Having been involved in agriculture for most of his life, Pyle currently farms more than 3,200 acres of soybeans, corn and wheat. He was an owner and director of Gold Country Seed from 1990-2006, and director of Golden Growers Cooperative from 1995-2010.

"I am really looking forward to being part of the North Dakota Soybean Council as a board member," Pyle said. "It's a great opportunity and I am honored to represent my fellow soybean farmers in Cass County, the largest producing county of soybeans in the entire country."
He is married to Marlyce Pyle.
North Dakota soybean farmers across the state are represented on the North Dakota Soybean Council Board, which oversees a grassroots promotion, research and marketing program funded by soybean checkoff dollars. The Council's mission is to create an environment through investing soybean checkoff funds to increase profit potential for North Dakota soybean producers. The North Dakota Soybean Council policies are established by a board consisting of eight soybean growers. The Council is organized by North Dakota State law.
