In 1996, I started Progressive Planting, an agricultural distribution company to help farmers, such as myself, to maximize equipment performance. Since then, Progressive Planting has set the standard in quality and service.


As a farmer, I use the equipment we sell and I understand my customers’ needs. I know it’s important for equipment to function properly and in the specific manner my customers expect. Being able to help my customers farm their own way is why people keep coming back.


Growing up on a farm in Osage, Iowa, I understand Midwest farmers’ needs. My degree in Agricultural Business from the University of Nebraska and Certification in Crop Advising give me the tools to recommend the right equipment and service to all my customers. When you shop with Progressive Planting you’re not just buying equipment, you are getting my knowledge and my experience.


Progressive Planting carries equipment by; Precision Planting, McFarlane, Montag, Blu Jet, Martin, Yetter, and Tru Count (Trimble). Check out the Product Lines page for more information on these brands.

Feel free to contact me with questions or inquires.
