I grew up in Ellsworth, Wisconsin on a family farm with dairy and hogs. I went to school at the University of Wisconsin at River Falls and studied Soil Science and Agronomy. I began working as an independent crop consultant in the early 1990s and also working in a local cooperative doing everything from agronomy to custom application. I have spent the past 17 years in the seed business focused on corn, soybeans and alfalfa. At Legend Seeds, I am the Dairy and Livestock Business Lead.
