"Ag is a big part of my heritage. I remember getting up in the middle of the night to deliver calves and riding in the combine and the tractor with my dad and uncles, although the equipment back then was nothing like it is now. It's hard work, but it's rewarding work." Brian still goes home to help out with calving, planting, and harvesting.
After growing up on the family farm in Hitchcock, SD, Brian attended SDSU and graduated with degrees in both Ag Business and Economics. For the past 12 years he's been working with farmers to help them achieve their financial goals.
The next time you're out at the Sioux Empire Farm Show, be sure to introduce yourself to Brian, and maybe even talk to him about that new equipment.

FUN FACT: My high school sweetheart married me, even though during my last football game, I ran backwards 35 yards to cause a safety. The mercy rule finally kicked in, putting our team out of its misery!
