Cole grew up in the small town of Dysart, Iowa. His love of production agriculture is rooted in a long lineage of farming going back generations on both sides of his family. He developed a strong work ethic and found his passion for agriculture at an early age helping with the production of corn, soybeans, and cattle on his grandparents’ farms. Cole graduated from Iowa State University with a degree in Agricultural Studies in 2020. Cole first started with Hurley & Associates as a Farm Marketing Consultant Intern in the summer of 2019 and began working full-time out of the Grundy Center, Iowa office in May of 2020. The company’s culture, strong Christian and family values, and the individualized, holistic approach to marketing led him to pursue his career with Hurley. Cole looks forward to working with producers to reduce risk and help them achieve their goals. In his spare time, Cole enjoys trap shooting, skiing, spending time outdoors, and helping on his grandparents’ farms.
