Long Prairie livestock hauler ‘goes to bat’ for his customers
Monday, March 06, 2017
After growing up on a dairy farm, there was one thing Ed Wettstein of Long Prairie knew — he didn’t want to milk cows.
In fact, back in the 1970s when technology started moving toward computerizing most things, he followed the trend. He went to school to become a computer programmer.
“I figured that was the way to go,” he said.
But after two years of working as a computer programmer in the Twin Cities, the company he worked for moved to Arizona. Even though he could have followed the job, Wettstein chose to remain in Minnesota. After all, it was home and where the people he knew were.
“I returned to the Long Prairie area and knew I wanted to farm instead, but not milk cows,” he said.
