PLAIN CITY, Ohio, August 9, 2010 - At Select Sires, employees take pride in and are committed to helping each dairy producer succeed and improve the profitability and productivity of their herd through Select Reproductive Solutions™ (SRS™). That's why dairy producers trust Select Sires' highly trained SRS specialists to help design a customized reproductive program that fits their needs. The most important component of SRS is the unmatched level of service that is provided by Select's knowledgeable reproductive specialists. In order to continually elevate the reproductive expertise of every person on the Select Sires service team, Select Sires provides a number of training sessions each year.

"Reproductive expertise has always been a significant element of Select Sires," stated Dr. Ray Nebel, vice president of technical service programs. "The training that occurred during the two SRS workshops will further enable Select Sires' SRS specialists to better serve dairy producers throughout the country by improving reproduction within their herds."

Nearly 45 primary reproductive specialists from across the country - representing all of the Select Sires member cooperatives and Select Sires Canada - attended one of the two-day conferences held in July. The agenda focused on introducing the attendees to Select Detect™, Select Sires' heat detection system that will be released this fall. Current and future Program for Fertility Advancement™ (PFA™) trials, trend analysis using Select RePRO Analysis™ software and herd management software were also reviewed. In addition, both of the workshops included farm tours in the respective region.
