WHO WE ARE

Supporting Farmers as They Make Data-Driven Decisions

Founded as a nutrition consulting company in 1993, Supervisor Systems was created out of the need for dairy farmers to have systems to monitor and manage the critical data on their farm. What started as Feed Supervisor in 1996 has expanded as we identify tracking and reporting opportunities and build the tools farmers truly need. Now, we proudly offer a collection of software and equipment to serve your feed program, inventory, and hoof health needs. 

 

Using Supervisor Systems products, dairy farmers are able to track and examine the metrics that truly matter on their farms, empowering data-driven decision making that supports efficiency, herd health, and milk production. Together, our solutions encourage efficiency on the farm and help farmers identify challenges that keep them from meeting their profit potential.

OUR MISSION

At Supervisor Systems, our mission is to build innovative technology that supports dairy farmers and farms. Through our software and consulting offerings, we support efficiency, saving farmers money so they can build more profitable farms while stressing less about critical day-to-day tasks. We pride ourselves on operating with integrity, doing right by our customers because we truly care about their farms. For us, business is personal, because we know the farmers we work with, and we care about their results.

OUR VALUES

Our values guide our work throughout the company, driving innovation and keeping us connected to the people we work with and the results we deliver. Our software is pioneering—the first of its kind—and we continue to value forward-thinking across the company, anticipating customers' needs and delivering solutions to solve their problems. Our products and consulting services are also purposeful, without frivolous add-ons or unnecessary features. They are easy to use, and our entire organization operates with purpose. In both our products and the experience of working with our company, we value reliability. Our software is relied on every day by real farmers, and customers know that they are taken care of and can count on us. Finally, we value relationships, connecting with our customers to truly understand their needs, fulfill our promises, and provide ongoing support.

OUR STORY

Supervisor Systems began as KS Dairy Consulting, a nutrition consulting business that serves dairy producers in Wisconsin and Minnesota, in 1993. Understanding that feed is critical to profitability and production, we quickly saw a need to help our clients see the bigger picture. Our feed management system, Feed Supervisor, was created to track and report feed costs as well as savings opportunities through measuring shrink, clean-up, and operator error.

 

From there, our commitment to our clients inspired our Truck Supervisor system, created in 2009 to track and control ration costs and inventory. This innovative system was designed with simplicity in mind, eliminating opportunities for user error that create inaccurate data. 

 

Through our ongoing consulting work with dairy producers, we also created our Hoof Supervisor chute-side recording system that helps identify causes of lameness so they can be eliminated, further supporting milk production and profitability. 

 

Through every new development, we always remain focused on our customers. We pride ourselves on creating solutions that fit seamlessly into the regular routine of a dairy farm. We create straightforward programs that produce practical reports and help you care for your cows—it’s that simple.
