Personal Info

I grew up in Orland, CA on a dairy farm that my family still operates today. We have a milking herd of 400 cows of both Holstein and Brown Swiss breeds. I attended college at Chico State where I was a member of the livestock judging team. After receiving my BS in animal science, I moved up to Pullman, Washington where I specifically focused on the field of ruminant nutrition at Washington State University. After earning my MS in animal science, I took a job working for Purina Mills as a dairy nutritionist in upstate New York for three years. I then moved back to the West coast where I have had the opportunity to teach here at CSU, Chico as well as continue my work as a private dairy nutrition consultant.
