Owner & Founder
Seth Christensen was eleven years old when he purchased his first two Holstein bull calves from a neighbor's dairy. After receiving identical feed and care, when it came time to sell them, there was a large difference in weight between the two calves. When he asked the neighbor what the difference was, the neighbor told him, "Genetics." Thus, a lifelong interest in genetics was born. By age 15, Seth was a certified AI technician. He owned a small herd of registered Angus cows by the time he was 17 years old. At age 18, Seth began using embryo transfer, and for the last six years has used both embryo transfer and artificial insemination to improve the quality of both his herd and the herds of his clients. Graduating in 2016 with a degree in Economics from Utah State University, Seth understands the impact of quality genetics on the bottom line of a business and strives to tailor fit genetics into each individual cowherd that will best fit their business model and production goals.
Hailey graduated from Utah State University in the spring of 2019 with a degree in Family Life Studies and a minor in Marketing. Since being married to Seth, she has enjoyed meeting and working with ranchers throughout the United States as she travels with her husband. Hailey looks forward to visits from clients at their ranch in Weston, ID as Christensen Genetics continues to expand.
