Greg Kessel knows western North Dakota is special. He grew up in Belfield and has lived in Billings County for over 40 years. He’s a true conservative and an advocate for agriculture and energy production. He doesn’t just talk about the issues- he lives them.
After graduating college, Greg started his career in the oilfield, doing seismography, construction and trucking. He also began his first generation farm in the meantime, which evolved into a family-run seed business. He knows their importance to our economy and our way of life.
Throughout his career Greg started several other agricultural businesses, while continuing to be involved in his community. Small-town life is what makes North Dakota worth fighting for; Greg knows it takes effort and commitment for small communities to thrive. He has served on the local cooperative board for more than 25 years.
Beyond his local community, Greg has served on many boards, advocating for farmers, ranchers, and producers. The Northern Crop Institute, North Dakota Barley Council, National Barley Growers Association are just a few of the organizations he’s helped lead.
