For more than 40 years, John Goihl has been a nutritionist and owner/president of Agri-Nutrition Services, a direct service company serving feed manufacturers, larger livestock producers, ranchers, and vendors to the feed and livestock industry. He also does nutritional consulting throughout the U.S. and world. Prior to that, he was a nutritionist for two regional feed companies in Minnesota and Iowa. Goihl is a member of the American Society of Animal Science. He also has served as the industry co-chairman of the Minnesota Nutrition Conference for more than 20 years. Goihl writes a bimonthly newsletter to swine producers and is a monthly contributor to Feedstuffs’ “Bottom Line of Nutrition” swine nutrition articles. He received his advanced nutrition degree from the University of Minnesota and was raised on a livestock farm in southeast Minnesota.

“Applied research has been part of my career interest since I was a 4-H and FFA member,” says Goihl.  “Using basic and applied nutrition research results and applying them to livestock production is part of being a livestock nutritionist. When the opportunity came along to represent agribusiness in Minnesota as well as Minnesota pork producers on the AURI board, I could visualize AURI being that vehicle to continue my interest in research and to assist different agriculture-related enterprises and/or small businesses in rural Minnesota.”

When asked what projects are of most interest to him, Goihl noted that “All of AURI’s projects are interesting, but the biggest win I’ve seen would be the many projects related to ethanol including the coproducts and related projects that come from ethanol.”
