Matt grew up in Gillespie, IL and moved back to the area about four years ago when he started working for Borgic Farms, Inc. located in Raymond, IL.
His primary role is overseeing the grow-finish production system. He works closely with more than 45 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, cull sows.
Today, Matt lives on a small farm in Gillespie, IL is active in The First United Methodist Church of Gillespie and spends as much time as possible with his two daughters, Natalie and Paige.
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.
