PMI Nutritional Additives announces the addition of Keith Bolsen, Ph.D., professor emeritus at Kansas State University to its team of technical experts. A globally renown silage expert, Bolsen will work with dairy farmers and nutritionists to evaluate and adjust silage, product, harvest, storage and feed management practices to deliver on milk production goals.

“Keith brings an unprecedented depth of knowledge on silage management and cattle nutrition to our team,” says Michael Hearne, ruminant marketing manager, PMI Nutritional Additives. “Our goal is to provide our customers with industry-leading resources and expertise to reach their production goals, and Keith will help us accomplish this.”

With likely more hands-on silage experience than anyone, Bolsen is a globally recognized leader in silage safety and has lectured on silage in more than 40 countries, earning the title of The Silageman™. Bolsen recently founded a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting silage safety. The Keith Bolsen Silage Safety Foundation focuses on promoting safe silage management practices for bunker silos and silage piles, as well as providing educational resources and materials to the global silage industry.

“I’m looking forward to working with the PMI Nutritional Additives team because they are on the leading edge of technology,” says Keith Bolsen. “Together we will bring solutions to dairy farmers and cattle producers across the U.S., and make sure they get home safely to their families every night.”
