Afimilk recently expanded their US team with the addition of Andrew Plumski, Application Support Specialist, and Michael Vieira, Territory Sales Manager, South.

Plumski is no stranger to the dairy farm. He previously managed an 800-cow dairy in Minnesota where he was responsible for herd health and employee oversight. He also served as assistant herd manager for a 3,500-cow jersey dairy in California. Plumski holds a degree in Dairy Science from the University of Minnesota.

“I joined Afimilk’s application support team so I could ensure quality after the dairyman’s investment in technology. I want to make sure dairymen and managers are getting the support they need to fully experience the benefits of Afimilk.”

Michael Vieira joined Afimilk as Territory Sales Manager, South. Vieira owned a dairy farm for a decade prior to establishing a cattle genetics company, which specialized in heat resistant semen for dairy and beef cattle. He also operated a family dairy supply company. Vieira transitioned to the poultry industry, working as a producer for a large US-based integrator in Oklahoma, before returning to dairy.

“My passion is the dairy industry,” said Vieira. “I love to develop relationships with my customers and bring them the products that can truly make a difference in their daily operations.”

When Vieira discovered the opportunity with Afimilk it “seemed like a perfect fit because of the company’s progressive approach to technology. I was excited about the opportunity to be part of a leading team and get back on the dairy farms I love.”
