About Andy - Sales & Service Manager of Youngblut Ag.
Andy grew up on a small row crop farm in Terril, Iowa. He spent every day with his older brother and father. If he wasn’t at school or participating in sports, he was at home helping out on the farm with pig chores or turning wrenches on machinery.
