CAMP HILL – Wayne Brubaker of the Pennsylvania Farm Bureau’s MSC Business Services was recognized with the Dairy Service Award by the Pennsylvania Dairy Industry for his dedication to helping dairy farmers grow their businesses and improve their profitability.
Brubaker, who has served for 13 years as a consultant has helped lead the way by providing expertise in feasibility and profitability studies, as well as business and estate planning. Brubaker has had a long career in helping Pennsylvania dairy producers manage their farms and has been involved with more than 500 dairy farms in the 43 years that he has worked in the industry.
He began his career as an account supervisor before advancing to a senior account supervisor and consulting supervisor. Brubaker is also an enrolled agent and can represent clients before the Internal Revenue Service. As a consultant, Brubaker strives to build caring and trustworthy relationships with his dairy clients to provide sound, unprejudiced advice.
In addition to the services he provides, Brubaker also trains his staff on how to provide services to their dairy clients as well. He is a member of the Dairy Benchmark program sponsored by Farm Credit East and helps organize their annual meeting to discuss the reports he prepares for dairy farms.
Brubaker supervises the publication of the MSC Business Services’ Dairy Profitability Comparison, which is a two-page summary of data for dairy farms across the state. The report compares each farm to the Top 10 percent of dairy farms as well as the averages for their size farm. Wayne has also received the Master Award twice, which is the highest award given annually to staff members of MSC Business Services.
Brubaker is married to Karyn and enjoys spending time with his family. In his free time, he is a volunteer in his church and is a volunteer coach for youth sports.
For Wayne, helping others grow their dairy operations is one of his greatest accomplishments.
“For many dairy farmers, the success of their business ensures financial security for their children and grandchildren,” Brubaker said. “To see an entrepreneur build a home, business and legacy for future generations is my greatest joy.”
The Pennsylvania Dairy Industry Awards program was established to recognize leadership, stewardship, and excellence in the state’s dairy industry through awards presented annually at the Pennsylvania Dairy Summit. Nominations are collected in the fall and are reviewed by a committee from the board of directors of the sponsoring organizations, which include The Professional Dairy Managers of Pennsylvania (PDMP), the PA Dairymen’s Association and the Center for Dairy Excellence.
