Brian Johnson and his wife Jamie live near Frankfort, South Dakota where they manage a diversified operation growing wheat, oats, barley, rye, corn, soybeans, cover crops, and KIDS! They have four children, Ella, Lila, Leo, and Evelyn. Their cow/calf operation utilizes rotational grazing through grass paddocks during summer months, and utilizes cover crops and corn residue for grazing in winter months. Brian has a B.S. in Ag-Business from SDSU, and is heavily involved in the conservation community as a Spink County Commissioner, assists with Spink County 4H, NRCS Voices for Soil Health, as well as the NACD Soil Health Network.

 

Johnson’s vision for the future of soil health on his operation is to “provide a sustainable business for our children to participate in and learn from, while also giving them the opportunity to experiment with different practices that improve the soil and landscape of our farm for years to come.”
