Biographical Information

I’m a Hoosier farmer working to makes a difference wherever I can. Whether it’s focusing on stewardship or seizing new opportunities like running for a board position, I have often said “yes” even when it means turning my life upside down. I live near the town of Brazil with my wife Brenda. My son, Trent, and I farm in the counties of Clay, Parke, Putnam and Vigo. We currently produce corn, soybeans, hay and finish cattle. Through the years we have produced a variety of other crops including seed corn, seed beans, seed wheat, popcorn, food grade corn, edible beans and tofu beans. We also operated a cow/calf and farrow-finish hog operation. We are big proponents of conservation and environmentally minded using the latest technology and production practices.

Why do you want to serve on the Farm Credit Mid-America Board?

Farm Credit Mid-America has been a partner in the success of our operation. I am honored to have been asked to run again for the board by the Nominating Committee. My goal is to use the leadership skills and experience that I have gained by serving on the Farm Credit Mid-America board in the past to help guide the organization into the future. In the ever-changing industry of agriculture, I believe having an experienced, involved and engaged board of directors will make the difference between being a lender or being a lender of choice.
