Experience

Please describe your past and/or present farming experience:

My brother and I currently farm row crops and beef cattle. Together we also have a small trucking company hauling ag products. We grew up on a farm and have been farming our entire lives. Our farm has been no-till, strip-till for the last 10 or 15 years. We are knowledgeable in weed control, nutrient management, equipment, and cover crops. We are knowledgeable in corn, soybean, and wheat production. We own all our equipment and can perform everything needed to grow a profitable crop. Our farm is located in Allen county; we would prefer to stay close by but are willing to travel a bit for a suitable farm.
