We moved to our family farm near
Reading, MN when I was nine years
old. My fascination and love for
agriculture was immediate. We grew
corn, beans and hay. One of the first
things my Dad taught me to do was
cut hay. I learned on a MF 150 and a
sickle mower. It soon became my job to cut, rake and run the baler. I've been farming
ever since. We got a round baler in the 80's and started to do custom work for area
farmers. By the late 90's we had tripled our hay acres. Hay is my main concentration
but I also still farm corn and beans. I’ve baled over 100,000 bales since we got our first
Let’s face it, this industry is evolving and changing daily. I continually study the market to
stay apprised of the latest trends in the hay industry. My interest in the industry led me
to become a sales representative for some of the companies that I trust and use myself.
I do not sell products that I don’t first try and use on my own farm.
I met with the owners of Pritchett Netwrap about seven years ago. I tried their netwrap
and was extremely impressed. More so than I had been with any other wrap I had used
in the past. It was durable, strong and it outlasted all other netwrap brands on the
market. After a short time, they offered me a position on their sales team and I ran with
it. Currently, I am their largest dealer. I mainly sell in Minnesota and South Dakota but
am proud to say I have shipped as far as Alaska, Texas and Virginia.
I have to say I enjoy selling as much as I do farming. I have met a lot of great people
through this business. I enjoy selling a quality product at a reasonable price. Besides
netwrap, we also handle twine and bale film.
I handle Alforex alfalfa and grass seed, Gold Country Seed corn and beans and Epley
Hybrids corn and beans. I also sell preservatives from Chemorse for hay and silage and
Dohrmann Applicators to apply the preservatives. All are outstanding products that I
