On December 20, we welcomed Jacob Petrie to the agronomy sales staff. Jacob graduated from UW-Platteville in 2015. He has a double major in Soil Crop Sciences and Agri business. He now resides in the Neenah area.
Before starting with CHS Larsen he worked for two years as an agronomist at a neighboring cooperative. Then he worked for a retailer for another seed dealer in the Chilton area for 3 years. He wanted to work for CHS Larsen because he felt we are a well-organized company where he would fit into the position well. He also enjoyed working in the cooperative system and wanted to get back into it.
His ag interest developed when he was able to keep a steer at his uncles farm, to show at the county fair, and it grew from there. In his free time he enjoys the outdoors – fishing, sports and fitness. Fun fact about Jacob is he is getting married in October 2020.
He is looking forward to meeting everyone and developing relationships in the future. Feel free to reach out to Jacob with your agronomy needs.
