Dr. Ilkyu Yoon

Diamond V recently named Dr. Ilkyu Yoon the recipient of the company’s President’s Award, which is given to individuals who have demonstrated exceptional, sustained contributions to the company. Dr. Yoon, Director of Ruminant Research and Technical Support for Diamond V, has been with the company for over 23 years and leads Diamond V’s dairy research, having spearheaded numerous new product and technical developments during his tenure at the company.

"Ilkyu’s leadership in the development of Diamond V’s RAMM, or Rumen Activity Modifier Model has taken the company’s technical expertise to a whole new level," says Don McIntyre, Director of Global Research & Technical Service for Diamond V. "His insights have laid the foundation for NutriTek, our most advanced dairy technology and have also driven the creation of our Intestinal Activity Modifier Model (IAMM).”

In addition to his technical and research prowess, Dr. Yoon was also honored for his role in helping the company expand globally. Mike Goble, Global Managing Director & President of Diamond V adds:

“Ilkyu was also instrumental in helping Diamond V successfully expand our technologies and educate both our teams and industry partners around the world. As we began to expand, he packed his bags and left Iowa to physically support those regions – building the business holistically from the ground up and solidifying himself as an integral part of those teams.”
