Our New Formula Made Many Breeders Happy

CIAQ, a proud partner in the International Dairy Showcase (IDS) and in the Holstein Québec Spring Show introduced a newly-created CIAQ Zone at the shows this year.

The CIAQ Zone proved to be a dynamic meeting area where breeders viewed pictures of many of our sires' daughters, which were shown on a giant screen, while chatting with CIAQ personnel and viewing the judgings live. A luncheon was served to the exhibitors.  Also, several breeders participated in our promotion  "On a Roll with CIAQ" and won reductions of up to 50% on the purchase price of semen.
