Faces of MSGA: Brad Verly

Brad Verly grew up on a farm just south of Marshall, where his father and uncle continue to farm together. He left the farm to study accounting at St. John’s University and then worked in Minneapolis for three years.

“I decided I wanted to be closer to the farm to get more involved,” Verly says.

Brad Verly is a member of the Lyon County Corn and Soybean Growers Board.

Verly worked at a CPA firm for about three years, and then took a position at Minnesota West Community and Technical College where he currently is a farm business management instructor. Verly assists farmers in their day-to-day operations, and helps students figure out their profitability, cost of production and analyzing their different fields and crops.

Verly joined the Lyon County Corn and Soybean Growers Board because he wanted to have a stake in something that was important to him.

“I think it’s important (to become an MSGA member) because what we do, whether it is directly in production or a related agricultural field, it is all tied together, and I think all of our successes are intertwined,” Verly says. “We need to work together to have our industry be successful.”
