Introducing Stephanie Aves

Nedap Livestock Management, a global leader in dairy management systems, recently hired Stephanie Aves to join its North American dairy support team. Aves joins the team as a business development manager.

Nedap offers dependable, smart dairy farm equipment for efficient and effective herd management, including technology for feeding, milking, sorting/routing, heat detection, cow locating, and production and health monitoring.

In Aves’ role, she’ll work side-by-side with Nedap’s existing dairy business partners (leading A.I. and milking equipment companies) servicing dairy farmers across North America. Her primary focus will be supporting sales representatives who are working with dairy farmers using or looking to install herd management and individual cow monitoring systems with Nedap technology.

“Stephanie’s knowledge of dairy farming and experience in agriculture education will help us provide our business partners with the tools that will help dairies succeed,” says Bertino Verstege, managing director, Nedap Livestock Management. “Our goal is to enhance productivity on farms across North America and Stephanie will help us do just that.”

Aves brings with her an extensive background in agriculture education. She taught at Cassville school district in Wisconsin, and Warren Community and Dakota Community school districts in Illinois. She also has global advertising and sales experience with Cowsmopolitan magazine. Aves has a strong focus on genetic improvement and works directly with farmers to help promote their genetics. Aves grew up dairy farming on her family’s operation, ST-YLE Holsteins and raises dairy cattle today in Wisconsin.

“Nedap values the time they spend with their business partners and farmers, and I’m thrilled to be a part of a team who wants to give farmers reliable, top-of-the-line technology,” says Aves. “As a member of the Nedap team, I can share my passion for the dairy industry while helping farmers be as profitable as possible.”
