Brian Carscadden is our official and I think it would be a great opportunity for members to take in this clinic. Brian was born and raised on a registered Holstein farm in eastern Ontario and still resides in Guelph, Ontario, Canada with his wife Linda and 3 children; Craig, Lauren and Colin.He graduated from the University of Guelph with a bachelor of science in agriculture degree in May of 1994. Upon graduation of University Brian was hired as a sire analyst for United Breeders of Guelph, Ontario. Then in 1998 the Semex Alliance was formed and Brian was hired on to the Semex Alliance Sire Analyst Team where he continues today purchasing bulls across Ontario, Ohio, Kentucky, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Indiana as well as in the UK and Ireland.  Before his A.I. career Brian was very successful as a professional dairy cattle fitter, preparing cattle for top Holstein, Ayrshire and Jersey breeders around the world. Brian remains active with various youth programs and is a big promoter of youth in agriculture.  He speaks at many youth events and promotes youth involvement in the annual Semex Alliance Walk of Fame at the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair and World Dairy Expo, which he heads up each year.

We hope to see many 4-H members in the ring to judge animals.
