Semex Alliance Announces New Distributor In Finland

The Semex Alliance, a leading global genetics company, is pleased to announce that Semex Finland is Semex’s distributor in Finland effective immediately.

Semex has enjoyed a successful relationship with dairymen in Finland through a distributorship provided by Semex Sweden. For over 10 years, Semex Sweden has cultivated relationships with the Finnish dairyman, building a new dairy culture in Finland.

“In 1998 I started using Semex sires on my own herd,” says Semex Finland General Manager, Sari Alhainen. “I have been so pleased with the results that I wanted to make Semex genetics more widely available to Finnish farmers. Working with Semex Sweden I began marketing Semex’s lineup and our Promate™ mating program. The results from Semex Sweden’s efforts are remarkable, and we are all very proud of this development.”

A family run business, Ms. Alhainen will run Semex Finland with her three sons.

“Sari is an extremely passionate ambassador for Semex,” says Brad Sayles, Semex Alliance Vice President, Global Marketing. “Finland has 300,000 dairy cows with Ayrshires being most prevalent. Semex’s balanced breeding philosophy is very appealing to these dairymen who demand cows that milk well, are long-lasting with healthy udders and have good feet & legs. We are thankful for Semex Sweden’s dedicated work and have no doubt Semex Finland will continue to grow our business.”
