Career Opportunities: Sales & Sales Support Roles
Recently some members of the Progressive Genetics Salesteam (as well as Munster AI Salespeople & NCBC Salespeople) got to a presentation from Stephen Connolly and visted ABP Food Group’s R&D farm in Clonegal, Co. Carlow which is home to a herd of mainly Angus and Hereford steers and heifers. Established in 2015, the farm is the base for the company’s research on dairy-beef systems. This work is carried out in conjunction with the ICBF (Irish Cattle Breeding Federation) and Teagasc. It’s also ABP’s largest Blade Farming operation in Ireland.
Our new Elite Type Sires Catalogue (based on September 2017 Proofs) is available online now (hard copies will be available in a week or so). There is a huge selection of bulls (with 36 bulls featuring) from across the world, from NCBC, Semex, ABS & CRV. We have EBIs & Country of Origin proofs for most bulls, plus lots of progeny & family pictures.
Due to the arrival of storm Ophelia today we will be operating a reduced service.
Our Enfield and Dublin offices will close at 12 noon, we will endeavour to have phone line forwarded in cases of emergency.
Our delivery service will not be operating today which may cause delays in semen delivery or milk recording reports.
Our field staff (including AI technicians) have been instructed to avoid travel for the duration of the storm.
We hope no inconvenience is caused by the storm and urge all our staff and customers to take the utmost care and wish everyone the best of luck.
Please be safe!
