Charles Peterson, Dairy Production Specialist

Charlie brings a lot of ground level, on-farm practical knowledge and experience to the table to help customers increase efficiencies and therefore profitability.  “Profitability on a dairy is driven by three main biological factors: Overall good cow health, strong efficient reproduction and excellent nutrition” Charlie says.  “It’s like a three-legged milking stool.  If one of the three legs is broken, you fall over”.  Charlie adds “I’m excited to join the Munson Lakes team.  This a quality organization with quality people.  I look forward to working hard for my customers”.
