Having bulls to suit every dairy breeder in the UK whatever their management system or breeding objective: that's the Semex Works Everywhere philosophy, and bearing that out is the recent proof run and latest new entrants to the Semex product line-up.
Sons of Semex legend Talent have proofed-up strongly with two excellent Talents introduced this proof round.
But bringing a new dimension to Semex's portfolio is 'the commercial dairyman's dream' - CROCKETT-ACRES EIGHT. This O Man, out of Crockett-Acres Mtoto Elly, is currently ranked No.3 for PLI in the UK with a score of Ł226, with +547kg milk, high fat and protein %. Moreover he has a staggering -26 somatic cell count.
Plus for type, mammary, and legs and feet his daughters are medium in stature. Daughters milk out easily and his high Lifespan score shows they have the ability to last for many lactations.
Semex continues to build on the Talent bedrock by introducing two of his sons -MORSAN FRONTRUNNER RC and WEST PORT BOOKMAN RED.
FRONTRUNNER is from the Raven family via Rudolph and out of the superb Markwell James Fiona VG-89. Proven in the US as well as Canada he has a very balanced, all-round type, scoring +2.62 Type Merit, +2.22 for mammary and +2.16 legs and feet with a PLI of Ł120.

Also proven in the USA and Canada, Bookman shows many of the same characteristics of Talent. He scores +3.10 for UK Type, +3.13 for mammary and 1.52 for feet and legs, with +221kg for milk at positive fat and ... Read More...
