Dairy Nutrition Specialist
Having spent his whole life actively involved in dairy farming as well as studying it, Jon is well-prepared to provide solutions for the challenges of modern day agriculture. Jon grew up on his family’s dairy in Addison County, Vermont, where he developed a passion for dairy farming. This passion eventually lead to a career in nutrition, making him a perfect fit for Phoenix down the road. After earning an associate’s degree in Dairy Farm Management from Vermont Technical College, he went on to earn a bachelor’s degree in Animal Science from the University of Vermont.
Since graduation, Jon has spent two years involved in management on a large dairy, and the remainder of his career in sales and nutrition working with farms in Vermont and New York. In 2009, Jon joined the Phoenix team, and played a major role in developing the client base that makes Phoenix one of the strongest feed and nutrition suppliers in the Northeast. Jon resides in Addison, Vermont with his wife Roxanne and their five children.
