It all started getting valuable experience on the farm helping my Grandpa and dad. Whether it be riding along in the 1 ton truck sprayer on a make shift seat or naps on the floor of the truck hauling in to the now painted Fowler elevator back in the day. Before you know it FFA, 4-H and Purdue came along. Enjoyed majoring in Ag Business and Minoring in Crop Science for the short time that lasted. Four years does fly!
Working for a local Seed Production company was a great experience learning to manage a seed production plant in several different areas of the midwest. Contracting acres, cleaning the seed, treating, bagging, and warehousing gave me a look into why a bag of seed is so special.
Most recently, working for an up and coming local start-up seed company showed me the sales and service side of the business. From selling direct, managing, and recruiting new dealer and retailer relationships to overseeing the plot program and end-market user relationships. Traveling around 10 states and visiting with farmers, state agronomists, company managers, and salesmen allowed me to see a different view of the seed industry. What a time to be alive. Looking forward to what the future has in store here at Budreau Ag! Stay tuned-in!
