"We wanted to be better than the national companies and the other independent consulting groups."
Evan and Nathan previously worked for a national nutrition company. They found that they were limited by the lack of flexibility, while being required to sell products rather than provide solutions. They both decided to become independent consultants, and they ultimately partnered to form Barton Kiefer Dairy Consulting.
They find satisfaction in providing custom solutions to some of the largest dairy farms in the country.
