“I am thrilled to welcome Clay to our organization,” said John Dale, President of RP Nutrients, “with his deep roots in agriculture I’m certain our customers will benefit from his experience, knowledge and capability in his new role.”
Born and raised in Idaho, Stanger’s father was a farmer so you could say he grew up in the agricultural world. He has spent the last 14 years on the animal side working with custom-blend minerals and consulting on the silage side. In the last 4 years he has been involved in product and business development and is excited to work with nutritionists, dairies, and feed mills.
