Mark Carpenter, CEO

Thank you for visiting the Premier Select Sires website. Whether you are a member, a customer, a vendor or just looking for additional information, I invite you to have a look around.

Premier is the result of merging two AI cooperatives, each with a long-standing reputation for serving beef and dairy producers. This merger begins a new chapter, adding to our long lineage of serving member-customers that dates back to 1938. Our successful history has provided a foundation to allow our branches to grow so we can bring you new ideas, products, and services to meet the progressive and rapidly changing needs of producers both today and tomorrow.

The year 2018 will be remembered as a very challenging year for dairy and beef producers across the country. It will also be viewed as one that resulted in more changes for the AI industry than any other single year. It’s never been more important to have a reliable, experienced partner that you can count on when you need them. When you choose Premier, you are choosing a partner that will be there for you every step of the way. You are choosing specialists who not only possess expertise and experience, but also personal passion for the industry and for your individual success. Building your herd for tomorrow starts today, and it needs to be viewed as a generational journeynot a destination. Please consider us your premier partner in reaching your goals and talk to one of our representatives to learn about the full portfolio of resources we can provide to support you and your operation.

With an active board of directors comprised entirely of beef and dairy producers, we remain focused on administering the products and services our customers want and need to achieve success. On behalf of our board and employees, I thank you for visiting and wish you great success in 2019 and beyond. We look forward to serving your needs.
