Jordan came to the Swine Vet Center (SVC) in 2017 with experience at one of the largest swine companies in the US — The Maschhoffs. He worked as a herd veterinarian in western Iowa and, prior to joining SVC, served in a dual role of Director of Health and Production for western Iowa finishing as well as overseeing health programs for 53,000 sows in Nebraska and Missouri.
Jordan is originally from a diversified farm with crops, cattle and hogs outside of Cherokee, Iowa. He graduated from high school in Brandon, South Dakota, where he gained experience working on a family-owned dairy farm, showing dairy cows in 4-H and judging dairy cattle in FFA.
In college, Jordan made the switch to swine. He received his BS in animal science from South Dakota State University in 2010 and entered Iowa State University’s veterinary school. He earned both his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine and MS in veterinary preventive medicine in 2014.
Working today in the swine-dense area of northwest Iowa and southeast South Dakota, Jordan sees plenty of opportunities to help independent producers solve complex disease issues and continue the success of their systems.
Jordan and his wife Sasha have two daughters, Myla (age 4) and Adalyn (1½). They live in Milford, Iowa, and enjoy spending time with family and at the lake. Jordan also enjoys helping out on the family farm.
