Semex's 0200HO07030 Ladino Park Talent-IMP *RC EX-90-AUS ST recently reached another impressive milestone in his life, surpassing the one million-dose mark and joining the elite ranks of Millionaire Sire Status at the Semex Alliance. Talent is Semex's tenth sire to produce over one million doses and joins an impressive fraternity of industry icons including: Hanoverhill Inspiration; Madawaska Aerostar; Startmore Rudolph; Comestar Lee, Leader, Outside and Lheros; Stouder Morty; and Oliveholme Aeroline.
Exported as an embryo to Australia from Canada, Talent's first proof was in February 2003 when he arrived as a rump and udder specialist with the special Red Carrier status. One of many Maughlin Storm sons proven at Semex, Talent's high-profile pedigree set him apart from others, with his dam being an EX-91-2E-USA daughter of the famous Stookey Elm Park Blackrose EX-96-3E-USA GMD DOM 7*.
Selling every dose he's produced, Talent's popularity knows no boundaries with semen exported to over 30 countries, netting over 50,000 daughters in production worldwide to date. Dairymen around the world have commented that Talent's been the biggest udder and rump improver they have ever used, making him popular with both commercial dairymen and elite type breeders.
"Talent epitomizes breeder satisfaction worldwide," says Brad Sayles, Semex Alliance Vice President, Global Marketing. "He has excelled in herds that milk 50 cows and herds that milk 5,000 cows, demonstrating that Semex and its sires really do work everywhere."
Talent's attributes are numerous and his growing resume includes scores of show winning daughters and countless sale toppers. With tens of thousands of daughters classified worldwide, he's seen as an ambassador of tremendous balance, near perfect udders and ideal rump structures giving him the coveted dual status of being both a Semex Master Series™ and Semex Designer Series™ sire.
All this, combined with his extremely high fertility Repromax™ status, high herd life figures and his bonus Red Carrier status will continue to define Talent as one of the Holstein breed's elite sires.
