A unit of semen brings real value to a dairy farmer when it results in a cow pregnant with a female calf. A healthy heifer needs to be born and only then can genetic progress be seen. That’s where the value is found.
At a time when efficiency is crucial on dairy farms, producers need to reduce their variables. Creating pregnancies with conventional semen is like flipping a coin – the odds of getting a male or female calf are generally the same.
Using Sexcel, customers have the power to decide, with as much precision as biology and technology currently allows, which part of the herd will pass on their genetics and make replacement heifers for the next generation.
