Matt has served as an IPPA at-large director for 3 years, and he is currently serving as Secretary. He is active on the Expo, State Fair, and Marketing committees.
He works for Borgic Farms, Inc. in Raymond, IL, where his primary role is overseeing the grow-finish production system. He works closely with more than 50 Grower Partners in Illinois and Iowa ensuring pigs are being cared for and the farms have the resources they need. Matt also works with the team at the sow farm, as well as manages all of the logistics that go with moving weaned, feeder, market hogs, and cull sows.
Today, Matt and his wife, Brittany, live on a small farm in Gillespie, IL with their five children: Natalie, Paige, Landon, Holden & Owen. He is an active member of the First United Methodist Church of Gillespie and is involved in the Mission Work Team.
Matt is looking forward to being more involved in IPPA, continuing to learn, and helping farms and families achieve the goals they’ve set for themselves.
