How did you get involved in the AI industry?

Describe a typical day in your life on the job.
“A typical day in my job includes receiving tanks from Select Sires Inc. where our bulls are housed, unpacking the semen in to our tanks in California, filling orders for customers as they come in, helping them gather supplies, filling nitrogen tanks, helping team members hook up nitrogen trailers, maintaining inventory, and more. There are lots of oddball tasks that we get done here besides just unpacking and packing semen orders.”

If it was your choice, what unique name would you give our next best-selling bull?
“DOUBLE PLAY, with hopes that he would be a breed leader in two traits!”
What is your favorite part of your job?
“My favorite part of my job is when somebody asks me if we have a bull and we have it and I can fulfill their wishes. I love seeing the people smile. That’s a great feeling for me!”
