Why I chose agriculture
I grew up helping my dad on the farm when I was young. When I got out of school, I went to work at a sale barn. I decided that working for a wage was all right, but I’d have a better chance of getting ahead in farming. I told my dad that, and he asked me to join him.
My biggest challenge
My brother and I both have kids who want to farm. Figuring out a way to transfer our operation to the next generation is difficult, but we are working on it.
Our business approach
We have grown our operation quite a bit over the years and might do more if the opportunities are there. We want to focus on improving our land and our operation’s efficiency.
Our interests outside of farming
We enjoy riding our motorcycles and have been to Sturgis several times.
Why we work with FCSAmerica
The rates are very good and so is the service. When we go in with a plan, they’ve never turned us down. My loan officer is willing to give me his opinion when I ask, and I appreciate that. And I’ve always felt good about being an owner.
