Meet our general manager

Dairy Specialists has been the leader in Colorado for 30 years serving the dairy industry with equipment, parts and service. Becoming a Lely Center in this great dairy state was ideal given that the core values of Dairy Specialists and Lely are very similar, to provide a good product and take care of your customers. Twenty years ago, when I first got involved with robotic milking, I came to understand that providing your customer with the best technical support possible is crucial to successful robotic milking. We are continuing that tradition here at Dairy Specialists by creating a solid team of service & support professionals focused exclusively on Lely products, problem solving, and 24/7/365 service.

January 3, 2021

To all the wonderful customers we have had the privilege of working with and the many friendships created over the years, we are retiring. After 43 years full time and 51 years working in the business along with Michelle’s 18 years we are retiring and going into a new chapter of life.

With our deepest appreciation we want to thank you for all the continued support and loyalty we have shared both in Sorensen Dairy Equipment (1970-1991) and Dairy Specialists (1991-present).

We are confident with the new ownership (Bill Dyer) and the new management that has been in place for the past year that Dairy Specialists will continue to grow and get better, while maintaining its highly regarded reputation in the dairy industry.
It is highly unlikely we will get bored with parents, kids, grandkids, traveling, our motorhome, motorcycles and mountain property.

With sincerest appreciation, thank you for so many great years!

Kind Regards,
Randy & Michelle Sorensen



Dairy Specialists LLC (Dairy Specialists) of Evans, Colorado, is pleased to announce it has finalized an agreement to acquire the assets of Priority Robotics of Tillamook Inc. (Priority Robotics), effective July 1, 2021. Priority Robotics, which was founded in 2015, specializes in the distribution, installation and service of robotic dairy milking equipment and holds an exclusive territory dealership for Oregon and Washington with Lely North America, the worldwide leader in dairy robotics. 

The acquisition of Priority Robotics, located in Tillamook, Oregon, increases the market share of Dairy Specialists in robotics and broadens the company’s geographical reach to better serve the increasingly technological dairy industry. Priority Robotics currently employs six individuals in the Tillamook region, all of whom will remain on staff and continue serving customers under the Priority Robotics of Tillamook Inc. name.    

“It is an exciting time in the industry, and the acquisition of Priority Robotics fits perfectly into our strategic business model. We are cutting edge when it comes to technology, so adding the talent and resources of Priority Robotics allows us to gain more leverage in the industry,” says Brian Stork, chief operations officer at Dairy Specialists.  

Kurt Mizee, the founder and owner of Priority Robotics, will serve as an independent consultant to Dairy Specialists. He will assist with integrating the two companies and help transition customers and staff onto the Dairy Specialists platform. He will also continue to own and serve as vice president of Tilla-Bay Farms, Inc., which was the first dairy in the Western United States to install a robotic dairy milking system in 2011. 

“I feel strongly that Dairy Specialists’ values and leadership align with the vision and mission of Priority Robotics,” said Mizee. “This sale provides a greater array of resources to better position the business into the future.”
