Employee Spotlight: Austin Marshek
From soil sampling to transportation intern to Iowa State graduate and now a member of our precision ag team, Austin Marshek is a familiar face to Stutsmans. Since starting full time in January, Austin hit the ground running in the precision ag division.
Growing up just down the road in Lone Tree, Austin’s agricultural roots run deep having grown up on his family’s farm working with pigs since he was nine years old. After high school he didn’t know what exactly he wanted to do besides work in agriculture and he liked technology. That’s how he landed in ag systems technology at Iowa State University where he graduated in December 2022.
