DAVE BAIRD

VP / SALES & DESIGN

My name is Dave Baird. I have been with Roberts Irrigation since June of 1998, for 19 years I built and repaired center pivots along with drilling wells and installing pumps. Since 2017 I have had the opportunity to serve our customers from the office, whether from the daily operations of scheduling to solving issues as they arise and providing solutions to move water. Now I have the opportunity to help grow our company and continue providing solutions to our customers as the Vice President and also through Solutions and Design of water movement systems. Due to our location in the Central Sands area we also enjoy irrigation projects on our small hobby farm located in Bancroft Wi. My wife and I  have been married for 19 years and have two wonderful children and two grandchildren that we thoroughly enjoy. My goals at Robert's Irrigation are to provide quality solutions that fit our customer's needs while planning for our future together in a manner that will allow for all of us to succeed and grow together!
