I am originally from Ohio where I went to college for ag business. I spent the last 5 years as a District manager with Wyffels Hybrids, and prior to that I was a sales agronomist for Hefty.”  Kelly just moved to Mitchell and will soon be married to her fiancé Josh Lutter.  In her spare time, Kelly enjoys golfing, working out and training her lab for pheasant hunting.

Al Lenhart has been hired as a District Sales Manager in our Coyote Seeds Small Grain Division.  Al’s focus will be Northern Iowa and Southern Minnesota.
