Evolving Into Tomorrow Together: Semex's Jersey Program

What we hear, see and learn from you drives us. It’s about you, and together, the Semex Jersey program is evolving into tomorrow. Recently, Semex made some revolutionary changes in its Jersey sire selection criteria as opportunities to work with more Jersey clients and growing national Jersey populations expanded. In 2012, these changes led to increased sales activity that outstripped industry averages. Now with the expansion of Sexxed™ semen offering, the identification of more Immunity+™ sires and our sire lineup’s growth, Semex’s Jersey future looks even brighter! Our selection criteria focuses heavily on customer value and profit-making traits such as Cheese Merit $, the Jersey Udder Index (JUI) and the important fitness traits, while constantly hunting for genetic diversity. The results are a stable of sires that certainly typify Genetics for Life. Semex Jersey sires are fertile bulls with healthy daughters that know how to work. These daughters are built to last and ask very little of those caring for them, making them the most profitable cows on dairies. The April 2013 release of the year’s first official genetic evaluation took our already buoyant energy and Jersey passion to a whole new level! And, no place is this passion more evident than in our breed-leading Genomax™ program. Semex’s Genomax sires are the result of the industry’s most rigorous selection process. This has helped identify some of the most in-demand progeny proven bulls in the world. And, they are proof positive that Genomax bulls should be used confidently to maximize genetic gain. Genomax™ Lineup: We have identified and released Genomax™ sire 0200JE00511 Vermalar Bruce (Branson x Iatola), bringing a unique pedigree, exceptional overall ... Read More...
