Creston, IA – AMVC Management Services recently recognized employees who achieved career milestones. Among the recipients was Amanda Winslow, a local AMVC sow farm manager, who celebrated her tenth work anniversary with AMVC.
Winslow began her career with AMVC as a swine specialist at a sow farm in Harlan, Iowa. Over the years, she has taken on new roles and challenges. Today, she is the barn manager at Taurus Sow, a farm located outside of Creston, and Aries Sow in Mount Ayr. As a manager, she coaches 18 employees, oversees the daily tasks, and helps her team hit their production goals.
"The best part of my day is training and teaching my team members and watching them grow into excellent animal caretakers," said Winslow. "It's a great feeling to know you are part of helping provide a necessity in the world."
Her dedication to the pigs and people on the farms she manages has earned her recognition from AMVC and the Iowa Pork Producers Association. Winslow received the 2019 AMVC Sow Manager of the Year award and is currently participating in the Iowa Pork Leadership Academy, a program created to help develop leaders in the industry committed to building the long-term success of the Iowa pork industry and a better future Iowa communities.
Dan Weber, AMVC production manager, who works closely with Winslow, commented, "I have had the pleasure of working with Amanda for the past several years and have witnessed her work ethic and leadership. She is a great asset to the company, and we congratulate her on this accomplishment."
Winslow resides in Prescott, Iowa, with her husband, Josh, and their three daughters: Dakota, Cheyenne, and Avalee, and has two adult sons, Nick and Austin, of Kansas City.
AMVC is proud to employ talented and dedicated employees who are committed to the swine industry. AMVC, based out of Audubon, Iowa, manages 149,000 sows and is the ninth-largest pork producer in the United States.
