Faces of MSGA: Jeff Tank

March-April 2021

Jeff Tank always knew he wanted to be involved in agriculture. Growing up on a farm just outside Cottage Grove, Minnesota, grit and dedication were instilled in Tank at a young age.

After graduating from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls, he worked as a research agronomist for a few years. Then an opportunity came knocking that Tank couldn’t turn down. He was offered a position in Dodge County to manage a farm – one of his career aspirations.

Jeff Tank is farm manager at Welsh Equipment in Dodge County.

After moving to Dodge County, Tank became involved in his local community and joined the Dodge County Corn and Soybean Growers Board. He’s been a member ever since.

“I have been on for 12 years and chairman for 10,” he says.

His passion for agriculture helped Tank stay active and led to his involvement in the Minnesota Soybean Growers Association. Tank supports MSGA and wants others to become involved in continued efforts to promote and defend agricultural policy in St. Paul and Washington, D.C.

“MSGA can be your voice to stand up for things that affect your livelihood,” he says. “I wish more people saw the value in membership and the numbers we could have and what they could do for policy issues.”
