Terry Wright


EHS Sr. Specialist




After graduating from the University of Minnesota, Morris in 1997 I began working for Harvest States in Mitchell, SD in their management trainee program.  During my time with them I worked my way up to grain terminal/feed department manager.

I began my career with Cargill in 2002 when I joined their Animal Nutrition division.  I began as an experienced management trainee and worked in this division of Cargill for about 6 years.  My time managing feed mills took my family on a journey through 4 states (IA, NE, MT & UT).

In 2009 my family and I wanted to get closer to home after the passing of my father in law.  To accomplish this, I transferred to the grain division of Cargill.  I managed elevators in SD, MN & IA over the next 10 years while living in Sioux Falls, SD.

In 2019 I took my passion for safe workplaces, employee development and plant efficiency moved into to the environmental health and safety (EHS) division of Cargill.  I now travel to grain and feed facilities in IA, NE, SD & MN supporting them in the world of EHS.
