We’re delighted to welcome livestock nutrition specialist Dr Cathy Bandyk as Ruminant Technical Manager for NAFTA, supporting customers across North America, Mexico and Brazil.
Working within the commercial ruminant team, Cathy will provide technical advice and information on our ruminant products – including liquid pre-treatment VistaPre-T and live yeast Vistacell.
A three-time Kansas State University graduate with a PhD in Ruminant Nutrition, Cathy brings to the role more than 20 years’ experience in industry, prior to which she owned and operated a crop and livestock farm.
Our North America Ruminant Commercial Manager Bruce Hageman explains that this combination of skills will prove invaluable within the role:
“Cathy’s diverse mix of academic, industry and personal business experience equips her with a unique understanding of different stakeholder perspectives. Her time in farm management means she will appreciate our customers’ needs and challenges – whilst her industry insights will prove valuable in helping to steer market-led research and development.”
A former AFIA Member of the Year, Cathy contributes to a number of the organisation’s committees across the fields of feed, ruminant nutrition and education. Her professional network is wide-ranging, encompassing participation in ARPAS, NCBA and the American Society of Animal Science.
