Schneider earned his Ph.D. degree from Kansas State University, master’s degree from Oklahoma State University, and bachelor’s degree from Iowa State University. 

“We are very excited to add to Jason to our outstanding technical team,” says John Sonderman, DNA Genetics business leader of Multiplication and Technical Services. “Jason brings a wealth of knowledge and valuable real-world experience in swine nutrition and technical service. We believe he will be instrumental in helping create value for our customers.”

Schneider was most recently the swine nutritionist for a large production system in Iowa. In that role, he oversaw the creation of an internal nutrition program which included diet formulations, management of their internal and external feed mill operations, and coordination with live production to meet key performance goals. Prior to that, Schneider worked in a swine nutrition and technical service role for a national feed supplier where he directed the nutrition program of various accounts consisting of 200,000 sows.

Schneider lives in Waverly, Iowa, with his wife, Kati. In his spare time he enjoys working on the family farm, wood working, hunting and fishing.
