Dr. Trey Kellner

Dr. Trey Kellner received his M.S. and Ph.D. from Iowa State University in 2017, following his B.S. at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln. He joined AMVC Nutritional Services as their first Swine Nutritionist. Trey oversees the feeding program for over 150,000 sows and 1.2 million market pigs per year in 9 states across 26 feed mills. Trey sets cost of production, space utilization, and market weight strategies for AMVC and AMVC managed clients, a setting in which dietary energy strategy via fat inclusion level is the most important variable. His recognized research on dietary fat digestion, utilization and deposition combined with his experience in modeling, formulating, and verifying the impact dietary energy via fat inclusion has on the bottom line for pork producers make him an ideal speaker on the subject matter of dietary fat. Trey was named a Young Scholar by the MW section of ASAS in 2017 and was presented with the Stahly/Peo Outstanding Swine Nutrition Graduate Student Award that same year. Trey currently resides in Audubon, Iowa with his wife Heather and one-year old son Theo.
