URUS is extremely proud and honored that, based on his instrumental contributions to the dairy industry and his community, peers nominated and selected Wijnand Pon as a 2020 World Dairy Expo Recognition Award winner.
Wijnand Pon is a man who never stops chasing his dreams. With his positive energy, passion for the dairy industry, and drive to ensure a sustainable environment for the future, he has been an example to both farmers and agriculture industry professionals around the world.
Under Wijnand’s leadership, Koepon Holding became a leader in the dairy industry. In 2018, his high ambitions and entrepreneurship led to a unique business combination between Koepon Holding and Cooperative Resources International. The result was the formation of URUS Group LP; a unique organization with both cooperative and private ownership. URUS and its companies – AgSource, VAS, Alta Genetics, GENEX, Jetstream Genetics, PEAK and SCCL – are all centered around the cow and empowering producers for the future.
Wijnand will be formally recognized during World Dairy Expo at WDE’s Dinner with the Stars, September 30, 2020 in Madison, Wisconsin.
