R A Wilson Cheese consulting (DCI recommended cheese consultant)

I graduated from South Dakota State way back in 1970. Worked for the Cass Clay cheddar cheese factory in Aberdeen,SD for many years in all areas of barrel cheddar cheesemaking.

I went to work for Nordica International culture company as a technical service representative located in SW Wisconsin overing most of the US and some of Canada. Nordica became known as Marschall Products, then Rhone Poulenc, then Rhodia, and when sold to Danisco I was terminated after 15 years.

After a brief stint managing an Amish blue cheese plant where we produced a second place cheese in the World Cheese Contest, I have been working with smaller dairy producers which I find is very enjoyable. Most recently I was at Dr P.A. Bowen farmstead in MD where I have assisted in developing blue, cheddar, and jack cheese production.
