Current employment/job title: Premier Crop Systems LLC, Neola, IA, Agronomic Information Advisor
Ag Business is the perfect major for the field that I’m in. Every day I get to work with family farms and become apart of their “Farm Team.” We want to produce as many bushels as possible, but with an economic benefit to their farm.
Many of the farms I work with have transitioned from “Yield per Acre Maps,” to “Cost per bushel Maps.” This allows us to benchmark profitability in every field and start to make changes to improve profitability on the farm as a whole. I took a lot of classes that help me today, from agronomy, farm business management, to the entrepreneurship classes offered.
