Meet Our Team
Joshua "Bo" Weisel
Joshua’s foremost talent is system implementation. As a member of the Chosen Acres team he goes into a milking parlor, assesses their current operating system, and turns it around in as little as 24 hours without slowing the dairy’s operation. Chosen Acres customizes the specifics of its operating system to each individual dairy based on a number of factors from geography to layout, so this analytical problem-solving ability is crucial to successfully implementing the whole system. Joshua builds strong relationships with dairies utilizing the Chosen Acres whole system, and these farmers use him as a trusted adviser and troubleshooter. Whether it’s a slight rise in somatic cell count or a major expansion of their operation, these dairymen rely on Joshua to provide insight on how to solve their problems. Joshua has put his experience and skill-set to work as a leader in fully integrating and expanding the Chosen Acres Whole System.
Jeremiah "Juice" Weisel
Jeremiah’s calling in life is the operation and management of dairy farms. Experience managing herds of 700 to 6,000 cows gives Jeremiah an intimate knowledge of the challenges and responsibilities facing other dairymen. This makes Jeremiah an integral link between the Chosen Acres Whole System and the network of dairies participating in our system.
Over the past fifteen years at Chosen Acres, Jeremiah has not only gained experience in the field implementing the system, but also provided all back office support for the operation. The reliability of customer service Jeremiah provides in getting necessary materials to dairies is a large part of the value dairy farmers see in working with Chosen Acres. Many dairy farmers currently in our network have remarked that they’ve never received such individualized, attentive customer service from any of their other suppliers.
