Burlington, WA-All West/Select Sires is pleased to announce the addition of Brad Barham to the team as a Sales Support Manager, based out of the Turlock, CA, office. Beginning in January of 2017, Brad will be working in the field with All West sales and service personnel to help promote the competitive advantages that the Select Sires lineup provides. In addition, Brad will spearhead the All West Jersey marketing program from Washington to southern California. The
growth of “the little brown cow” has become a strong change in the western dairy landscape, and that, along with the Select Sires’ partnership with Jerseyland Sires, puts All West in a fabulous position to become the leading source of Jersey genetics and Jersey expertise for western producers.
Brad grew up with Registered Jerseys on a farm in east Tennessee and received a Bachelor’s degree in business administration from Tennessee Wesleyan College in 2010. Brad has worked as the genetic & reproduction manager at Barham Jersey Farm where he negotiated more than 30 contracts with eight different A.I. organizations. He’s a graduate of the inaugural Jersey Youth Academy, and was a Business Development Specialist with the American Jersey Cattle Association. Most recently, Brad was the Genomic Programs Manager for River Valley Farms.
Brad is married to Iris Peeler Barham, who graduated from Virginia Tech with a BS in Dairy Science and an MS in Reproductive Physiology. After working as a Large Animal Sales Representative for Fort Dodge, Iris became the Dairy Supervisor at Berry College in Rome, GA, where she oversees 45 student employees. Brad and Iris will be relocating to California with their daughter, Addie.
“We’re excited to have Brad join the All West family,” states Jim Well, CEO of All West/Select Sires. “Brad got to know a lot of our team through his involvement with River Valley. His knowledge and passion for the dairy industry is unparalleled! We are looking forward to having him involved with customers across the entire All West region.”
