Congratulations to Stuart Rasmussen, Rushville, Neb., Doug Harris, Orange, Va., and Shane Talkington, Belfield, N.D., for being named 2013 Beef Boosters of the Year by Select Sires Inc. for their outstanding work in the beef cattle industry.
Stuart Rasmussen, sales representative for Select Sires MidAmerica, Inc., has been one of the pioneers in offering full-service breeding programs to his customers dating back to the mid 1980s. Stuart is respected by his co-workers and has been the “go-to” person to answer questions about bulls and synchronization protocols. His customers have always gone to him for advice and direction in their breeding programs. He focuses on developing sound, long-lasting cows for his customers.
As a 14-year veteran of Minnesota/Select Sires Co-Op Inc., Shane Talkington’s contributions to Select Sires’ business development are clear. His humble attitude and servant leadership style have made a tremendous difference for Select Sires as well as the North Dakota Angus Association where he is now a member of their board of directors.
Select Sire Power Inc., area sales manager, Doug Harris, embraced the concept of turn-key breeding projects and providing highly skilled professional technicians early in his career. He is a promoter of value-added genetics and has worked closely with his clients to provide opportunities for them to realize the value of superior A.I. genetics.
