Samuel Baucke – Samuel was born in Wray, CO, in 1992 and grew up on his family farm six miles north of Yuma, CO. On the farm, he was taught from an early age about the life and hard work of agricultural and took an interest in it. Sam helped his family on the irrigated and dryland operation, as well as hogs and cattle, all through high school and his time in college, and for four years full time post college before joining Godsey Precision Ag in January of 2019. While on the farm, he was able to gain both knowledge and experience in growing crops such as corn, wheat, sugar beets, edible beans, millet, forages, and canola. From this experience, he was also introduced to the business side of farming operations and economics as well.
Sam graduated from Yuma High School in 2011. From there, he continued his schooling at Northeastern Junior College for two years, studying Soil and Crop Science and obtaining his Associate’s Degree in 2013. Sam continued his education at Colorado State University and received his Soil and Crop Science Bachelor’s Degree in 2015. In addition to his degree, he also took courses in Ag Business and Economics at both NJC and CSU. Sam married his wife, Jasmine, in September of 2016 and together they have three children: Jaxton (6), Stryker (3), and their daughter Brexlynn (1). He enjoys being out in the fields day-to-day during the growing season and helping producers make their operations more efficient with the use of precision ag.
