Cole Ketterling was the North Dakota State FFA president in 2017-2019. Today, Ketterling is a loan officer for Farm Credit Services while farming with his family. “My SAE was diversified crop production in raising corn, soybeans, spring wheat, sunflowers, and also a little bit of livestock production with a few cow-calf pairs. I’ve had some significant milestones like when I won my proficiency nationally when I was a senior in high school in crop production, and I also was a State Farmer and National Farmer.” Ketterling credits his FFA advisors Rocky Brown and Kristy Tonneson for giving him the tools to succeed. “They both had a big impact on my life, mostly just teaching me work ethic and teaching me how to be well prepared in everything I do.”
