Colo native hired by Hurley & Associates

Hurley & Associates announces the hiring of Brandon Sowers as a farm marketing consultant in their Eldora office. Sowers is a licensed commodities broker and works closely with farm clients’ budgets, cash flow requirements and risk management strategies to reach a profitable conclusion to each crop year.

“Brandon is a wonderful addition to our team and we look forward to the added bench strength that will allow us to serve farmers out of the Eldora office,” said Trent Hurley, CEO of Hurley & Associates. “Brandon brings a maturity and calm demeanor to the job, which is necessary. We are delighted to have him on board!”

Sowers grew up on a family farm near Colo, where they raised corn, soybeans, hay, hogs and cattle. He graduated from Central College with a degree in biology and started his agricultural career in Ames, where he was involved in livestock pharmaceutical research. His experience also includes serving as county executive director for the USDA-FSA for eight years, where he was responsible for implementing and maintaining compliance on a variety of USDA farm programs.

Sowers joined Hurley & Associates in 2016 because of the commitment Hurley has to getting to know each client personally and because he likes Hurley’s customized individual approach to ag marketing and risk management. Sowers enjoys working with farmers and getting to know them as individuals, as well as getting to know about their farm operations.
