Ross, a Western Iowa native, received his Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering degree at Iowa State University. He was raised on a swine and row crop production farm near Manning, Iowa, which motivated him to spend three years researching H2S in Swine production as well as other areas of agricultural waste management. Check out the Research page to see some of Ross’ past work. He also has four years of custom manure application experience, and is a 10 year member of the Iowa National Guard with three deployments under his belt. Ross developed the original wireless H2S monitor, as seen in “Manure Manager Magazine" and “Iowa Farmer Today” while doing research at Iowa State University. He has used his research background to develop the line of SwineSafe H2S Management tools. He continues to research manure solutions for all types of livestock facilities and would be happy to visit with you about your operation and needs.
