Board of Directors - Member Spotlight
Greetings! My name is Nathan Casper and I am proud to be a member of WAPAC!
I was born and raised in the rural town of Adell, WI (population 517). At age 3, I started “farming” my parents' rugs and carpets with a multi-colored fleet of 1/64
th scale Ertl tractors. I liked to think I was one of the biggest operations in the county at that time! Despite running a successful “carpet farming” operation, I knew it wouldn’t be enough to pay the bills. So in September of 2005, the “farmer from Adell” left to attend UW-River Falls. I was dismayed that they didn’t offer any carpet farming degrees so I settled for a B.S. in the Crop and Soil Sciences and graduated in 2009.
Soon after, I met my future employer, Steve Hoffman, on a dark and stormy night on a rural Sheboygan County backroad (you can ask me if you would like to know more details about this story). I was intrigued by this consultant named Steve who proficiently scouted crops (and potential new agronomists) by the light of the moon, and so I joined InDepth Agronomy as an Independent Crop Consultant in 2010.
I love agriculture as a career and the profession of consulting. Every year is a new weather, weed, insect, or disease challenge! I also enjoy getting to be a part of several dynamic and progressive farming operations and seeing clients implement new technologies.
In my free time I enjoy working on my country yard, cutting firewood, spending time with my dog Jack-Jack, enjoying my siblings, and catching up on my farm magazines and journals.
I am glad to be part of WAPAC and am excited to see how we as a group can be a positive and powerful voice for our clients!
