I’m originally from Orange City, IA.I joined Farmers Coop Society after college in 2011 as a Swine Specialist. Two years later I moved into my current position as Swine Production Manager. My favorite part of my job with Farmers Coop Society is overseeing herd health and production in order to provide the highest quality care for the animals under our control, which in turn increases profitability for the owners and investors in the facilities we oversee.
Certifications: Pork Quality Assurance Advisor and Transport Quality Assurance Advisor
I’m originally from Sheldon, IA. I joined Farmers Coop Society in 2009, working out of the Sanborn location. After four years, I transitioned into the role of Swine Marketing Specialist for the financed groups in Sioux Center. In addition to working at FCS, I also labor a hog confinement near Sheldon. My favorite part of my job with Farmers Coop Society is helping our producers find their true cost of production and trying to make systems more efficient for them.
I was born and raised on a farrow to finish hog farm a few miles east of Hospers, IA. I went to high school in Orange City before graduating and going through undergrad and vet school at Iowa State University. I graduated from ISU in 2014 with my Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine. I have been married to my wife Megan for 11 years and we have been blessed with 4 boys. We live on an acreage near Alton, IA. I started with Farmers Coop Society in late 2019 as veterinarian for the Proven Swine Management team. Before joining FCS I worked as an associate veterinarian for Orange City Vet Clinic for 5 years.
My favorite part of this job is working with an elite team of service managers and caretakers to diagnose and prevent health issues in our barns. I enjoy developing protocols to address potential health challenges before they impact the animals under our care.
I’m originally from Pierson, IA but I currently live South of Ireton with my husband and two children. I have been working in the Swine Industry since 1995, when I was a Farrowing Manager for Iowa Select Farms for a 4,000 head sow farm. I did this for two years until I became the Farm Manager for Pork Elite, west of Ireton. This was a 2,400 head sow farm and I worked there for three years. I came to Farmers Coop Society in 2000 and have been a swine specialist/Contract Labor Coordinator ever since. My favorite part of working at FCS is the people. I enjoy everyone I work with and all the customers that I can help on a daily basis.
