Aaron Paus has been farming since 2000. Armed with an ag-econ degree from the University of Nebraska, he farms 4500 acres — 95 percent corn, five percent soybeans.
Aaron has worked with Jeremy McCroden of AgVenture of Nebraska for over ten years, which drives the operation to new insights year after year. Recently, Jeremy nominated Aaron for the AgVenture Discovery Group to explore new high-yielding techniques and strategies.
The men also have help from Aaron’s wife, Venissa, who is very active in the operation. “She's the cattle prod that makes sure all the stuff I talk about actually happens,” Aaron says. Together they have five kids, ranging from 6 to 15 years old. Though it’s hard to know what the future holds, they’re building a legacy — not only for their children, but beyond.
