SEMEX HEALTHSMART LINEUP INCLUDES FEED EFFICIENCY

In August 2009, the HealthSmart™ lineup was launched as a means for Semex clients to quickly identify bulls that would sire the most valuable and profitable cows on the dairy. Five years later, the HealthSmart brand still represents sires that provide fertile and healthy daughters, but also more feed efficient cows.

“By including Feed Efficiency in HealthSmart, we’re further emphasizing moderate-sized cattle, healthy cattle, efficient cattle and all around good commercial cows,” says Jay Shannon, Semex Global Dairy Solutions Manager. “These cows are the profitable kind. They have more efficient production, lower maintenance costs, lower health costs, better fertility and lead longer, more productive lives. They’re exactly what dairymen are looking for and what we’re talking about when we talk about Genetics for Life.”
