Management Team

Three key managers oversee the sales, production and distribution activities of Birchwood Genetics. With a composite tenure of 48 years working with the company, strong, long-term relationships with customers, allied partners and employees have been developed by these individuals, helping to create the growth that the company has seen over the years.


Philip Dorn – General Manager

As a knowledgeable and competent leader in the pork industry, Phil oversees all of Birchwood's operations.  He works with the management team and all employees to ensure that the goals and objectives of the company are fulfilled. He also fosters business relationships with PIC North America, supply vendors, researchers and allied industry representatives, for the mutual benefit of Birchwood and its customers.


Jamie Hundley – Director of Production Operations

Jamie oversees the daily production and distribution of semen and supplies from all three Birchwood sites. He works closely with the Lab Managers, Sire Technician Managers and the Direct Delivery team to optimize labor efficiency, application of technologies, distribution logistics, genetic upgrades, and herd biosecurity, all in an effort to provide customers with the strongest-performing products available, delivered in a timely fashion.


Jason Slaton – Technical Service & Sales Manager

Jason is very active in direct communications with customers, prospects and allied industry friends, along with coordinating sales efforts and technical services by other members of the Birchwood sales team and PIC representatives. These communications focus on the needs of swine producers, ranging from genetic programs to applied reproductive science, and matching the right solutions to meet those needs.
