Steve Pavelski
Software Training and Field Support Manager
SCR Dairy
Greenfield Township, Pennsylvania



What education are you bringing with you to this position?
I earned a Bachelor of Science in dairy and animal science from Penn State University.

Please describe your agricultural background.
I grew up on a small family dairy that is still in business today. After graduation from college, I began my career with ABS Global in California, working with dairies on the young sire program. I then became a herdsman for a large dairy in California before joining Morrisville State College in New York as its herdsman. Ten years ago, I returned to ABS Global; my territory was northern and central Pennsylvania.

What territory will you cover?
My territory includes the U.S.

What are your new responsibilities?
I will provide training and technical support for our sales team, and on-farm, advanced training for customers and their team. I will work with our distributor representatives and the team at SCR to ensure that everyone on the dairy and outside consultants – including nutritionists and veterinarians – can maximize the benefits and unique management information provided by the technology.

What previous positions have you held?


  • Area sales manager – ABS Global
  • Dairy herd manager – Morrisville State College
  • Herd manager – Bayou Vista Dairy
  • Progeny promotions specialist, West Coast – ABS Global

How will you be of most help to producers in your region or area of expertise?
With the company’s advancing technology, dairy producers of every size will be able to take advantage of continued innovation. My job will be to support producers in their utilization of the SCR Heatime system.

Why did you choose this company?
When preparing for the future of their dairy business, many farms are going to be looking to automation to stay competitive. SCR Dairy is the leader in animal monitoring and will be a major contributor to that success.

What goals would you like to accomplish while in this position?
My biggest goal is to be a key part of a dairy’s successful business.  PD
