J.R. Edmondson

Minneapolis, MN

I grew up on my family’s farm in central Indiana producing corn and soybeans, and my interest in markets started at a very young age. My grandmother was responsible for the grain marketing on our farm and I can still remember playing on her DTN machine as she taught me how the markets worked. Since that young age, I have had a passion for the markets and always dreamed of building a career that involved commodity trading.
I am a proud fifth generation Purdue Boilermaker Alumnus, having graduated in May 2020 with a degree in Agricultural Economics. I have spent time out west on a wheat crop tour and interned with ADM as a grain merchandiser. There are many aspects of farming that I have loved learning about, and those experiences have helped shaped my perspective and knowledge of the markets.
I have been a broker with Frontier since July 2018 and joined the company as a full-time market advisor in our Minneapolis office in June of 2020.
In my spare time I enjoy cross country running, Purdue Athletics and of course, talking shop with other farmers!
