Graham’s entire life has been surrounded with and revolved around production and animal agriculture. He grew up on a family owned purebred swine farm located in Central Iowa where they had 500 sows and farmed over 1000 acres. His family sold the livestock side of the operation in 1999 when he went off to Iowa State University, majoring in Agricultural Business. In the spring of 2003, he started in a sales position with a Kansas-based feed company traveling the states of Iowa, Minnesota, and South Dakota working with local dealerships and farmers. After 2 plus years in the feed business, Graham re-enrolled at the University of Minnesota and completed his college education receiving a Bachelor's degree in Animal Science with a minor in Agricultural Business. He continues to actively raise livestock and crops.
He has been with AgStar since 2005 and is currently a Relationship Manager in Capital Markets. Industries that he provides valuable information for include: beef, swine, poultry, dairy, nursery, timber, renewable energy, food and grain.
