I am an Edgar native, where I grew up on a Registered Holstein Dairy farm. I graduated from Edgar High School and attended college at UW-River Falls, where I earned a BS degree in Broad Area Agriculture with a minor in Agronomy. I worked 13 years as an Agronomy Production Specialist for Cenex/Land O’ Lakes and 9 years as a Machinery Sales Consultant for a local John Deere dealership. I started with Cropping Central LLC in the fall of 2012. I also have been running a small cash grain farm since 1994. I am married to my wife Jodi and have three daughters: Andrea, Katelyn and Natalie. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with family, golfing, fishing and playing softball.
