Cargill is eager to announce the addition of William Myers, PhD, as a Dairy Specialist for the New York and New England region. Myers holds a bachelor’s degree in biology from West Virginia University and a PhD in animal science from Cornell University. In his new role, Myers will lead technical trainings for his dairy teammates as well as provide technical support and troubleshooting for our dairy producers in the region.
“Cargill was my number one choice when searching for a career. I really love the progressive approach Cargill has towards sustainable agricultural practices and the company’s willingness to promote sustainable agriculture,” shares Myers. “Also, what stands out to me is the team mentality of Cargill’s Dairy Team, there's just a high level of communication and respect for one another.”
During Myers’ time earning his PhD, he focused on transition cow biology and fatty acid metabolism in the liver. Myers gained a unique expertise in transition cow biology, fatty acid metabolism, and choline utilization, focusing on nutritional strategies to mitigate metabolic disease and optimize production and well-being during the transition period.
“Myers brings a passion for learning and applying new research concepts, with the particular ability to break down complex topics and apply them on the farm,” says Mac Campbell, Cargill Tech Manager. “We are excited for William to share these skills with our customers—enhancing transition cow programs, problem solving, and identifying new opportunities for Cargill and our dairy farmers.”
