History of Schleining Genetics
Dallas Schleining grew up on a small farming and cattle operation in southeastern Colorado. His family has been involved in production agriculture for many generations. Dallas and his parents farmed many acres of irrigated cropland as well as operated a commercial cow-calf and back-grounding operation. Dallas developed a great fondness for the cattle operation at an early age. While at Colorado State University he enrolled in a cattle artificial insemination course. Following his instruction he began to AI cattle for a few producers in Colorado and Nebraska where he further honed his skills. Due to the demand for his expertise and services, Dallas started Schleining Genetics.
Schleining Genetics is a company that was founded by Dallas Schleining in the spring of 2004. The business was established with a goal of utilizing reproductive technologies to improve the cattle industry.
