Matt Johnson and his wife, Devyn, and their 7 children relocated back to the midwest and founded Cardinal Ag in November of 2019. Cardinal Ag was founded to provide growers with a locally owned business partner to provide agronomic recommendations and services based on current needs and future regulatory requirements. Matt focuses on understanding the ever-moving dynamics of agriculture and developing practical programs for growers to increase fertilizer stewardship, improve operational efficiencies, bolster yield, and increasing conservation efforts. Matt’s guiding principle is to justify the Cardinal Ag’s presence in your operation through his LEARN SERVE GROW approach. Matt brings his successful retail experience in the agricultural sales industry with a proven growth success.
Dan Smith joins Cardinal Ag after a decade of experience in the agricultural world selling agricultural equipment. His passion for bringing technological advancements to the farm gate led him to Cardinal Ag as a Partner and Owner Operator. Dan’s passion for finding innovative approaches to unlock value for the farmer on the input and technical levels led Dan to move into the retail and services sector. Dan, his wife of 13 years, and his 3 children are his motivation to build Cardinal Ag into a legacy they are proud of.
