How can Frontier Futures be a partner in your operation’s success?
I farm corn, soybeans, and alfalfa with my father on our family farm, where I grew up in rural Williamsburg, Iowa. I have always been passionate about agriculture, so after graduation, I decided to further my ag education at Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa. I graduated from ISU in May of 2017 with a Major in Agricultural Business and a Minor in Ag Systems Technology. I chose to pursue a career path in helping farmers manage risk in the commodity markets because I believe one of the most valuable assets to farmers is a solid marketing and risk management plan. I became a licensed broker for Frontier in September of 2017 and look forward to helping other farmers develop risk management plans with my experience as a broker and a fellow farmer. I am passionate about ag business, economics, finance, technology, mechanics, day to day operations, agronomy, soil fertility, fertilizer markets, and finding ways to be more efficient. I keep up to date with what is going on in the grain markets on the world-wide spectrum while also staying in touch with local cash markets. I live in rural Williamsburg with my fiancé, Kate, and enjoy spending time with friends in my spare time. My favorite time of year is spring because it is a fresh start to a new crop and the grain markets start to pick up volatility, making things more exciting and creating opportunity. Most importantly, the temps are perfect, and the days get longer!
