I grew up on our family farm in Grunthal, MB. My family and I still live nearby.
Before I worked with FarmLink, I was a futures broker and risk management consultant with FCStone. But my very first job in the agriculture industry was in dairy feed sales.
I really like the daily challenge of understanding markets and translating that into helping farmers make good selling decisions.
The anticipation of a major USDA report back in the days when the markets would regularly trade limit up or limit down. I remember waking up in the middle of the night on more than one occasion to check the overnight markets when prices were volatile.
If I wasn’t market analyst, I would likely be working with an international missions or charitable organization.
