Congratulations to Dave, the 2023 Friend of the Industry Award recipient. Dave grew up in agriculture where his dream of farming was unfortunately cut short. With that, Dave pursued a degree in agribusiness at the University of Idaho and began working at Farm Credit.
After 33 years with Farm Credit, Dave began working for Rabo AgriFinance to build their dairy portfolio. He said, "You hope after 40 years that you gave a little something to the industry, but the industry gave me so much more back."
Dave was recognized at the 2023 Dairy West Annual Meeting.
