Nobis Agri Science new hire announcement

Nobis Agri Science is pleased to welcome Xavier Suarez as a dairy nutrition and management consultant. Suarez joins the team with a background in calf and heifer management and a strong passion for the dairy industry.

Suarez was born outside of Quito, Ecuador where he developed his passion for dairy cows and the dairy industry. In 2007, he graduated with a bachelor’s degree in animal science from Zamorano University, Honduras. He continued his studies at Penn State University working in Dr. Jud Heinrichs' lab where he obtained a master’s degree in 2011 and then a doctoral degree in 2014, both in animal science.

During his time at Penn State University, Suarez worked on many projects and has published articles regarding late lactating and non-lactating cows, heifers, and calves. His doctoral studies focused on the effects of particle size in calf starter on rumen development.

Prior to joining Nobis Agri Science, Suarez spent 6.5 years as a calf and heifer specialist for Provimi. Through his role at Provimi, he gave technical support in the upper Midwest and was also responsible for conducting studies with the Provimi Nurture Research Center Team.

Though he loves his work, Suarez still enjoys time away from the field. He is an avid outdoorsman and spends much of his free time running, hiking or hunting.

The company is confident that Suarez will be a strong asset to its nutrition team and looks forward to the expertise he brings in calf and heifer management.
