Germantown, Wis. [November 1, 2017] – As Calf-Tel continues to expand throughout North America and globally to meet demand, so has the need for additional sales personnel to meet customer expectations. Xavier Avila joins Calf-Tel from the dairy mecca region of California. Residing in Tulare, California, Xavier is a lifelong dairyman, most recently a Territory Manager at Parnell Veterinary Pharmaceuticals.

A staple in the California dairy community, Xavier has owned his own dairy operation since 1992. In addition to his background in operations and genetics, he is also a corporate board member of Land O’Lakes and has served as Chairman of the California Dairy Campaign among other accomplishments.

“We’re delighted to have Xavier join our team,” says Brandon Sowder, Calf-Tel Director of Sales. “Not only is he extremely knowledgeable in all things dairy, he’s also an advocate for the producer and the calf. We look forward to him helping our customers grow their herds.”

“Calf-Tel represents an enormous opportunity for overall calf-health in the Western region and with that comes a more productive herd. Calf-Tel is at the forefront of innovation in calf housing and I couldn’t be more excited to join the team during these exciting times,” says Avila.

When he’s not working, Xavier doesn’t have time for anything but family. He and his wife have seven kids!
