Phill Byerman has been with Chester since 2011. Phill was hired in as a service tech but has moved his way up to Service Manager. His high score on the advanced class shows he has been staying very engaged in the field and works hard to stay up to date on the continuous changes.

DaRick Madlung has been employed with us for nearly 14 years. In our Ag Division, we are all asked to complete many different tasks and wear different hats to help make the division run smoothly. DaRick does a great job with this. We ask a lot of DaRick and he never complains and always gets the job done efficiently and correctly.

“We are extremely proud of Phill and DaRick’s efforts and accomplishments,” says Aaron Shidler, Chester Ag Systems division manager. “The scores they earned reflect the knowledge and dedication of our entire division. Being a Valley Performance Plus dealer is a distinct honor we take very seriously, adds Shidler.” The prestige of having two of the best service techs in the country working for Chester Ag systems lends us credibility versus our competition. “It’s equally as credible knowing our customers are getting the very best services in the field at all times.” Shidler concluded.
