Seth ConwaySeth Conway, Precision Product Manager | 716-560-0124

Seth started his career working on various farms through high school and college. He spent 15 years working for a custom harvesting company where he continued to glean as much information on how things worked. In 2007, Seth came on board starting as a Product Support Rep and with his ability and passion for Precision Farming Equipment, it was apparent that Monroe Tractor needed to utilize that expertise and created the Precision Dept. with him at the helm. Since, he has been an integral part of streamlining the use of cell modems in the cabs of equipment for RTK/VRS accuracy within NYS without having to invest in a large infrastructure to do so. He has since grown the department and continues to push the envelope to develop new, less expensive opportunities in the ever-changing agriculture technology market.
