"To help livestock producers and farmers improve their efficiency and profits through my knowledge, products, and services."
I was raised on a farm near Payette, Idaho where I raised Angus cattle in 4-H and FFA. I graduated from the University of Idaho in 1971 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Animal Science with a Business Minor. I served my country for six years in the Idaho National Guard. I was in Agricultural Sales and Management for 32 years. My work experience includes the beef packing industry, the liquid and dry feed and nutrition industry, seed and animal health retail sales, and Idaho Cattlemen's Association Executive Vice President and lobbyist. I then worked 20½ years, from 1984 through 2004, for Merck/Merial as a Pharmaceutical Manufacturer Sales Representative, selling Ivomec and other large animal products. During my career, I have worked directly with farmers, ranchers, feedlot owners and managers, dairymen, veterinary clinics, dealers, and distributors throughout eight western states.
My experience in selling agricultural products, programs, and services in highly competitive markets, coupled with my strong industry knowledge, have helped prepare me for my career as a Farm and Ranch Real Estate Specialist, beginning in 2005.
I would appreciate the opportunity to assist you with any real estate related business.
