About Us How it all began
CashCow was created by Scott, a farmer.
Scott grew up farming on the family farm in Andover, South Dakota. After college he got a job on Wall Street, where he worked in investment banking. While on Wall Street, Scott built spreadsheets modeling out financial statements, forecasting mergers and acquisitions activity.
When his dad retired, he moved back to the family farm. Using the knowledge he obtained while on wall street he created an enormous spreadsheet to help manage the fields and “run each field like a separate business.” This tool calculated his costs to grow each bushel by field so he could make better management decisions, and market his grain at a profit.
After seeing commodity markets fall, Scott wanted to take his complex spreadsheet and help his neighbors and other farmers. So that’s exactly what he did, now anyone can use CashCow to help with managing and marketing their grain.
