Semex Sires Drive Profitability In April Proofs

Semex’s corporate mission is to ‘Create value by developing and delivering innovative genetic solutions.’ We do not take this for granted, and each genetic evaluation gives us the opportunity to reaffirm this commitment to our clients, whether they’re seeking GTPI, Type, Net Merit $, or Calving Ease. Exclusive at Semex, clients are also choosing Immunity+™ sires as a key part of their herd health and fertility, while also driving profitability at the farm gate.

“Some cows and cow families just do not get sick,” says Semex CEO Paul Larmer. “They go virtually unnoticed in the herd, doing their job day in and day out. Worldwide, dairymen are requesting these sires because they know, just like we know, that it makes sense. And, lowering drug costs and increasing productivity through healthier calves and cows is a goal of all producers everywhere. In 2013, Dairy Herd Management recognized Immunity+ as an ‘Innovative Product of the Year’ at World Dairy Expo. This was a very definite endorsement from the dairy industry that this technology is truly unique, valuable and a game changer.”
