With the April 2010 genetic release, Semex is pleased to introduce 17 new sires to its Health$mart lineup.
Semex identified Health$mart sires as those that sire the most valuable and profitable cows on the dairy. These sires excel for qualities that dairies can easily quantify in their ledgers. Dairymen can trust that a Semex Health$mart sire will have a positive financial impact, saving on vet bills, medications and staff time, as well as lost breedings and lost production.
Since its release in August 2009, the Health$mart lineup has been under tremendous demand, as dairymen around the world are looking to reduce expenditures and increase their profitability.
The selection criteria for a Semex Health$mart sire is based on:
Health Traits: Herd Life, Somatic Cell Score, Daughter Calving Ability, Milking Speed, Daughter Fertility
Production: Milk, Fat and Protein
Durability Traits: Final Conformation, Mammary System and Feet & Legs
