Editor's note: This Practice Builder involves Tim and Andy Riordan, dairy nutritionists from Clovis, Calif.

One of the best things that Tim Riordan has done is bring his son, Andy, on board as partner in his nutrition consulting business.

Tim Riordan says it’s helped bridge the gap with younger producers and their children to have his son working with him.

Andy graduated about three years ago from Fresno State University with a master’s degree in nutrition.

One of his special areas of interest is heifer management.

Andy says he and his father get along “surprisingly well,” considering they have different personalities.
He says he is more aggressive, while his dad is calmer. But it turns out that those personality traits complement each other on various occasions.
