About Pete - Owner and operator of Youngblut Ag
Pete grew up on a row crop farm between Dysart and La Porte City, Iowa. He can't remember a time as a kid when he wasn't in a tractor or truck with one of his parents.
Education & Experience
Once Pete graduated high school he took off for college and after some looking, decided to major in Ag Business management from Hawkeye Community College in Waterloo, Iowa. There he learned about all of the different sides of agriculture and found a fit in precision ag. From HCC he moved on to a Software Support Specialist position with Ag Leader Technology in Ames, IA. He worked there for five years answering customer support calls as well as traveling the United States and Canada teaching customers and dealers about SMS desktop software and how it worked together with all of the different precision ag systems on the market. Pete then began to look for opportunities that would get him closer to the family farming operation and closer to his family and friends back home in Dysart. He went to work for a precision ag dealer for a short period of time before moving back home with a new wife and a new goal.
A New Venture - Entrepreneurship
After talking with family, Pete opened Youngblut Ag in January of 2013. Primarily opperating out of a home office and installing systems out of the back of his truck, he was able to stay on the move and keep up with customers needs.
Our Philosophy & Growth
With the background on the farm and in data management, Youngblut Ag continues to strive to provide the customer with all of the information necessary to make an informed decision about what products will work best on their operation as well as how to utilize the information that they record throughout each growing season. Youngblut Ag will be opening their first official location in Dysart, Iowa along with hiring a new employee for the 2015 crop season.
