All-West Select Sires is pleased to announce the addition of Austin Day to the team as a Reproductive Sales Technician. Day, a native of Denair, CA, is a recent graduate of CalPoly with a B.S. degree in dairy science and a minor in ag business. He joins the northern California sales team providing assistance with breeding, heat detection and Select Reproductive Solutions (SRS) work.
Austin grew up showing beef from the time he was 13 years old. Good friend and breeder of several Select Sires beef bulls, Todd Fair, got Austin very involved in production agriculture. “Todd helped me pick out project steers each year and really taught me the ropes. He also let me ride along on his sales route for Associated Feeds. It really inspired me to pursue a degree in dairy science after spending time on so many dairies.”
In school, Austin was involved with the CalPoly dairy club, Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity and the Livestock Show Management team. He also helped with the Society for Handicapped Children & Adults, where he volunteered in the adaptive snow ski and water ski programs.
“I’m really looking forward to starting my job with Select Sires. Having worked for other A.I. companies in the past, I enjoy working with producers to advance genetics and help with bull selection. This is one job where you can see the actual results of your decisions when calves hit the ground,” said Austin.
Day started working with the All-West team in June
