Adam collaborates with the Corteva™ Agriscience Supply Chain for soybean related activities including packaging, demand planning, and quality assurance.
His position is challenging and diverse. Adam says “interacting with our 17 soybean growers and the variability in the scope of work throughout the season” is what makes his job rewarding. He enjoys the problem-solving situations and creating a true sense of teamwork among the employees.

“Because of Adam’s leadership and vision, many departments function at a higher level,” says Kim Mayne, Operations Leader. “His open-door policy to listen to people and help them find a solution, be better informed, and feel comfortable is a great asset to Dairyland Seed.”
Adam grew up on a small dairy farm in Kewaskum, WI, milking 80-85 cows and helping with skid loader work in the free stall barn in addition to field work. Some of his cherished memories include working side-by-side with his dad on the farm and he was especially fascinated with learning how to fix equipment.
In his free time, he travels with his girlfriend, plays golf, and spends time with family and friends enjoying a good IPA or a glass of wine. Upcoming travel plans include a trip to Sedona, AZ, where he plans to hike, relax and check out local wineries. He enjoys the challenge of home improvement projects and has completed work on both the kitchen and bathroom.
His passion for vinyl records has led to exploring thrift stores to add to his current collection consisting of 50-60’s Blues and Folk and 60’s-70’s rock music.
Adam currently resides in Allenton, WI. He has two children, Mason, 16 and Ella, 14.
