Meet Our New Employees

Ryan Reimers grew up on a farm a few miles north of Defiance, IA. He went to Denison-Schleswig Community High School and participated in various FFA contests that led him to pursue a major in agronomy at Iowa State University. He just recently finished his junior year at Iowa State University and is an avid Cyclone fan. Ryan is excited to have started his time at HTS Ag as a precision ag intern technician and wants to thank everyone for being so inviting. He is looking forward to all the possibilities that precision agriculture will continue to have as it integrates into mainstream agriculture at an extremely fast pace. In his spare time Ryan loves to be involved on family farm with his father, uncle, and brother and enjoys riding his motorcycle and hanging out with friends.

Kaitlyn Weiser grew up in West Des Moines with her parents and two younger brothers. After graduating from Valley High School, she went to Iowa State University to pursue a field in math and science. It is at Iowa State where she joined Alpha Sigma Kappa, sorority for women in technical studies, played numerous intramural sports, created lifelong friendships, and discovered that agriculture was what she wanted to be involved in. Not coming from an agriculture background, Kaitlyn pursued numerous internships and opportunities to become more fluent in the agriculture world. After interning with Ag Leader Technology and Farmer’s Cooperative Company, as well as working in an agronomy lab and AgSolver, Inc., she found precision agriculture to be her passion and pursued a full-time career with a precision ag based company. HTS Ag was Kaitlyn’s number one choice from the beginning and is proud and thankful to now be a part of the team. In her spare time Kaitlyn likes to spend time outdoors, exercise, spend time with friends and family, craft, and cook.

Watch Your Grain - You May Have a Hotspot Now

by Chandra B. Singh, Ph.D., P.Eng. and Ron Larson, M.Sc., P.Eng.

You may have dried and cooled your grain for safe winter storage; however, the spoilage risk for stored grain is always present. If the stored grain is exposed to extreme initial storage conditions such as high moisture and/or temperature for a significant period before drying, or if the grain contains a high percentage of fines, broken and immature kernels, the spoilage risk is even greater. During the winter months we often pay less attention to our stored commodities, thinking that our grain is safer during winter months. However, grain temperature may rise significantly due to heat generated by the respiration of grain.
