Testimonials
"Whitesides Dairy has seen a positive impact from J&D’s ventilation system. We are seeing a significant lack of milk production dropping when we get into days where we have heat stress. Slug feeding has almost completely stopped, and cow are laying significantly more. Milk jumped ½ % higher in protein values without making any other changes other than adding fans."

ZACH PIRE
Territory Manager | Wisconsin & Illinois

Education: University of Wisconsin-Madison – Animal Science
Experience: Agriculture industry for 6 years

Key Projects:
Riverview (MN/SD), Kieler Farms (WI), Holsum Dairies (WI), Crave brothers (WI), Feltz Dairy (WI), Solhawk Dairy (WI), Lofty Acres Dairy (WI), Dolph Dairy (WI)

What sets me apart: Cow comfort is my passion! But I also believe my credibility as a Ventilation Expert is supported by my experiences working as a herdsman for multiple dairy operations. I have seen firsthand the effects of proper and improper management practices on the health and production of dairy cattle of all ages.

Notable Project:

Lofty Acres Dairy in Glenwood City, WI. Most Wisconsin farms steer clear of high pressure fogging due to the high humidity of our environment. Despite the uncertainty, we were able to install a successful HPF system that works in-line with the tunnel hybrid ventilation design in place. Even on the hottest, most humid days – the cows remain comfortable without any production loss. Unless there is fresh feed on the ground, you can count on all the beds being filled with cows laying and chewing their cud.

Territory Manager | Southeast US, Mexico, South America

Education: University of North Georgia – AS Business Financing
Experience: Agriculture and ventilation industries for 8 years

Key Projects:
North Dumas Dairy (6 – 10,000 cow crossvent barns in Dumas, Texas)
Crossroads Dairy (8 – 800 cow freestall barn ventilation retro job in Dublin, TX)
North Point Dairy (1000 cow freestall barn in Waynesboro, VA)

What sets me apart: I love working with farmers that think outside the box like I do to achieve high production goals and operating efficiencies. My foremost concern is animal wellbeing/welfare. Designing the correct system that allows our animals to thrive and produce at high rates is my job. My farmers and dealers will know I’m quoting and designing what is right for the animal, and in return will bring in the biggest returns on investments.

Notable Project:

Hillview Farms; we implemented very specific logic with their control setup to maximize fan efficiency, while also operating depending on certain weather conditions like rainy days, high humidity, or windy days.

What sets me apart: I am a dairy farmer. With my farm experience, I know what is best for the animals and what will get you the most product. I understand how the right ventilation can help farmers move forward.

Notable Project:

Calf barn in Ohio that wanted to build their facility differently to set them apart from the rest. We used exhaust fans, curtains, and roof vents all to be managed with the Pulse Controller. Farmer is very happy with the ventilation design and there are little to no respiratory issues.

Why should a customer trust you?
They shouldn’t! They should talk to and visit past projects that I have done. Let my work speak for itself.

Notable Project:

Si Ellen Dairy would be my most recent prominent project. It was a large 120 stall rotary and a 7,500 cow cross vent that I got to design ventilation from the ground up.

KIRK BRINCKS
Vice President of Sales & Marketing

Education: Iowa State University – Ag Studies
Experience: Agriculture Industry for 29 years

What sets me apart: I grew up on a farm, so I know the ins and outs. Right out of college I took an interest in ag ventilation. I have trained people about ventilation all over the world. Spoken at seminars about ventilation. I have also developed ventilation products. I’ve designed about every imaginable ventilation solution from 200 year old dairy barn conversations in Ukraine to 10,000+ cow cross vents to 16,500 head sow units. Designing for all species is interesting because the physics, targets, and tools of ventilation are the same but the variables are huge. We use calculations and simulations to assure the targets are achieved with the ventilation package.

Notable Project:

I designed a large bi-directional tunnel hybrid solution for an Idaho dairy that resulted in excellent airspeed, cooling, and air freshness.
