About Professional Dairy Systems & Athman Dairy, Inc.

Our History

Athman Dairy, Inc. was started in 1995 in Pierz, Minnesota by Dave and Loren Athman. Dave and Loren have a long history and an even longer family history in the dairy industry – dating back to 1968 when Loren’s father Cel and brother Virgil (owners of Pierz Iron Works) became a certified DeLaval Dealer. Shortly thereafter their brother Ed joined the sales and installation team and in 1975 Dave joined the team and in 1980 Loren became part of the Athman Dairy team.

In 1995 Dave and Loren bought the DeLaval Dealership and Ed (Dave’s father) stayed on for the venture and filled the position of parts manager and “trouble shooter” with his irreplaceable wealth of dairy industry knowledge and experience. At the age of 90 years old, Ed is still with us behind the counter providing invaluable insight and experience to the business and crew.

In 2005 we acquired a second location and dealership in Wadena, Minnesota, Professional Dairy Systems. The team there has grown to 9 employees and we continue to expand our capabilities and services as the dairy industry and our customers dictate.

At Professional Dairy Systems and Athman Dairy, Inc. we are dedicated to serving the dairy industry and keeping pace with the ever-changing technology of the times. Our experienced staff and service technicians are trained on the latest industry technologies and service offerings and we maintain a strong, knowledgeable work force to provide the highest level of service that you and your dairy operation demands.
