Terry Schiltz

President/CEO

Raised on a farm near Wessington, SD, Terry’s entrepreneurial spirit developed at a young age - his father was a farmer, inventor and businessman. Shortly after graduating from South Dakota State University he co-founded Schiltz Manufacturing, which manufactures unique grain bin unloading systems utilizing a patented design that was developed by him and his father. After selling the business, he moved to Denver and formed a company that marketed and sold telecommunications devices and services. His understanding and passion for both the Ag and Telecommunications industries led him back to South Dakota in 2003, where he became a partner in AgSense.
