Ep 02: Galen Fink of Fink Beef Genetics
In this episode of the Calf Tour Podcast, we welcome Galen Fink of Fink Beef Genetics, breeders of Angus and Charolais cattle. From Fink Beef Genetic's website: "One cow, $4,000, no owned land, and two jobs was the start of Fink Beef Genetics in 1977. Innovation, nontraditional, unique, and outside-the-box thinking has forged us on for 35 years. Now in 2016, we will market approximately 700 bulls. A 99.9% artificially inseminated herd for 35 years, one of the largest embryo transplant programs in the United States, and a networking of all segments of the cattle industry, plus old-fashioned cow sense has driven this family-owned operation since 1977. We have never waited for things to happen. If we see a need, we do it only if we feel it is in the best interest of our customers. Fads are not part of our program… long-term results are. When you call Fink Beef Genetics, you will talk to one of us." Galen and Lori are genuine, self-made people that have been very strategic in building their business. Throughout the show, Galen talks about customer experience and the importance of not trying to reinvent the wheel, but always using proven genetics. Join me for a enlightening and honest conversation about the challenges of the beef industry, genetics that work and how anyone can still make it in the beef industry.
