Co-op Membership is Simple and Rewarding

Dairy and beef producers within the contiguous U.S. have the opportunity to become Genex members, delegates and directors. Becoming a member is simple and rewarding. It allows you to have grassroots input in the governance of your cooperative!

What are the benefits of becoming a Genex member? As a Genex member, you...
Have voting privileges allowing you to have a voice in the governance of the cooperative.
 • Have the opportunity to participate in district and member appreciation meetings.
 • Earn equity in the cooperative.
 • Can become a Genex delegate or director.

How do I become a member? To become a member, simply:
 • Purchase $500 of semen, products and/or services in a 12-month period, complete a membership form and have your social security number or tax identification number on file at Genex.
 • Or, sign up for one-year membership status by purchasing at least $200 in eligible products and services from Genex, completing 
a membership agreement  and requesting membership via this membership exception form.

Do I have to attend regular meetings?
Members are invited to one meeting each year. This meeting is the cooperative's chance to thank members for their involvement.

What does it cost to become member?
No fee is required to become a Genex member. Simply meet the above requirements of purchasing $500 worth of products, semen and/or services in a 12-month period, completing a membership form and having your social security number or tax identification number on file at Genex to become a member.

As a member, how is my opinion heard by the cooperative?
 • As a producer member you will have the chance to elect a delegate for your district. Each delegate represents approximately 100 members.
 • Each delegate represents his or her district at a fall input meeting and at the annual meetings each January.
 • Delegates gather as a region to elect their board member. Board members from 13 regions comprise the Genex Board of Directors.
 • Thus, as a producer member your opinions are brought to the attention of the governing board by the elected delegate for your district.

Genex is top-of-the-line, progressive and keeps up with the times. Part of that progressiveness comes from the fact Genex listens to us - to members - and asks us questions. Genex is focused on progressing for our benefit, because it's the members they are working for.
