He then attended Southwest Minnesota State in Marshall and earned a degree in Crops, Soils and Pest Management from the University of Minnesota. Ryan said what he most likes about his job at Mid-County is “just being able to work with the farmers and help them produce their crops. I like being outside and scouting fields. I like how variable the job is. There’s always something different going on.” Outside of work he likes playing softball, and volleyball in the summer and bowling in the fall and winter months. He also loves spending time with his family, his wife Bria, 5 year-old son Peyton, and one month old daughter Collins.
