April Proofs Show Semex Works Everywhere!

With proving programs in four countries on three continents, Semex's lineup of veterans and newly proven sires offers dairymen a diversified lineup of profitable sires. "The April proofs show that Semex's sires work everywhere," says Pierre Laliberte, Semex Alliance Senior Vice-President, Global Genetic Programs/Operations. "Our success in Canada has never been greater, with 71 of the top 100 being Semex bulls. In the US we're seeing our Premier Program excel as our graduates continue to rank highly contributing to 13 of the Top 100 International Bulls carrying the 200 code. These bulls are successful worldwide, and average 1775 TPI. Impressive no matter where you are." Newly released Premier Graduate 0200HO05217 Vieuxsaule Malicieux (Income x R Marshall) is one example of Semex's success through the USA's Premier Program. Malicieux graduates with a 1794 TPI with an impressive NM$ of +417, driven by his low SCS at 2.99, positive Productive Life, 10 for Calving Ease and impressive +2.48 PTAT, +1.99 UDC and +1.70 FLC. 0200HO07317 Magor Bolivia Allen (Allen x Storm) and his full brother 0200HO07321 Magor Baroque Allen (Allen x Storm) are two newly proven Allen sons that are true global sensations, showing that Semex Works Everywhere! These brothers are both housed in Hungary, with Bolivia being dual sampled in the USA and Hungary, and Baroque being dual sampled in Canada and Hungary. 0200HO07317 Magor Bolivia Allen joins Malicieux as a recent graduate of the USA Premier Program, debuting in January with impressive type figures that did not waiver in April as he added dozens of daughters from Hungary, making him a true international phenomenon. Bolivia and Baroque are also brothers to the highly sought after 0200HO03205 Braedale Goldwyn. Goldwyn continued his climb up the TPI listing in April to the #3 position, and rose to the #2 LPI position and #1 Conformation sire in Canada. As field reports tell us that the Goldwyn daughters are the most impressive seen, his increasing PTAT of +3.91, +577 NM$, 71 Fat, increased PL and low Somatic Cell Scores haved further defined him as one of the most sought after sires in the world today. Bolivia gained daughters in his April proof, increasing his reliability without sacrificing his impressive figures of +3.49 PTAT, +2.08 UDC and +2.22 FLC with a low 2.85 SCS. Full brother, 0200HO07321 Magor Baroque Allen (Allen x Storm), debuted as #26 on the Canadian LPI listing. These well-balanced cows follow this family's strong conformation and workability traits, with lots of dairy strength, angularity and low Somatic Cell Score. Canadian proven 0200HO1885 Claynook Anthony (Stormatic x Rudolph) is just one of 12 Semex sires who score over 1700 TPI. These 12 sires have impressive averages of: 431 NM$; 2.86 SCS; 2.3 PL; +1513 PTAM; and impressive +2.40 PTAT, +1.68 UDC and +1.29 UDC.   Code TPI Name PTAM PTAF PTAP PTAT UDC FLC PL SCS NM$ 200HO03205 2035M BRAEDALE GOLDWYN 970 71 40 3.91 2.92 2.67 3.1 2.58 577 200HO04779 1838 R-E-W BUCKEYE-ET 1782 47 49 2.78 2.18 2.06 2.1 2.87 435 200HO05217 1794 VIEUXSAULE MALICIEUX 1690 37 56 2.48 1.99 1.70 2.1 2.99 417 200HO07128 1776M GORGONZOLA 2877 56 59 1.88 1.22 1.58 2.3 2.75 472 200HO01666 1761 DIAMOND-OAK APPOINT-ET 509 42 27 2.78 2.61 1.88 1.9 2.75 401 200HO04541 1754M REGANCREST-HHF LUCK-ET -555 54 1 1.63 2.03 0.34 6.2 2.76 520 200HO01796 1749M STANTONS SIDNEY 1501 53 61 2.19 1.40 0.73 1.3 3.03 384 200HO03315 1735M BRAEDALE PAGEWIRE 1430 48 52 2.66 1.64 0.67 2.2 3.09 363 200HO04624 1727M BRIGEEN GIVENCHY-ET 2014 64 43 2.60 1.02 0.89 1.7 2.76 413 200HO01584 1713 DIAMOND-OAK FROSTY-ET 1903 76 57 1.72 1.39 1.59 0.1 2.97 387 200HO01885 1712M CLAYNOOK ANTHONY 1853 52 51 1.97 1.16 0.34 2.1 2.87 411 200HO05156 1710M COMESTAR LITTORAL 2186 28 48 2.23 0.59 1.06 2.9 2.84 387 Average(s) 1775 1513 52 45 2.40 1.68 1.29 2.3 2.86 431 Type specialist 0200HO05191 Kerndtway Howie (Morty x BW Marshall) joined the Semex ranks, taking the #3 LPI position with an impressive +15 Conformation, +13 Mammary System, +11 F&L with a low 2.90 SCS and an overall LPI of 2324, pushed by his equally impressive +2355M +75F +67P.
