Ellen Schlechter

Ellen grew up in central South Dakota in a family with strong farming and ranching roots as both sides of her family run farming operations. Ellen has spent her formative years involved in all aspects of the operation alongside her father, brother, sister, cousins, and uncles. She quickly learned how to work with a plethora of personalities while maneuvering through farm decisions. Ellen’s passion for agriculture and her strong work ethic are two traits she brings to the Hurley table.

She attended South Dakota State University majoring in Agriculture Business and Business Economics with a minor in Agriculture Marketing. Ellen’s talent for working with technology enabled her to develop a cattle record-keeping app used by her family farm and others around the world.

She spent most of her summer breaks on the farm but spent a month in Barcelona, Spain working as a consulting intern at a business-wellness startup company. The following summer, she interned as a Farm Marketing Consultant at Hurley and Associates and joined their team.

Ellen values building relationships and giving back to the community. With that same mindset, she looks forward to partnering with producers to grow their operations for generations to come.
