Ag & beef industry veteran to lead High Plains sales of corn and wheat residue forage to beef and dairy markets
AMARILLO, Tex. (April 12, 2016) — Pacific Ag, which operates the nation’s largest crop residue supply chain, today announced it has hired Brook Holstein Campbell, an agriculture and beef industry veteran, to lead sales efforts to the beef and dairy industry in the High Plains. Pacific Ag’s large scale operations and proven sustainable harvesting techniques result in a low ash product that can be delivered year-round, enabling dairies and feedyards a steady supply of affordable roughage that can now be secured on multi-year, stable price contracts.
Holstein Campbell brings more than 15 years of experience and relationships from across the livestock industry to Pacific Ag. Born and raised in Western Kansas, she graduated from Kansas State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Agribusiness. Her career in the livestock and beef industry includes serving as an Auditor for IMI Global , where she worked hand in hand with growers, feeders and finishers on production practices and procedues. She held a series of sales and brand management positions with Cargill Meat Solutions, where she managed the company’s multi-million dollar beef and pork sales account with companies including McDonalds and SYSCO.
“I’m thrilled to be joining the team at Pacific Ag,” said Campbell. “We have a great opportunity to offer financial benefits to growers as well as nutritional and cost benefits to feedlots and dairies, all through a common sense and sustainable approach to agriculture. I know from experience how important it is to the livestock industry to have a predictable and low cost supply of fiber, and Pacific Ag is well suited to meet those needs.”
Pacific Ag is the nation’s largest builder and operator of supply chains for agricultural residue, and now offers a high quality product, delivered via professional logistics at an affordable and predictable price.
High quality product
Pacific Ag has nearly 20 years of history in harvesting residue across the U.S, and has developed the harvest methods and expertise to preserve soil health that also results in reduced ash in the bale or ground stover.
For the past several years, Pacific Ag has worked in the High Plains region to develop a supply chain from the region’s plentiful source of residue from corn and wheat growers. The company has developed trusted relationships with hundreds of growers representing a significant supply of low cost fiber.
The operational efficiencies of scale mean that Pacific Ag can offer feed yard and dairy owners multi-year, fixedprice contracts that provide predictable returns, while reducing supply risk.
“Brook is well known and respected within the High Plains livestock community, allowing us to immediately connect with dairy and feedlot companies across the region,” said Levy. “Her combination of farming heritage, academic degree and management-level work in the beef industry is the perfect fit for her role with Pacific Ag. We’re thrilled to have her.”
Pacific Ag has been focused on residue harvests behind combines in wheat, corn, and grass seed crops for 18 years, providing a wealth of knowledge and in-field experience on which to help growers make individual, season-specific decisions about residue removal.
