Vogel began his career teaching agriculture education at the high school level in Colorado. His career path took him from department manager at a tillage equipment company, to a position as agronomy manager at several CHS locations.

In 2016, Vogel and his family moved to North Dakota where he began at Cando Farmers Grain & Oil as the agronomy manager. He then advanced into the general manager position where he led Cando Farmers Grain & Oil through a successful merger with another cooperative into Legacy Cooperative in Bisbee, N.D.
