Jonathon is a 6th generation farmer from North Texas where he and his family grew wheat, cattle, and pecans. Jonathon graduated from Texas A&M University in 2005 with a degree in Agricultural Development with an emphasis in beef cattle and dairy science. After college he sold chemicals, seed, and fertilizer before moving on to Texas Farm Bureau where he served 8 years as a field representative. He specialized in assisting producers with legislative and regulatory issues that faced Texas agriculture.
In 2014 he returned to his roots in production agriculture farming corn, cotton, and wheat along with running a cow/calf and stocker operation in the black lands of Central Texas. He grew to love the challenge marketing and logistics provided in dealing with his physical products. In 2018 he joined Daniels Trading as a series 3 broker with a desire to help farmers and ranchers deal with the same challenges he faces on a daily basis with his own farm.
