Everett Dixon

Education: B.S.A. in Animal Science, U of Manitoba; MSc in Animal Physiology (Bioenergetics), U of Alberta

Everett grew up in a small town in the North Okanagan of British Columbia.  As a young boy, he spent as much time as possible on his Uncle’s dairy farm located in East Central Alberta.  The summers spent on the farm instilled a love for farming and animals that influenced his choice of education and career.

His animal nutritionist experience comes from working 30 plus years in several mills across British Columbia and Alberta. This time has been spent working with and formulating feed for all types of farm animals. This has given Everett the broad knowledge of nutrition for several species. Regular attendance at national animal nutrition seminars, workshops, online courses, and zoom meetings keeps Everett abreast of new developments in animal nutrition.

As part of the “The Top Shelf Team”, Everett enjoys working with animal owners to reach their goals. His ever-changing role included and not limited to making feed recipes that meet animal requirements, checking the quality of incoming grains and other ingredients, working closely with vets regarding animal health problems, making farm visits, balancing grain rations to farm forages, and providing nutrition advice in person or over the phone, and speaking to 4H groups and other producer groups regarding nutrition.
