Emmetsburg, IA – Ag Property Solutions, LLC (APS), an industry leader in providing customers with innovative and customized solutions related to the planning, design, construction and outfitting of livestock production facilities, announced today it has invested in a majority interest of Evans, Colorado-based Dairy Specialists, LLC (www.dairyspecialists.com). Details regarding the purchase price were not disclosed.

Dairy Specialists will continue to operate and service customers under the same name and Randy Sorensen, the founder and current owner of Dairy Specialists, will remain with the company as Chairman while also remaining a partner in the business along with several other key personnel. Brian Stork, Chief Operating Officer for APS, will assume the same role for Dairy Specialists and be responsible for managing the day-to-day operations for both companies.

“APS offers a full, turnkey option for livestock producers of all sizes looking for construction and maintenance expertise. This exciting new partnership will open the door for us to become more involved in the dairy industry and allow us to broaden our animal housing knowledge and services to other species,” commented Stork.

Dairy Specialists is one of the largest and most innovative commercial dairy service and equipment dealerships in the country. The company supplies commercial dairy farms with innovative parlor designs, new construction, remodels, robotic milkers, dairy waste management and 24/7 tech services. Additionally, the company offers state-of-the-art dairy equipment, parts and supplies thanks to strategic partnerships with a myriad of the world’s best manufacturers and suppliers.

“While you can count on seeing the same faces and the same levels of quality equipment and service you have become accustomed to with Dairy Specialists, we know this partnership will enhance our ability to expand our offerings and improve our service to a whole new level,” said Sorensen, who plans to continue working closely with customers in-the-field.

This new partnership between APS and Dairy Specialists will highlight and combine the strengths of both companies under the umbrella of Standard Nutrition Company (SNC), which is the owner of APS and various other ag-related entities in the livestock feed and nutrition industry.

“I look forward to seeing the different ways in which APS will be able to collaborate with our new partners at Dairy Specialists,” said Bill Dyer, President of SNC. “This new partnership positions both companies for growth and will provide opportunities for all of our businesses to learn and grow.”
