St. Joseph, MO – BioZyme Inc, manufacturers of natural supplements and feed additives for a variety of livestock, has promoted Blaine Rodgers, Sanger, Calif., to Show Livestock Business Development & Field Support.
In his new role, Rodgers will assist with developing the educational pieces for youth and continue to educate young livestock exhibitors on how BioZyme products can benefit their animals; work with national branded show feed companies to position the BioZyme feed additives and supplements; and will work with the area sales managers to provide further understanding on products developed specifically for show animals and help them look at young exhibitors as potential customers, now and in the future.
“I grew up a product of the livestock show industry, and have seen first-hand how it can sculpt and mold young people into leaders in our business. It is fun to work with all levels of experience, from the youth who have no experience, but want to learn, to the very competitive exhibitor,” Rodgers said. “This position will also allow me to work with others across the country that I have built relationships with over the years, in addition to the exhibitors on the West Coast.”
Rodgers joined the team at BioZyme as an Area Sales Manager in 2014. He earned his Bachelor’s in Animal Science from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, and was a member of the Modesto Junior College and Cal Poly livestock judging teams. He and his wife, Melissa, and two daughters also raise and show cattle and pigs.
“Adding the new business development folks, in the areas of beef, dairy, pig/poultry and show livestock, will allow BioZyme to continue to serve our current and future customers through expertise in animal nutrition that gets to them at their level and with their expectations in mind. These roles will provide technical expertise including communicating the value of Amaferm® and AO-Biotics™, investigating and resolving production challenges, assisting with field sales and trade shows and acting as the technical sales interface between the customer and the Company,” said Lisa Norton, Vice President of BioZyme. “Blaine is an experienced, passionate leader in his field. BioZyme is blessed to have him and is excited about how he will guide us in our future of providing ‘care that comes full circle.’”
