Select Sires commitment to success began 50 years ago when four cooperatives, owned and managed by dairy and beef producers, began working together to achieve more than any individual cooperative could accomplish.

Built of the shared belief that “Your Success in Our Passion”, Select Sires and its federation have delivered products and services that have helped dairy and beef producers reach their goals. This has led to the fact that today more dairy and beef producers “Select America’s Best” more often than any other provider.

To celebrate 50 years of Select Sires helping the cattle industry reach new heights, Select hosted a celebration attended by past and present employees, media, and industry leaders to celebrate their anniversary. David Thorbahn CEO of Select Sires acted as the master of ceremonies introducing visitors from Japan, World Wide Sires, LT Governor of OH, and past general manager Richard Chichester. Memories from employees, board members from the past 50 years put Select’s passion and commitment on display for all those in attendance. The attendees were treated to a unique video presentation showing the history of the organization.
