AgVenture of Nebraska extends westward reach – hires AgVenture Yield Specialist Lance Shifflet

KENTLAND, INDIANA (May 4, 2015) Lance Shifflet has joined AgVenture of Nebraska (AVN) Seed Partners. Shifflet, originally from Cambridge, Nebraska is moving back to his hometown where he will work one-on-one with farmers across southwest Nebraska, providing them with access to AgVenture® brand seed products and year-round professional seed support.

Most recently, Shifflet served as a district sales manager for a seed company in the Lincoln area. Prior to that, he graduated with a degree in business management from Doane College at Crete, Nebraska.

AVN Partner Tim Weeces said, “Lance has a strong work ethic and is dedicated to providing exceptional service to his customers. We look forward to his ability to deliver real value to his customers.

Weeces said each of the AVN team members is focused on helping customers do more with their farming operation. “Through careful crop planning, we work with our customers throughout the year to help them achieve new yield goals, lower their cost per bushel production and advance their overall profitability. It takes dedication; working in the field throughout the growing season. We are there from the seed selection and planning process, from planting, crop development all the way through harvest to help assure they get the most out of their crop. It’s a partnership that is proving its worth across the region as the AgVenture brand is recognized for making those goals a reality.”

Shifflet said, “This is a great opportunity for me. I am confident in these products and so pleased to have the opportunity to put the products and our services to work in my home community.” He added, “I have learned so much already from the AVN group. They take this commitment seriously and do everything it takes to deliver on their promise. We’ll do that consistently with top-performing seed products that are locally adapted and specifically selected for this area, and being present in the field to assure that success. Sharing that with friends, family and throughout the area is a privilege.”

Shifflet and his wife, Lisa will make their home in the Cambridge area. He adds, “We both look forward to becoming involved in the community.
