Doug Sawatzke, Sales Nutritionist

We Manufacture What Fits Your Needs
What works best for the customer and their herd drives Doug’s efforts. He focuses on meeting unique and individual customer needs. “I only want to produce for them what they need and want,” he says, “not simply what we’d like to sell.”

Doug often professes how proud he is to work for Munson Lakes Nutrition. “We’re good for our customers,” Doug explains. “This company emphasizes personalized service and employee expertise. It has very high moral and ethical standards.

“Plus, we offer business efficiencies. A lot of feed dealers rely on a manufacturer for all their products. We have our own mill and we have commodity purchasing skill to offer a variety of ingredients and pass along savings and discounts to customers.”

For Doug, business relationships and friendships run close together. He loves to help his customers earn profits. “I’m passionate about ration formulation and I look at each customer’s herd as if it were my own,” he says.

Doug grew up on a dairy, beef, hog and crop farm near Waverly. His hopes to be involved in the family farm had to change when his father passed away young.

From the moment Bob Munson hired him in 1985 to work in the delivery fleet, Doug’s hope was to eventually join the sales team. He got that opportunity when another salesman retired.

He blends knowledge gained from growing up on the farm, taking as much short course work as he can, and a lot of common sense to assist customers with problems and issues in herd health, reproduction and milk production. Doug and his wife, Jenell, live near Annandale. They have two daughters, Kelly and Kristal, a son,Turner and a daughter-in-law Chelsey. Jenell, a florist, owns Posey Patch Flowers and Log Cabin Gifts in Howard Lake.
