Feb. 4, 2015, Waupun, Wis. – Brad Fossum, Lodi, Wis., celebrated on Jan. 28, 2015, with family, friends, and co-workers the sale of his 500,000th semen unit in late December. Baerwolf Dairy and Sassy Cow Creamery outside of Columbus hosted the event.
Fossum has been working for East Central/Select Sires for more than 20 years. He started out as an A.I. technician and worked his way to area sales manager (ASM). As an ASM, Fossum is an educated vendor for his customers, selling Select Sires semen and genetics, cow-monitoring systems, and herd-management products.
“Brad is truly a top performer for our organization and the members he serves; he is one of the best for cattle knowledge and customer service,” commented Al Deming, East Central/Select Sires general manager. “Robert Baerwolf of Baerwolf Dairy and Sassy Cow Creamery told me at Brad’s celebration, ‘Brad is much more than a semen salesman; he has helped us in many ways on our farm and promoting our products.’ Brad is a true professional in everything he does.”
Baerwolf Dairy is a 3-generation farm near Columbus. There are two farms, one conventional and one organic; both are owned and operated by brothers, James and Robert Baerwolf, along with their families. Milk from their cows is sold as milk, cheese, and ice cream at their own Sassy Cow Creamery, just down the road from both farms.
