COVID-19 Update: Premier Select Sires

TUNKHANNOCK, Pa.—Despite the uncertainty Americans face due to COVID-19, Premier Select Sires will continue serving as a trusted partner and advisor to the beef and dairy producers in our 23-state territory. Premier leadership continues to monitor the situation and is prepared to take necessary actions to ensure that essential services remain operable. We will use every effort to deliver uninterrupted essential services without jeopardizing the health and welfare of our member-customers, employees, and distributors.

To do our part in preventing the spread of the virus, we have postponed large employee meetings until further notice. Non-essential business travel is being limited, and many staff members have been asked to work from home when possible. If employees become ill, they have been asked to stay home and consult a physician. For those employees who are unable to work, relief workers will be assigned as we aim to present as little disruption to customers as possible.

Artificial insemination training course instructors are evaluating individual courses and canceling as necessary. In those cases, registered course students will be contacted and refunded.

Premier Select Sires commends our member-customers and other agriculturists, who continue to work hard in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. Thank you for continuing to ensure that our families, friends, and communities have high-quality, nutritious milk and beef during these trying times.
