February 19, 2018-- On Saturday, February 17th about 20 of the MSU Block and Bridle Club members took at tour at Great Lakes Sire Service in Bronson, Michigan. Owners Earl and Melissa Souva opened their facilities up to the group and gave an in depth look at how the custom stud operates and how the business is an important part of the beef, deer, sheep, and goat industry. The group was exposed to how a bull is collected and what happens to the semen before it gets put into the tank, as well as the design of the facilities that are used to handle bulls. It was a great tour and we plan on touring there in the future!-- Brandon Goering, Marshall and Sparty Farm Fresh Tour Chairman.
