Hurley and Associates announces the Hiring of Cassie Galm
September 21, 2016

Charleston, MO (September 20, 2016)  Hurley & Associates announces the hiring of Cassie Galm as Farm Marketing Consultant in their Glenwood, MN office.  Cassie 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.

“We are so pleased to have Cassie on the Hurley team," said Trent Hurley, CEO of Hurley & Associates.  “She will allow us to increase our ability to service more farmers and will be helping producers in Glenwood, Wheaton and surrounding areas in Minnesota as well as areas in North Dakota. It is exciting to have a new team member who is so excited about the future of agriculture.”

Cassie grew up in Spencer, IA working on the family farm. Her passion for agriculture first began at her grandparent’s cow-calf operation bottle feeding calves and riding in the tractors at harvest time. It grew when she began showing livestock at the local county fair, and she has developed a small show stock partnership with her younger sister. They raise hogs and Boer goats that are shown by area 4H and FFA members at the local, state and national levels.

Cassie attended Iowa Lakes Community College in the Ag Transfer program on a golf scholarship where she received her AA degree. She then continued on to Iowa State University and graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree and Certification in Agriculture Education.

During her internship with Hurley & Associates the summer of 2015, Cassie was impressed the individualized approach to risk management marketing and the strong family values the company upheld. Her mission before Hurley & Associates was to, “Arm students with the necessary knowledge and skills to run a successful family farm or find a career they are passionate about in the agricultural industry.” Now her goals have adjusted to, “Alleviate some of the stress of marketing grain and livestock off of the producer so that they can continue to focus on their passion for farming and grow that passion in younger generations.”

She likes to spend the majority of her free time outside hunting, fishing, playing sports, and cooking. Most of all she likes to return home to see family and friends, help with the farming operation and prep livestock for the show ring. Having grown up submerged in the agricultural world, Cassie believes that her passion, hard work, education, and understanding of farming operations will help her build strong, working partnerships with her clients.
