Ben Jensen

I grew up on a small beef operation in western Montana. I earned a BS in Animal Science from Montana State University and worked in the seedstock beef cattle business.  My wife and I had twin girls 5 years ago and moved to her home state of Massachusetts to be closer to more jobs and better hospitals and services.  My wife got a job working for WEX in South Portland, and I was extremely fortunate to land a job at Wolfe’s Neck.  I was involved in the transition to organic dairy and have seen a lot of great progress and changes here.

At Wolfe’s Neck, I manage the dairy cattle and other livestock, implement and oversee the grazing plans, and also work with Matt haying and cropping.  A very big part of my job is teaching the apprentices about grazing, animal health, feeding and nutrition, and best management practices on an organic dairy.

I love spending time with my family, reading, watching football, and playing and writing music.
