Why I chose agriculture
My grandpa farmed, my dad farms and I have helped out on the farm for as long as I remember. I worked as a diesel mechanic for five years, but farming is in my blood and I like the idea that you can be your own boss.
My greatest challenge
In this environment we’re trying to be as efficient as we can. I think the best thing you can do to improve efficiency is to communicate, to make sure everyone involved in the operation is on the same page.
My business approach
I want to grow my operation. With so many farmers reaching retirement age, I hope to rent more ground and eventually buy land.
The future of my business
I think crop prices will bounce back over time, though maybe not to the levels we saw a few years ago.
Why I work with FCSAmerica
My dad works with FCSAmerica and he’s never had a complaint, so I went with them too. Everyone in the office knows who you are and greets you by name. Seems like I’ve known my financial officer forever – in fact, he was my little league baseball coach. The cash-back dividend this spring was a nice reminder that I’m not just a customer, but a customer-owner.
