Manager of Iowa Research Branch
Brent was born and raised in Aurora, IL and attended The University of Iowa where he studied Economics and Business Administration.
He started his seed career at Seaboard Seed Company in Bristol, IL in 1990 as assistant to the Vice President of Operations. His duties included managing seed positions, procurement of packaging and regulatory compliance. By 1993 Brent was responsible for professional turf sales and operations for the Bristol, IL location of Lebanon-Seaboard Seed.
In 1995 Brent joined John Zuelzer & Son as a seed broker. As a broker he was exposed to many leading seed companies around the world and gained valuable experience in International business. He became a partner of Zuelzer USA in 2000.
In January 2006 Brent joined Grassland Oregon as a turf and forage seed salesman. Since then, his focus has changed to forage and cover crop sales. In 2013 he added a role in turf and forage research by opening the Richland, IA research farm. "I have always wanted to be a farmer, play in the dirt and watch things grow."
Having first-hand knowledge of how our turf, forage and cover crop products perform in the Midwest gives Brent a depth of knowledge of Grassland Oregon's top rated product line.
