New Employee Spotlight: Cody Vanderholm

Hello! I am excited to be joining the HTS Ag family and would like to say thank you to everyone for making feel welcome. I grew up on a farm south of Stanton, IA. I attended Stanton Community Schools and then went to Southeast Community College in Beatrice, NE. After graduating with a AA in Agribusiness and Management Technology, I continued my education at Graceland University where I graduated with a BA in both Agricultural Business and Business Administration.

When not at work, I spend a large majority of my time with family and friends. I am a dog dad. His name is Cooper and he is a purebred Australian Shepherd. He is probably the best mannered dog known to man. Cooper enjoys rides on the golf cart checking cows or in the truck running errands. My dad and I raise show cattle. I started showing cattle competitively when I was 5 years old. I also clip cattle for people going to shows, at shows or for sales. For those of you who aren’t familiar with this concept, consider me as a bovine beautician. Some other activities/hobbies I enjoy include: Iowa State sporting events, concerts, truck and tractor pulls, ATV/UTV races, kayaking and river floating.

One of my favorite things to do is to get out to see customers and learn about their operations. I think it’s fun to learn about how each customer got to where they are today. Everyone has a different story that is unique and I’m truly blessed to be able to hear it. I look forward to meeting all of you and hearing your stories. | Like us on Facebook | Follow us on Twitter!
