Top 10 under 40 Industry Leaders Named

The Cattle Business Weekly

PHILIP, S.D. – Individuals who are striving to be leaders and change-makers in the cattle industry are highlighted annually by an ag publication based in Philip.

The Top 10 Industry Leaders Under the Age of 40 is compiled by The Cattle Business Weekly. Each year the publication selects a group of men and women who are contributing to the current and future success of the U.S. cattle industry.

The Top 10 are routinely people who represent production agriculture, marketing, ag affiliate services, education, research, finance, and ag advocating.

Named to this year’s class of Top 10 are Todd Lindskov, South Dakota, Rocky Forseth, Montana, Cole Sonne, South Dakota, Calli Thorne, North Dakota, Chelsea Good, Kansas, Kiley McKinna, South Dakota, Jake Tiedeman, Nebraska, Dustin Frey, North Dakota, Lane Schmitt, Montana and Lane Geiss, Colorado.

“In a year when negative news seems to be printed daily it is our pleasure to bring you this class of Top 10,” says Donnie Leddy, publisher of The Cattle Business Weekly. “Their individual stories, entrepreneurial spirit and commitment to agriculture is inspiring.”

The Top 10 individuals were honored through profiles in the Cattle Business Weekly’s annual herd reference guide magazine that was out this October. You can also read the profiles online at www.cattlebusinessweekly.com.
