Hesston, KS – February 7, 2012– Ag 1 Source, the most trusted and reliable recruiting firm in the agriculture industry, today announced that Ron Hayden, based in Cassopolis, MI, will join the Animal Health/Nutrition and Livestock Production industry practice team.

“We are extremely excited about Ron Hayden joining the Ag 1 Source Team,” says Rick Rupp, Partner and Animal Health/Nutrition Industry Division Lead.  “Ron’s successful background in developing new markets in the livestock industry has given him tremendous insight into many of the leading animal nutrition and livestock operations across the Upper Midwest and Great Lakes Regions. We believe Ron will become a key business partner to our clients and candidates throughout this region.”

Upon entering the commercial Ag sector, Ron accepted a position as a 3 state Swine Feeds Consultant for the Farmland Feeds group, with primary responsibility for building a new territory, providing swine sales and tech service support for the Eastern Cornbelt cooperative feed dealers.  Ron received volume and margin growth awards each year of service.
