Wayne Glaeser officially joins the All West Family on April 1, 2022 as the All West/Select Sires Beef x Dairy Marketing Coordinator. In this new role, Wayne will help us to develop supply chains for beef cattle produced from dairy operations and provide more options for our growing beef on dairy business.
All West/Select Sires General Manager/CEO Rory White is excited to welcome Wayne. He commented, “Although many may recognize Wayne for the impact he has had on the dairy sire lineup, including legendary bulls 7HO10506 ATWOOD, 7HO10920 GOLD CHIP, and 7HO7872 ADVENT-RED, he is also a lifetime member of the Angus Association. Wayne will be working with our sales staff, Select Sires Inc., and our customers in the beef on dairy area of business.”
Born and raised in Manitowoc, Wisconsin with a herd of Registered Holsteins and Registered Angus cattle, as well as Registered Duroc and cross bred hogs, a passion for all things agriculture was instilled in Wayne at a young age. After graduating from the University of Wisconsin, Madison with degrees in both Dairy Science and Meat Animal Science, Wayne joined the ABS Global team as District Sales Manager on the East Coast. He was then promoted to Regional Sire Analyst covering the western United States. Wayne went on to work for Semex Alliance where he designed their U.S. Young Sire Sampling Program branded Semex Premier.
Next, Wayne and his wife, Beth, began Glaz-Way Enterprises, LLC in 2000. Glaz-Way developed many young sires and by partnering with Select Sires, they brought 7HO10506 ATWOOD, 7HO10920 GOLD CHIP, and 7HO7872 ADVENT-RED to the marketplace. For the last three years, Glaz-Way has been actively meeting with dairy producers, calf ranchers, and large, commercial feedlot owners to develop a traceable, sustainable, feed efficient beef on dairy product. They have found that Select Sires Inc. and All West/Select Sires has the missing piece.
“I’m proud, honored, and humbled to be joining the All West/Select Sires Family as your Beef on Dairy Marketing Coordinator,” said Wayne. “I’m looking forward to creating a unique, profitable plan for each of All West/Select Sires’ beef x dairy producers and building a strong relationship with calf ranches and feedlots.”
Wayne and Beth reside in Escalon, CA and will be celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary on April 5, 2022. They have two adult sons: Ryan and wife Jennifer, who have a 5-month-old son named Ezekiel, and Michael and his wife Karli, who have three children, Madison (9), Kendall (4), and Matthew (2). Wayne enjoys attending his grandchildren’s sporting events, traveling with his wife, and tending to their small beef herd.
Wayne’s friendly personality, can-do attitude, and extensive experience in both the dairy and beef industries has allowed him to naturally immerse himself in the culture of All West. He has already been on the road meeting with All West team members and customers alike, and looks forward to working with many more in the near future.
We are thankful to have Wayne on our team and look forward to providing additional opportunities and services to our member-owners with his assistance. Welcome to the All West Family, Wayne!
