About Us


My wife and I are independent producers farming in southern Minnesota along with my father and brother. We raise hogs and corn. We use several of the Channel products that we sell in our own row crop operation. Before returning to the farm, I worked several years in the construction industry. Prior to that I attended UW-River Falls obtaining a B.S. in Agriculture.
