Semex's Genomax™ Program Most Sought After Worldwide

Many past Genomax stars have gone on to be among the world’s most sought after proven sires. This includes 0200HO07450 Amighetti Numero Uno, now ranking #12 on Holstein USA's Top 100 TPI International list at +2407 GTPI. And, in Canada, Numero Uno gained over 250 LPI points since April, ranking him #2 for LPI and #4 for the brand new Pro$.

Graduating from the Genomax program in August is the highly-anticipated 0200HO02770 Sully Hart Meridian (Domain x Planet x Shottle) who is the best option in the Top 100 TPI International list for dairymen looking for milk and type at +1865 PTAM and +2.87 PTAT, and he ranks as #25 overall at +2333 GTPI! He's A2A2™, Calving Ease™, Repromax™ and a Show Time™ sire that is extremely popular worldwide. ‪

Seven Holsteins by five different sires joined the US Genomax lineup in August, averaging +2515 GTPI, over $670 NM$ and +5.5 PL. These sires join over 100 other sires in the US Genomax lineup that now has 38 sires over +2500 GTPI, averaging well over +1100 PTAM, +112 Combined F&P, nearly $700 NM$ and a solid +1.95 PTAT.
