About Us - Select Sires Member Cooperative

Over 75 years of genetic progress.

With over 75 years of experience COBA/Select Sires has become the professionals’ choice for superior artificial insemination techniques and stellar reproductive solutions. COBA is proud to serve member-owner-customers each day. Our program not only serves your genetic and reproductive needs but we also have nitrogen, nitrogen units and A.I. supplies available to you on a regular basis and delivered directly to your door.

Also available to assist you in sire selection is our Select Mating Service and our Select Reproductive Solutions team members that will aid in troubleshooting reproductive needs. Our staff of well-trained and experienced professionals, top quality products, and superior semen allows us to stand behind every cow we breed.

Let us be part of your breeding program or let us train you to ‘do-it-yourself.” COBA offers programs geared to increasing bull output (through PGA) and identifies new challenges daily through various programs such as Select Mating Service (SMS), Program for Fertility Advancement (PFA) and genderSELECTed™ Semen.

We are continually seeking highly qualified professionals to join our team. If you are interested in an exciting career with COBA/Select Sires Inc., please check out our careers page for more information!
