Semex Jerseys Lead Breed On Both Sides of Border

April 2010 Genetic Evaluations: Breed Leaders in Semex’s Jersey Lineup on Both Sides of the Border.

Semex sires continue to dominate the Lifetime Profit Index following the arrival of Canada’s first genetic evaluation run that included genomic data from the Jersey breed in early April.

Semex is home to the top three active AI sires standing in Canada for GLPI. They are 0200JE00314 Hollylane Lilibet’s Legacy, 0200JE00946 Sunset Canyon Dice-ET and 0200JE00430 Lencrest On Time-ET at +1746, +1542 and +1350 for GLPI, respectively. A further scan of this all-important list reveals that the 200JE code is home to 5 of the top 10 of the breed’s top bulls and 11 of the top 20 bulls for GLPI.

Exciting newcomer to the proven line-up is high fertility Repromax™ sire 0200JE00142 Lencrest Tyler-ET EX-91-CAN, a son of former Semex great Willoa Laser, debuting at +1108 for GLPI. This is high enough for 11th position in the breed and boasts a balanced breakdown across production, conformation and functional traits. All this makes Tyler very similar to his older maternal brothers in the Semex lineup, 0200JE00423 Lencrest Blackstone-ET and 0200JE00430 Lencrest On Time-ET who are both also Repromax™ sires.

Canada’s type leader since January 2010 and Semex Repromax™ sire, 0200JE00427 Select-Scott Minister-ET, added 18 additional daughters to bringing his total daughters classified to 82 daughters in 49 herds, maintaining his supremacy in the conformation department at +13, two points higher than his nearest rival.

In the US, veteran 0200JE00990 Sunset Canyon RP Militia-ET has added over 1300 daughters to his proof since August 2009, and has strengthened his numbers considerably. He is currently #5 for JPI on the active list at 160 and ranks #1 in the breed for NM$, CM$, PL and DPR, traits many commercial dairymen are focusing on today. His linear breakdown shows that he improves feet & legs and stature while not taking away from strength.

Extremely Balanced Mr Sam Son Joins Semex Line-Up

0200HO02106 Stantons Steady EX-90-CAN EXTRA is Semex's first Mr Sam son. Based on his debut proof Steady meets his name's expectations... balanced!
From the famous Saturday family, Steady's dam is a VG-85-2YR-CAN 15* Convincer from the VG-86-3YR-CAN 32* Rudolph Stress cow. Next dam is Sher-Est Thor Soup VG-88-3YR-USA GMD DOM 1* and then EX-90-5YR-USA GMD DOM Sher-Est S-Wind Saturday. This family is well-known for delivering profitable sires to the marketplace including seven other sires at Semex.
Steady arrives with an enviable proof from a unique pedigree, being a Mr Sam son from a Convincer dam. This cross truly worked, delivering balance and power throughout.
"These are big, black, powerful, angular cows," says Carl Saucier, CIAQ Progeny Analyst. "They have shallow udders with tremendous fore udders, are wide with hard tops, balance and style."
These field reports match his numbers at +14 Conf, +10 Mammary System, +11 Feet & Legs and +12 for Dairy Strength. USA figures of +2.23 PTAT match, and easily make him a Designer Series™ sire.
Steady offers even more for all dairymen looking to capitalize on profitability, being a Semex Health$mart sire with a +105 Herd Life, 2.99 Somatic Cell Score, +108 Milking Speed and +108 Daughter Calving Ability in Canada.
All this, and Steady is Semex's highest new release fat deviation sire at +0.52 in Canada and Semex's #2 sire in the USA lineup at +.22! Also, he's a high fertility Repromax™ sire making Steady a truly balanced sire that can be quickly added to breeding programs worldwide.

Profitable Laudan From Allen's Family Joins Semex Line-Up

0200HO00423 Canyon-Breeze Alaska is Semex's #1 LPI Release sire in April, ranking an impressive #12 LPI at +2039 GLPI.
Sired by Laudan and from the same family that gave us Semex great Canyon-Breeze Allen, Alaska debuts ready to work as a Health$mart sire and ranking high for both TPI and PL in the Semex lineup.
Alaska's dam is a VG-85-2YR-USA BW Marshall from a VG-88-6YR-USA Storm and then the EX-94-3E-USA DOM Emory sister to Allen himself. Their dam is an EX-93-5YR-USA GMD DOM x EX-91-2E-USA GMD DOM x VG-85-7YR-USA, all with high production lifetime records.
Health$mart sires are identified 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 including Daughter Fertility, Milking Speed, SCS, Herd Life and Daughter Calving Ease. Alaska easily fits this bill being +103 Daughter Fertility, +103 Milking Speed, low 2.78 SCS, +106 Herd Life and +105 Daughter Calving Ability in Canada. All this with a solid conformation, solid +1039 Milk and positive deviations of +0.12F and +0.13P.
In the USA, Alaska will create a great deal of interest, not only for his outcross pedigree but also for his solid type debut of +2.06 PTAT, +1.47UDC and +1.58 FLC. Additionally, his low 2.88 SCS, 8% Calving Ease +2.8 PL and positive deviations make him extremely profitable. Additionally, Alaska is Semex's #5 TPI sire and #4 PL sire.

Recently, Semex reached an agreement to market seven sons of the former #1 CTPI cow Wabash-Way Emilyann VG-88-2YR-USA for its Genomax™ program in cooperation with Taurus Service Inc. The first of these is 0200HO76579 Wabash-Way Evolve, Emilyann’s high-ranking Bolton son.

Semex Releases World's First Proven Goldwyn Son

In April 2010, the worldwide Goldwyn phenomenon continues with the release of Goldwyn’s first proven son, Designer Series™ sire 0200HO03491 Ladys-Manor Aurora.
Aurora arrives at a time when the demand for all things Goldwyn only equals his growing list of accomplishments! This includes recently being named the 2009 Worldwide Premier Sire by Holstein International, and dominating the 2009 All-American and All-Canadian contests. In the April 2010 genetic evaluation, Goldwyn still ranks near the top for TPI at #8 overall with a +2115 GTPI, and remains Canada’s #1 Second Crop Sire, ranking #4 overall at +2581 GLPI.
Aurora’s maternal line adds just as much interest, being extremely deep and powerful. His dam is a VG-85-2YR-USA Champion from a VG-89-3YR-USA GMD DOM 2* Aaron, then eight more generations of VG or EX dams, each with tremendous production records!
Eagerly anticipated by breeders worldwide, Aurora’s initial Canadian information does not disappoint. Like father, like son, Aurora excels for Herd Life, Conformation and Somatic Cell Scores. His solid conformation scores, +102 Herd Life and low 2.68 Somatic Cell Scores will make him instantly popular around the world.
“The Auroras are very refined, (like Goldwyns), with a feminine head, neck and legs,” says Carl Saucier, CIAQ Progeny Analyst. “They’ve got nice shallow udders are medium-sized and very refined with clean thighs and good udder texture.”
In the USA, where Goldwyn still dominates the top 10 High Ranking Sire Report at +3.33 PTAT, Aurora debuts with +2.47 PTAT, +1.60 UDC, +1.21 FLC and an overall +1672 GTPI. These type figures are supported by positive fat and protein deviations and low 2.73 SCS.
With big shoes to fill, Aurora steps into the worldwide spotlight backed by a great first proof. Additionally, breeders can capitalize on his high fertility Repromax™ status and his designation as a profitable Health$mart™ sire. Worldwide, the demand for this sire has been tremendous even ...
