Rod brings to Pacific Ag over thirty years of direct experience harvesting, baling and storing animal forage crops and crop residue. He is often referred to as the “baler whisperer” due to his extensive experience. Rod and his father set the standard and led the formation of the 600,000-ton annual Oregon grass straw harvesting industry beginning in the early 1980s. Based on the many years and millions of tons he has harvested, Rod brings extraordinary knowledge about grower relationships, harvest operations, equipment management and optimization, storage and overall supply-chain logistics. Given his unique talents, Rod has led harvests around the US, including Hawaii and parts of Central America.
