Faces of MSGA: Nate Stelling

Originally from northeast Nebraska, Nathan Stelling and his family moved to Osakis, Minn., in 1988.

Throughout their decades on the Todd County farm, the Stellings owned a dairy operation from 1996 to 2018, with a one-year break in between.

On top of the dairy operation, the Stellings continue to farm corn, soybeans and hay.

In 2019, Nate Stelling hosted a trade team from the Philippines at his farm in Todd County. 

The Stellings’ passion for the agricultural community can be seen through their local efforts. Nathan Stelling and his father, Tim, both serve on the Todd County Corn and Soybean Growers Association Board and are also members of the Minnesota Soybean Growers Association.

“We need to continue to have people involved,” Nathan Stelling said. “There is a lot of awareness that needs to be brought up countywide and statewide.”

The Todd County Board is active and invites schools from the St. Cloud area to a local farm to learn more about farming.

Aside from local efforts, Nathan Stelling believes in the importance of MSGA’s grassroots mission.

“It is imperative to be on top of those new laws that are coming through,” he said. “I think that’s worth in investing in to help build exports and build markets for our product.”
