Dairy Nutrition Specialist
Having grown up in a small farming community in rural Ireland, Shane is a life-long farmer and adds an international perspective to Phoenix. As a young man, his family immigrated to the United States and is now living the American dream. Shane graduated with a degree in Sustainable Agriculture and Animal Science from the University of Maine, where he helped launch the UMADCOWS (University of Maine’s Agriculture Department Cooperative of Working Students) program. Through this, he was able to introduce the UMaine community to the world of agriculture. This helped grow Shane’s passion, as he loves working with people and helping them with their farms and herd health. Having a Master’s degree in business has also helped him in all aspects of the dairy industry, from breeding to management to nutrition.
In 2014, Shane joined the Phoenix Feeds & Nutrition team, hoping to continue his dedication to helping local farmers and New England’s dairy base. Shane lives in Randolph Center with his wife and daughter.
