TechMix has hired Chris Allen as Swine Territory Sales Representative. Allen joins TechMix with the last 18 years of his career focused in the swine industry. Over his career, he has guided the full scope of swine operations. From small, independent operations through large, integrated systems, Allen has partnered with these farms to identify products and management practices that fulfilled business objectives and were highly beneficial for enhancing pig welfare and performance. Key to his career successes to date are his listening, communication, negotiation and problem-solving skill sets. He strives to deliver value—seeking to understand a producer’s challenges first and then bringing a solution in a timely manner.  

Following 12 years of military service, Allen earned a degree in animal science from The Ohio State University. Upon graduation, he jump started his career in the swine genetics space. He has worked directly with operations across the Eastern Cornbelt and through Illinois and Iowa as manager of key accounts and in regional account management roles. Allen most recently worked as a county Extension educator through The Ohio State University, and his passion for helping swine operations directly achieve their goals is a driving factor for joining TechMix.  

“Chris is an excellent addition to our swine team. His experience and ability to work with producers of all sizes to develop and shape effective solutions is much needed in today’s pork marketplace!”, says Mike Nelson, TechMix president.  

TechMix has robust product line solutions that support swine performance during any phase of production. Allen's extensive experience will focus on TechMix products that maintain and improve a pig’s nutrient resilience during periods of disruption. These products include Baby Pig Restart, Nextein APF, Swine BlueLite, ImmuFend, and he will work with TechMix’s full line of drying agents including the newly reformulated Tech Dry+.
