RON KUBER, PAS
Serving the dairy and beef industry has been Ron’s life work. After graduating from Cal Poly - San Luis Obispo, he learned sales from one of the best, Dick Bannon, whose greatest lesson was customer service: listen, learn, suggest a solution, and never - ever - offer a service or product that doesn't make sense.
Ron followed that credo in positions leading to Connor Agriscience, and customer service stands as our cornerstone. Ron's scientific understanding of making and managing forages was fostered by Dr. Bob Charley and Dr. Keith Bolsen. Saving farmers money through better feeds and more of them are his goal.
He is a Professional Animal Scientist (PAS) through ARPAS and a past California Holstein Association board member. He is a member of the Clovis FFA Advisory Council and is a volunteer for the 2017 National Dairy Challenge.
Connie grew up on Sapa Ska Farm, home to a small Minnesota Registered Holstein herd. After earning her U of MN Agriculture Journalism degree, she ventured to California to promote US genetics for World-Wide Sires. Connie met Ron at World Dairy Expo and they married in 1983. When their eldest daughter was born she shifted to freelance writing for US and European dairy publications.
She works to provide resources and learning experiences to farmers and ranchers. Having grown up a farmer's daughter, she understands the demands of livestock agriculture. She is a member of the Clovis FFA Advisory Council and Public Relations Co-Chair of the Western Regional Dairy Challenge Committee and is a current committee co-chair for the 2017 National Dairy Challenge.
Experience in the California ag industry, coupled with his belief in customer service, are qualities that clients love about Joe. Ron and Joe met as boys at the neighbor's ropings and roundups, and later as Alpha Gamma Rho brothers at Cal Poly - San Luis Obispo. Joe’s positions with the The Upjohn Company and Virtus Nutrition have given him a solid background in bovine physiology and management.
Of particular value is his understanding and experience in dairy cattle reproductive and productive health and it’s connection to nutrition and quality feed. He is well-versed in the science of making and managing forages. Joe joined the Connor Agriscience team as an Associate in 2009 and we appreciate his service to his clients and his loyalty.

He knows how important it is for his clients to have the products they need when they need them, at a value that is profitable for them.

Eric grew up on his family's Central California ranch, experiencing all aspects of a profitable dairy: cow care, feeding, breeding, equipment maintenance, and growing crops. Eric worked with us during his Fresno State University Dairy Science career, and we appreciate his practical knowledge and willingness to learn more. Eric's ability to listen and solve problems is a strong suit. He understands and enjoys the science of forage making and management, and is eager to help farmers make profitable use of it.
