Ellen Wenninger grew up in Luverne on a show cow/calf operation. This is where her passion for agriculture is rooted and has grown substantially since. Ellen graduated from SDSU in December of 2018 with a degree in Business Economics, Finance, and Ag Business. Right after graduation she began her career at Compeer Financial as a Crop Insurance Agent. A year later, she made the move closer to “home” and started at Pro Ag. Ellen is our specialist in livestock insurance. She lives in Luverne, MN with her husband Skyler, son Cal, and dog Sota. Ellen and Skyler are expecting their second child in January 2024.   Lucas Peters brings over 10 years of crop insurance experience to Professional Ag Services. For the last 6 years, he was a lead marketing specialist with NAU Crop Insurance in southern MN and southern SD where his primary responsibilities included learning new products, training agents, and working with farmers through the entire crop insurance process. Adding an insurance specialist to the team at Pro Ag will help create and execute unique risk protection packages for each of our livestock and grain customers. Lucas graduated from SDSU with an agronomy degree and has worked for Syngenta and Pioneer in the past. Lucas lives in Luverne, MN with his wife Wendy, two daughters, and one dog. He grew up on a farm near Clark, SD and still farms with his parents growing corn and soybeans with a side project of growing popcorn and pumpkins.
