DILWORTH, Minn. – Thunder Seed, Inc., a farmer-owned company focused on top genetic traits and high yields, has named John Sorby as its new general manager. Sorby brings more than 23 years of seed management experience to the position.

“I’m excited to be working with a family-owned company that has a strong focus on the success of growers in the region,” Sorby said. “The company has three great owners who have deep roots in the area’s agriculture.”

Sorby will help continue to expand the Thunder Seed business throughout North Dakota, Minnesota and South Dakota. He will work closely with the Thunder Seed team of district sales managers to provide personal support to growers in the area.

Sorby has held positions with several seed companies, including Agsco, WinField and, most recently, Pinnacle Agriculture, where he supported farmers in the northern half of the country, including the Midwest.

Sorby lives in Thompson, North Dakota, with his wife, Jera, and two children, Cole and Kaia. When he’s not talking seed, Sorby enjoys spending time with family on Lake Bell Taine in Minnesota.
