Bernie G Bakker

President/Founder

Rob Kamp

Sales Representative

     My childhood began growing up on a hog and crop farm near Sioux Center, Ia.  I am a true farm girl at heart.  Along with helping on the farm, I have enjoyed babysitting, working in food service industries, and working in bookkeeping at American State Bank.  My college education was completed with a degree in Early Childhood Development.  Bernie and I have been blessed with three children.  I enjoyed being a homemaker while the children were little.  As our children began preschool, I did substitute preschool teaching.  I enjoyed this stage of life!  
     In 2003, Bernie and I launched Bakker Consulting (BCI)  I was ready for a new challenge!  We both knew starting a business would be a large challenge.  As we grew, we hired additional sales representatives and office staff to help with our ever growing workload.  My current responsibility is not only being Vice President but also Business Manager at BCI.  I have come to really enjoy management and the people side of the business.  It seems I wear several "hats" each day, but it is the diversity that makes each day interesting and a challenge.  The Ag industry certainly offers many challenges, but that is what makes doing business in the agricultural industry exciting and fulfilling.  We enjoy being your partner in the ever changing and exciting agriculture world.

     I grew up on an acreage with a farrowing operation.  Along with helping my father with the hog operation, I would ride with him selling Ralco feed whenever possible.  During my high school and college years, I worked at a neighboring, large commercial feedlot. These early experience gave me a foundation of knowledge in the livestock industry.  After a course in a Ag/Business program, I went to work with a dairy consulting company as a independent sales agent.  I traveled to many dairy productions areas in the U.S. and gained valuable experiences in the dairy business.
     In 2003, my wife Rachel and I decided to venture into our own business and Bakker Consulting was established.  BCI began as a dairy and feedlot nutrition consulting company. As we have grown and expanded, BCI has also become a distributor of Ralco Products and technologies.
     BCI strives to bring cutting edge nutrition and products to agricultural producers in a form the producer can understand.  BCI also strives to bring resources and expertise that fit commercial agricultral production.  BCI partners with the customer to ensure success.  My passion for the agricultural industry is very strongly rooted and is clearly evident in the foundation of BCI.  My goal for BCI is to be a strong leader in this fulfilling industry.  Best wishes to all agriculture producers!
