To our All West/Select Sires cooperative members,
We thank you for your commitment to your cooperative. We value the trust you have placed in working with us and want to update you on the measures we are taking to ensure the continuity of our service to you. We have also communicated to our valued employees with similar messaging.
Maintaining a Safe & Healthy Work Environment
The health and safety of our employees and customers is our highest priority and we are doing our part to help contain the spread of the virus. We will continue to seek guidance from both the California Department of Health and the Washington Department of Health during this time.
A.I. Service Technicians, Account Managers and Support Teams are continuing to conduct farm visits to deliver semen and products, breed cows, and provide you our value-added services. Our office also remains open at this time. We must take precautions to keep employees, and customer’s families and farm teams, safe.
Actions we will adhere to include:
- If sick, stay home and follow self-isolation protocols until fully recovered.
- Do not linger in common areas on farms
- If farm visits are not needed, use phones and email as a preference to conduct business.
- Practice good hygiene with regular hand washing and covering your mouth/nose if you cough/sneeze.
- Avoid high-touch interactions like handshakes and maintain safe distances during conversation (6 feet)
To further prevent disease transmission,
any upcoming group meetings will be canceled or postponed.
To help prevent disease transmission, feel free to communicate with your representative regarding semen and product needs prior to their visit and let them know what your preferred approach is for delivery. Our team will be seeking guidance from you if anything is to be adjusted.
Thank you for being loyal members. Managing this situation will be made easier by working together to keep each other safe. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me. We will continue to monitor this situation carefully and adjust as directed.
Jim Wells, CEO All West/Select Sires
