At the 2014 Select Sires Reproductive Solutions Conference held during June in St. Louis, Mo., Phil Dieter of Middleton was named the Activity System Specialist of the Year for his outstanding work in the reproductive field.
Dieter was raised on a dairy and beef farm in southwest Wisconsin and always had a passion for showing cattle. He started with Select Sires as a technician in 2001 and landed his current role as a SRS specialist seven years later. Dieter oversees many programs at East Central/Select Sires including reproductive services, beef programs, program for fertility advancement and activity systems. Dieter is incredibly knowledgeable about activity systems and the reproductive and health improvements they can make in a customer-owner's herd. He customizes reports and individualizes support to fit the needs of each herd.
"His combination of reproductive, technological and customer service skills make Phil a very valuable part of our organization," says Al Deming, general manager of East Central/Select Sires. "Phil has been the individual who has driven the sales and, most importantly, the service and maintenance of the over 90 systems in our area. We are all very proud of Phil's accomplishments with activity systems and the reproductive improvements they have made in our customer-owner's herds. He is a key contributor to the success of our organization and a mentor to several other SRS specialists in the Select Sires federation."Source: Select Sires
