Listen in on our casual conversation with Phil Scott, a small business owner, family man, racecar driver, and public servant. A born and raised Vermonter, he understands the opportunities and challenges faced by small businesses in the state and offers his take on these issues.
I will start by quoting a dairy farmer whom I met early in my career, “it’s all about energy!” He was referring to his experience when working to get the best results from his herd. I have come to understand that he is right on so many levels. Recently I attended the 2015 Herd Health and Nutrition Conference, put on by New York’s Pro-Dairy and Northeast Agribusiness and Feed Alliance. This was the first time I was able to hear Dr. Mike Allen discuss the digestion of starch and how it relates to our dairy cattle. I am very familiar with Dr. Allen’s work and have quoted and implemented his findings often.
