Agri-Nutrition Consulting, LLC, hired Anne Proctor, PhD of Junction City as a dairy technical specialist.
In this position, Proctor will use her observation skills to draw out strengths and opportunities that she sees on-farm and will implement ways to deliver success for the farmer and ANC consultants.
Proctor grew up on a farm in the heart of Vermont’s dairy industry. She received her bachelor’s degree in biological sciences from the University of Vermont, her master’s degree from the University of Delaware in animal science, researching silage additives, and her PhD with David Combs in dairy science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, studying feed intake regulation in dairy cattle.
Before joining ANC, she worked for five years with Purina Mills in Colorado, western Kansas, and Wisconsin as a PhD consultant, and for Customer One and Heartland Cooperative in central Wisconsin for six years.
Proctor enjoys helping dairy farmers be successful by listening to their needs and finding solutions that fit their goals. She also knows it’s important to meet the cow’s needs as well, by focusing on cow comfort, environment, social dynamics, and behavior.
