A dozen do's and a few don'ts.
It doesn't matter where in the world you farm. If dairy producers select genetics based on capacity of an animal's immune system, they'll have healthier, more productive herds.
More dairy producers are now using embryos to accelerate herd genetics and boost their bottom line.
Semex's mating program delivers a strong user experience and leverages the herd's genomic information.
Semex's partnership with University of Guelph plays a key role in identifying dairy cattle genetics that can produce naturally healthier animals.
Commitment to animal care, biosecurity, disease testing and traceability helps Semex raise the bar on animal health.
High immune response genomics has proven to identify dairy cattle with better natural immunity to diseases. Building on this success, Semex and partners are now working to bring this technology to the beef industry to tackle Bovine Respiratory Disease (BRD).
Have you ever done a genetic audit? That's one of the first questions producers need to ask themselves when they're building their own strategic plan.
Semex's Fertility First program has helped increase conception rates by 5.2%.
Reduce disease impact, save money and decrease antibiotic use on your farm. It sounds like a lot for a producer to ask for, but it's becoming a reality on a growing number of farms.
What started as a research project more than 20 years ago, before Semex was established, has indeed changed the game.
At Semex we're working hard to build a sustainable future for our clients and our business.
Sexed semen usage on dairies everywhere has grown exponentially in recent years, as producers look to optimize genetic progress by ensuring that their best cows produce heifer calves.
In this interview, we ask Paul Trapp, one of our Product Acquisition Specialists, to share his insights on Semex's top sires, sire selection, the impact of genomics on product development and the importance of success in the show ring.
Dairy producers continue to adopt beef-on-dairy programs to maximize revenue from calves on their farms.
For the past decade, genomics has dominated dairy herd improvement discussions.
In the genomics era, the success of AI companies is highly dependent on their ability to develop their own young sires.
Disruptive technology continues to reshape the genetics industry.
