A Message from the Premier Board of Directors:
UNIFICATION UPDATE (7.28.21)—As detailed in a message released by the Premier board of directors on 6.1.21, The Premier board unanimously rejected a proposal for the six member cooperatives that own Select Sires Inc. to consolidate into one entity by a process called Unification. If all five remaining cooperatives voted in favor of Unification, those five organizations would unify without Premier’s participation, and Premier would become a “cooperative member” of the unified organization.
Another large owner of Select Sires joined Premier in voting against the Unification plan. Based on the predetermined conditions of the vote that all five of the remaining entities must approve, Unification no longer has enough support to continue.
As they have from the introduction of the unification concept, the Premier board remains committed to staying true to our cooperative values while seeking viable opportunities for growth and development. Thank you for your patronage as we look towards the future together.

“Top line bulls of all breeds.”
“Great techs. Certificates transferred quickly. All those that represent Select Sires that we have come in contact with are courteous and knowledgeable. They treat us like everyone else even though we are a small breeder.”
“Had great success with Select and have seen improvement in our herd! Will continue to use Select!”
