Wout and I want to give everybody that we came in contact last week at the World Dairy Expo a big Thank You for coming by our booth and what a great week it was! We met more people than we even expected! Everything seemed to go perfect from the mid 70 degree weather to our booth being busy to having our first board meeting! 😉 We already know we will not miss next year – booth and all!
We got most of our to-do list done. Having a booth got us lots of leads on both future customers and bull prospects. We appreciate all the people who came to the expo looking for us. They came prepared with pedigrees in hand and all! We also want to give a big thank you to our representatives and a few customers who helped us work our booth including our Sersia France relationship with having a dedicated representative helping us out a lot – it is very much appreciated!
Wout and I just got done talking and we definitely felt much more noticed by the other A.I. studs this year than last year! Many more dirty looks than ever before – not all though, Genex and CRV both were very nice to us giving them both credit for the mutual respect. I think more people know who we are now because of a combination of Social Media outlets and also the awesome job Progressive Dairyman does in their advertising reach in letting people know we are around and mean business! 🙂
One of our biggest highlights of the week was sealing a deal with Mitch Breunig of Mystic Valley Dairy with the purchase of a Goldwyn half brother to Toystory and another great bull we won’t mention quite yet! We are hoping to have semen available by early February just in time for the World Ag Expo in Tulare!
