Thomas Keast emigrated with his family from England in the 1870s to start a new life on a family farm near Macedonia, Iowa. Roughly a century later, Russell Keast followed in the family farming tradition by earning an Agricultural Mechanization degree from Iowa State University and returning to work on the farm. In 1985, Russ also began selling agricultural equipment, and soon became a dealer for numerous farm equipment manufacturers.
Throughout his agriculture career, Russ has supported and sponsored numerous community events and served on the Agriland FS Board of Directors for more than 30 years. Russ has received recognition numerous times for his service and ag industry expertise, including the Ed Kleen Stewardship Memorial Award for outstanding contribution to soil conservation, agriculture, and the community in 1992. With over three decades of farming and equipment sales experience, Russ continues to love agriculture and the people in it.
