Eric D. Spell
Director of Business Development
Eric D. Spell grew up on a family farm in eastern North Carolina. Surrounded by agriculture, Eric always knew he wanted to be involved in the industry and went on to major in Business & Agribusiness Management at NC State University. He began his agriculture career by working with the largest swine integrator in the world, Murphy Brown, as a Corporate Recruiter and Trainer and eventually as live operations manager. After years of invaluable corporate experience, Eric decided to pursue his entrepreneurial calling in the form of AgCareers.com. Eric served as the Co-Founder and CEO for 20 years where he led the company to be the leading online job board for agriculture. Eric then stepped into the role of Director of Business Development for FarmLab Innovations. In this role, Eric has led the movement to revolutionize the animal health industry in meeting the needs of farmers by “bringing the lab to their farms.”
In his free time, Eric enjoys playing golf, spending time with his family attending NC State athletic events, and sitting by the lake at their house with his wife, their three children and their four-legged friend, Russell.

Over the last year, our team had countless discussions with poultry growers in order to find out more about their process. We learned about the daily headaches that made their efforts more complicated and aimed to offer practical solutions to these problems. Several growers revealed to us that cleaning the fans between flocks was one of the most time-consuming and frustrating parts of their job. We quickly recognized that this was also an issue shared by those focused on raising healthy pigs. SWASH™ was developed after combining this information with the depth of surfactant chemist knowledge that existed within our team. It’s why we like to say, “FarmLab Innovations – bringing our lab to your farm for solutions to new and old issues!”
