Faces of MSGA: Danny Brandt

March-April 2024

Born and raised in Ada, Danny Brandt has been involved in the agriculture industry since he was a youngster. In high school, Brandt started investing in the family operation and eventually started raising his own crops. From there, he decided to pursue farming as a career. This upcoming growing season will mark Brandt’s 38th year of working on his family’s farm in Norman County.

“Farming and producing came natural to me,” said Brandt, a member of the Norman County Corn & Soybean Growers Association. “I like the challenges of the agricultural world. It’s always changing.”

Danny Brandt is excited to pass his farm on to the next generation.

Brandt enjoys sharing his love for farming with his three children, who will be the fifth generation on the family farm. He is excited to have his oldest son, aged 14, gradually stepping into more important roles on the farm.

“My children are eyeing up the world of agriculture,” said Brandt. “It’s very exciting to see their interest.”

As a father, Brandt sees the importance of having the next generation’s voice heard when it comes to agricultural advocacy. That’s one of the many reasons why he supports his industry through membership in the Minnesota Soybean Growers Association.

“We have to keep telling our story,” Brandt said. “It’s important for my kids to know that their voices mean something.”

The Minnesota Soybean Growers Association is the nation’s longest-running soybean association because farmers and agribusinesses have recognized the value MSGA membership brings. ‘Faces of MSGA’ recognizes those members who actively promote Minnesota’s soybean industry.
