of the soybean treating industry and bulk soybean seed sales. Now I-90 will be a one-stop-shop for all your Monsanto seed needs AND all your seed treatment needs.
When not selling, my wife of 16 years Melanie and 4 kids &ndash Mackenzie (15), Mitchell (14), Marshall (10), and Madeline (8) and their activities occupy the majority of my free time. The kids are involved in a variety of sports in Adrian. They are also active in 4-H & show in Nobles County. Melanie works as the school nurse for the Adrian School District. Our hobbies include boating, camping, and snowmobiling.
On a daily basis, you can find me early in the morning feeding cattle. My father and I run a feeder to finish cattle operation in addition to the farming. I also have 50 cows that we run on pasture. A fair number of cows in our herd are past 4-H heifers that the kids spent their time showing.
In closing, I just want to take the opportunity to thank each and every one of you for trusting I-90 with your seed needs. We wouldn’t be here without you and appreciate your business very much!
