Purebred Publishing is excited to announce a few new faces joining the team to better serve dairy breeders throughout the United States and Canada. These additions have been added as Purebred Publishing has realigned their strategy and business model to better meet the needs of the industry.
The sales team has expanded with the addition of Sales Executives Bethany Carpenter, Bailee Whitehead and Junia Isiminger as well as Junior Sales Executives Lauren Robison, Nathan Arthur and Korey Oechsle. Each bring new and unique talents to the team. They will be responsible for sales within their regions for the family of publications and online sites for Purebred Publishing.
Marjorie Rida, previous Sales Executive will be handling occasional contract projects for Purebred Publishing, such as the Guernsey Breeders' 2019 Calendar. She is stepping back from Purebred Publishing to pursue and even more active role with Ridale Genetics and her husband Ryan's business.
