TechMix Global has hired Michael Reid, PhD in the role of International Ruminant Health Manager. The global footprint of TechMix has expanded significantly in recent years and Michael will be instrumental in bringing extensive technical and direct research expertise to TechMix ruminant customers and producers. Dr. Reid will also have commercial responsibilities with some key distribution and manufacturing partners in Europe. Additionally, he will be working closely with current TechMix team members to implement educational and training programs for commercial customers and at the farm level.

Michael will also work closely with the TechMix global innovations team offering insights into product development and research with technologies that will have greatest impact in support of producer goals for production and performance.

Dr. Reid received his PhD from Queens University Belfast/Teagasc focusing his principle research on milk yield, composition and the efficient use of nitrogen for milk processing in supplemented dairy cows and is now based in Cork, Ireland. In his most recent job at Nutribio, Ltd., Michael was Business Development Manager and worked to build significant international business relationships and manage key accounts. His combination of skill sets will make Michael a highly valuable asset for ongoing TechMix business growth and a regarded ruminant resource for all partners. Michael also has experience in writing grants for specific research funding and a keen acumen for reading data, conducting research, evaluating Key Performance Indicators (KPI) and managing personnel.

“Dr. Reid will add another level of elevation in our global research and product development expertise. His credentials and experience will raise the conversation about our full line of non-pharma products designed to support both veterinarians and producers alike. Michael values efficient ruminant performance and animal welfare and is highly dedicated to helping customers at every level achieve their goals. With the marketplace changing so rapidly, his expertise will be a tremendous asset to TechMix”, says David Muysson, TechMix COO / Director International.
