in 1986

Pine Creek® Nutrition Service, Inc. (PCNS) was founded in April 1986 by Dr. Dennis Daugherty. Dennis’ goal was to establish a progressive, independent, and serviceoriented consulting firm and provide ever-expanding services beyond simply formulating rations. Dennis also recognized an opportunity to flex the combined power of a large and prominent dairy clientele. This flexibility would further enhance the ability of PCNS to provide unparalleled service and technical support. 

PCNS grew rapidly because of Dennis’ vast knowledge and sterling reputation in the industry, and the need for additional consulting and support staff was soon realized. Expansion would bring additional expertise, a team perspective to problem solving, and service continuity. 

Today, PCNS employs 11 nutrition consultants. Although the home office is based in Turlock, CA, PCNS has a satellite site in Selma, CA with staff located from Visalia, CA to Escalon, CA. The team currently provides nutrition and management consulting services in California, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Minnesota, Michigan, and throughout the Midwest. Our consulting team possesses extensive experience with both Holstein and Jersey herds. We are fortunate to have staff experienced in the calf industry as well. There isn’t much our staff hasn’t seen, dealt with, managed, or consulted about. 

PCNS achieves results through teamwork while providing clients a personal nutritionist for each of their facilities. Our reputation in the industry was and continues to be very important. PCNS employs only the highest caliber consultants, associates, and support staff. Our mission is to provide service to our clients promptly, and with honesty and integrity.
