ReproScan is excited to welcome Derek Hermes to our sales team as a US Sales Representative. Derek started in December of 2016. He will be based in Texas and will travel throughout the United States. Derek will head up on-farm demonstrations for both beef and dairy operations.
Derek brings a well-tailored set of experiences with him to ReproScan. Derek grew up in Elbert, Colorado as one of ten kids in the family. From a young age he was involved with cattle both on his family’s cow-calf operation and through 4-H. Following high school, he pursued his interest in cattle and went to work for a large purebred Limousin cattle ranch in Colorado. After obtaining a degree in Ag Business, he went to work for ABS in Portales, New Mexico. Derek was a breeder for ABS in Idaho, New Mexico and Texas.
After deciding that the frigid temperatures of Idaho were not for him, Derek took a job for Champion Genetics in East Texas managing their AI facility. It was during his time in Texas that he became proficient in ultrasound technique and procedures such as fetal aging and ovarian exams. While at Champion Genetics, Derek was involved in many aspects of the business including donor management, deer collection, and herd protocol design.
Derek is excited to be part of the ReproScan team, “I look forward to working with the staff of ReproScan as well as the current and future ReproScan clients.” If you are interested in getting in touch with Derek to discuss ultrasound options for your business, he can be reached on his cell at 903-571-2030 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
