Experience Delivering Success®


Experience only brings value when it is shared. The nutritionists that make up GPS Dairy Consulting are proven leaders in their respective areas with vast experience and a solid reputation for delivering quality service and positive results to their clients. At GPS Dairy Consulting we share our experience with each other as colleagues; we share our experience as coaches and mentors for each other; and, we share our experience with our clients, their managers and their employees. Building upon the experiences of all of us we are able to bring the power of the entire GPS Dairy Consulting team to every dairy we work with.




In order to deliver anything you must first take personal ownership. GPS Dairy Consultants don't simply hand off the many challenges that come up on a dairy operation; we get involved. At GPS Dairy Consulting we take ownership and responsibility to deliver results to ourselves, our peers and especially to our customers.




Success must be sustained and built upon. We will not be satisfied by delivering a single success. At GPS Dairy Consulting our consultants create value by delivering results. We capture the momentum of those results to create success and we build upon each individual success to create sustained success.
