Dan Trullinger was a Sales Agronomist, who worked for Crystal Valley for 11 years. Dan attended college at SDSU, graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree in Agronomy. He interned for La Salle Farmers Grain (LSFG) prior to the merger with Crystal Valley, and his first job was in Tyler, MN as an Agronomist in 2004. In 2006, he returned to his hometown of Madelia, where he started working for Crystal Valley. On May 21, 2017, Dan’s life tragically ended as a result of a car accident.


Dan was a great mentor to his interns and took pride in watching them develop their Agronomic skills. In his honor, Crystal Valley created the Dan Trullinger Memorial Scholarship in the amount of $2,000 to be presented an outstanding intern. This year’s scholarship was awarded to Taylor Schultz.

Taylor Schultz is the daughter of Jeff and Kaprice Schultz of Wells. She is entering her first year at South Dakota State University majoring in Agronomy. Taylor spent her summer working in Madelia with the Precision Ag Team.  

Congratulations to Taylor!
