    About Me

    Justin grew up in the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia, where he was involved in beef, sheep, and poultry production. Justin’s draw to agriculture came from his parents work with the WV USDA NRCS and his involvement in his local FFA.

    After graduating high school, he attended Potomac State College of West Virginia University where he studied Animal and Nutritional Sciences and Agribusiness Management. He received his Bachelors of Science in Agriculture at West Virginia University in Animal and Nutritional Sciences. He then continued to receive a Master’s of Science in Plant and Soil Science with a focus in phosphorous management.

    Justin worked at WVU for three years as graduate student and as a researcher. He was a member of a teaching group who instructed proper use of nutrient management planning software and strategies to members of West Virginia State and Federal agencies.

    Justin is excited to be working in Butler County and looks forward to meeting and helping as many producers as possible.
