Michael Fast always dreamed of being a farmer and rancher. Having grown up on a cattle and crop operation near Yale, SD, his dreams became reality at the early age of 15, when his parents, Wayne and Cheri, gave him the opportunity to buy some cattle and invest in the family business. Since then, Fast has quickly grown as a producer and agriculture professional, handling the ups and downs of this career path with a quiet determination and confidence recognizable in an industry leader.

In just a few weeks, Fast will return home to the family operation full-time after he graduates from Lake Area Technical Institute (LATI) with a degree in agriculture production. Fast shared his insights on the future of agriculture for himself and other young, aspiring producers, and he offers some thoughtful advice on making a mark in this challenging, exciting industry.
