James Wurtz joins the Livestock Recruiting Group at Ag 1 Source with over 10 years of experience in Agricultural sales and service. His territory focus includes Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri, Kansas, Colorado, Wyoming, and North and South Dakotas. James will work with nutrition, animal health, reproduction, and livestock production operations to find top talent in the areas of sales, marketing, management, technical service, nutritionists, and other key personnel.
James brings to Ag 1 Source a strong background of experience in genetics and sales management from his work with ABS Global focusing heavily in the dairy sector. After graduating from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, he started as an A.I. technician building up the business in the West Texas region. Quickly he was promoted into a direct sales management role. Given an opportunity to be back in his home state of Nebraska, James later managed a six state territory overseeing direct sales managers and wholesale dealers, while developing an uncharted new territory for Accelerated Genetics.
Currently, James resides on the farm he grew up on outside of Omaha, Nebraska with his wife Jessica and three children. In his spare time, James is deeply involved with local 4-H organizations and FFA chapters. He also is an avid outdoorsman and enjoys waterfowl and whitetail deer hunting.
