CIAQ Celebrates 65 Years

Semex congratulates its owner Centre d’insémination artificielle du Québec (CIAQ) as they celebrate their 65th anniversary of service to dairy and beef producers.  After a modest start in 1948, CIAQ pursued its own path over the years to become the largest enterprise of its kind in Canada with 300 employees and approximately 700 sires. In 1998, CIAQ became the property of three Quebec producer groups: the Fédération des producteurs de lait du Quebec (FPLQ), the Conseil québécois des races laitières inc. (CQRL) and the Conseil provincial des cercles d'amélioration du bétail inc. (CP CAB).  It is therefore appropriate to celebrate this anniversary by highlighting the cattle breeders of Quebec who have supported the enterprise in its growth, in the improvement of its products and in the innovative of its services to be able to continually go farther in the genetic development of cattle herds and ensuring the profitability and sustainability for all dairy and beef producers in Quebec. Promotions and prizes for cattle breeders and young farmers will take place throughout the year as a great way to underline the event. CIAQ publications will provide all the details in order that everybody can participate.  Our know how, the commitment of our employees and the loyalty of our clients represent just one of the pillars of CIAQ’s success, a rendez-vous with success that has been 65 years in the making.  The 2013 year promises to be an excellent one for CIAQ and its clients. Since our first day 65 years ago, we have been motivated by the passion to serve our clients and to play a leading role in all projects which we have taken on. This is the reason why we will celebrate this anniversary year with the theme “As Passionate As Ever!”, a fitting slogan to inspire us to continue to pursue benefits for our producer clientele in the same fashion as in the past.
