Select Sires is pleased to announce the hiring of Brandon Thesing as regional account manager. Thesing will be responsible for delivering strong genetic sales support to key clients in the I-29 region (Neb./S.D./Iowa/Minn.).
Backed by six years with Minnesota Select Sires Co-op, Inc., Thesing's career has allowed him to sharpen his skills in sales, leadership and account management, while excelling in understanding the application of elite genetics, monitoring systems and outsourced reproductive services for large commercial dairies.
Chris Sigurdson, general manager, Minnesota Select Sires points out, “Thesing has been integral to establishing a thriving business in southern Minnesota with impressive growth results. He has helped to build a dynamic team of sales and service personnel across that region. Extending his abilities to assist key clients across the region is perfectly suited for his skill set.”
This newly appointed position is designed to leverage the collective knowledge of Select Sires and Thesing to help key clients be profitable in their dairy businesses by utilizing the people, products and services Select Sires offers.
Devin Albrecht, general manager of Prairie State/Select Sires noted, "We are excited to have Brandon join our team and help our cooperative, along with Minnesota Select Sires Co-op, Inc., and Select Sires MidAmerica teams. Brandon is passionate, dedicated and knowledgeable and will help Select Sires meet customer needs."
Thesing will continue to be employed by Minnesota Select Sires Co-op, Inc., but will help all three cooperatives in northwest Iowa, southern Minnesota and eastern South Dakota.
Based in Plain City, Ohio, Select Sires Inc., is North America’s largest A.I. organization and is comprised of nine farmer-owned and -controlled cooperatives. As the industry leader, it provides highly fertile semen as well as excellence in service and programs to achieve its basic objective of supplying dairy and beef producers with North America’s best genetics at a reasonable price.
