What I enjoy most about farming

My passion is the farm. I learn something new every day, and I always am doing something different. Working with my dad, we get along really well. I have a passion for working for myself and seeing progress and success.

Why I work with FCSAmerica

They’re so easy to work with. By establishing trust and being able to work so well together, they make it easier to sleep at night because I don’t have to worry about them not being there to help me reach my goals.

How FCSAmerica helps me meet my greatest challenges

Understanding the markets in a way that allows me to become a better farmer and be successful is a big challenge for me as I continue to take a larger role in the operation. It worries me sometimes how fast you can make or lose money because of how volatile the markets are today. That’s where I feel lucky to have FCSAmerica to help me get further into the financial side of things.

My advice to other young producers

The more I get into it, the more I learn how aggressive I need to be. It’s important to learn as much as you can about what it takes to manage an operation and how aggressive to be in pursuing growth opportunities.
