Highest Available Oak Son Joins Genomax

Genomic testing over 6000 young sires worldwide nets impressive results for Semex's industry-leading Genomax™ lineup. Six years after the Genomax program launched, Semex is proud of the results it nets, with modern success stories including two current top 10 TPI sires, 0200HO03753 Marbri Facebook (#4 TPI sire) and 0200HO07450 Amighetti Numero Uno (#6 TPI sire). And, rising super stars including the international sensation 0200HO06480 Val-Bisson Doorman

Joining this elite group is Semex's first and the highest ranking Oak son available in the world, 0200HO06676 Ladys-Manor Octoberfest. 

A HealthSmart™ and Robot Ready™ sire, Octoberfest has breed-leading figures of +2576 GTPI, +1960 PTAM, +751 NM$, over +130 combined Fat and Protein, low 2.69 SCS with solid type. These figures make him one of Semex's highest GTPI sires.

Octoberfest's dam is the former #1 GTPI cow, Ladys-Manor Dorcy Oda VG-88. Oda is also the dam of hot Genomax sires 0200HO03949 Ladys-Manor Olympian (Alchemy) and 0200HO10203 Ladys-Manor Doorsopen (Doorman). Like all Semex sires, Octoberfest's maternal line is deep, with the next five dams all being Excellent.

"We used Octoberfest heavily as a sire of sons," says Sire Analyst Julien Chabot. "He's a great outcross sire for many bloodlines and his dam is one of the most complete cows in the breed with three high impact sons at Semex... Olympian, Octoberfest and Doorsopen."
