Manager, Swine Nutrition and Technical Services

Ernie received his bachelor's degree in animal science and his MS in monogastric nutrition from South Dakota State University.  Ernie has extensive experience in the swine industry, both through his work as a nutritionist for a large swine farm in Minnesota and with Hubbard Feeds.  Today, as the manager of swine nutrition and technical services, Ernie oversees all aspects of Hubbard swine products, technical services and research.

Ernie’s first-hand swine production experience gives him a valuable, unique perspective as he works with the rest of the swine technical team to develop products and programs that help our customers improve their profitability, reduce risk and make their lives easier. Ernie believes in the value of the research and is known for saying “the pigs will tell us the answer.”

Outside of work, Ernie’s interests include hunting, fishing, and helping his children with their 4-H livestock projects.  Fun fact: Ernie's wife Sharlie Hansen also works for Hubbard, as a research data specialist.  Ernie is passionate about raising his four children “with a farming, 4-H and FFA background as they are our future leaders.”
