Raised on a farm west of Loring, Lang was educated in Malta schools. Married for 38 years, he and wife Lorna (Anderson) have lived in Malta, Zortman, Wolf Point and Miles City and through out those experiences, gained a great knowledge and appreciation of eastern Montana. Their three children (Micah, Lisa and Lindsay) were raised and educated in Malta and they enjoy four wonderful grandchildren.
Lang established Northern Ag Service in 1981 at it's original location in downtown Malta. Under his leadership, the business expanded to a site east of Malta and grew to 12 employees. Providing agriculture expertise along with fertilizer, chemicals, cattle feed, supplies and equipment to farmers and ranchers throughout central and northeast Montana, it became a mainstay in the industry and was sold in 2007 to Milk River Cooperative.
Continuing under the name of Norther Ag Service, Lang has diversified into irrigation and other specialized equipment and services.
An active community member, Lang has been President of both the Malta Area Chamber of Commerce and PhillCo Economic Growth Council and serves as board member for the Phillips County Conservation District.
