Menges has decades of turkey experience from working with turkey growers across the country.
September 27, 2023
John Menges recently joined the Next Nest turkey technical team. Menges is one of the most passionate turkey specialists in the industry and is vocal about turkey welfare and the desire for continuous turkey performance improvement. His customer-focused mindset and desire to help provide solutions to the turkey industry will be valuable assets to the team. Next Nest said Menges’ experience and passion will help drive momentum as it grows and expands hatchery technology.
Menges spent the last few years with Best Vet Solutions (BVS). His decades of turkey experience were built by working in Pennsylvania, Virginia and with turkey growers across the country. He spent years of his career in turkey barns, observing, learning, and making needed changes to grow the best turkeys.
This extensive experience and close relationship with the industry has prepared Menges to lead Next Nest’s technical team to first research how to best prepare barns for birds already eating and drinking. It will also help educate the industry to execute the best practices he uncovers.
“John was a perfect fit when looking to grow our team because of his past experience and professional goals that aligned with our company goals of improving animal welfare, enhancing poult performance and positively impacting our customer’s bottom line,” said Peter Gruhl, sales director of Next Nest.
Next Nest Hatching is bringing the turkey industry the first ever commercial poult hatching equipment with immediate access to feed, water and light. Life-Science Innovations, the owner of start-up Next Nest, has been a part of the turkey industry for over 75 years as is absolutely committed to bringing positive technical change to the turkey industry and value to our partners and customers. Early nutrition for poults will trigger opportunities and challenges up and down the supply chain, and Menges is part of Next Nest’s commitment to ensure customers retain maximum value from their investment.
