Congratulations, Justice Keefauver!

May 02, 2022

We are excited to welcome Justice Keefauver to the team! Learn more about Justice and join us as we congratulate him on his new role as a Sales Agronomist.
 
“I was born and raised in Cold Spring, MN. I enjoy spending my free time with my wife, friends, and family at the lake, hunting, fishing, golfing, and playing fetch with my golden retriever.
 
Growing up, I watched my dad interact with retail sales managers/agronomists to help them position products and services with the growers around central Minnesota. This inspired me to pursue a degree in agriculture where I could help create impactful experiences, with growers of today and tomorrow.
 
Post high school, I attended North Dakota State University, where I achieved a bachelor’s degree in Agricultural Business. I spent every summer doing internships from university potato research, and retail agronomy in central MN to sales and marketing with an industry-leading manufacturing company. I also was an active member of the Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity.
 
After graduation, in the spring of 2017, my wife and I moved to southeast, MN where I got a sales agronomist role, with a progressive retail Co-op. I worked there as an advisor for five years with a large customer base of dairy producers, beef producers, and row crop producers. I enjoyed the diverse client base and excelled quickly in the fast-paced environment. I have a wealth of knowledge in crop protection, seed, precision agronomy, fertility balance, plant health, and return on investment.
 
I look forward to bringing my experiences and different perspective to the team, at Maple River Grain and Agronomy, earning the trust and building long-term relationships with our customers. I am eager to meet everyone and look forward to advising/educating customers to meet their farming goals of high yields and strong profitability!”
