August Proof Run Returns a Hat Trick for Semex

The latest proof run sees Semex UK take the number one  slot in three of the four main Holstein UK rankings
On the proven rankings Gen-I-Beq ATTICO RED tops the UK an International list on Type Merit with +3.48. The number one slot on the Genomic rankings for UKTM goes to newly released bull, Claynook DAILY at +3.04. Westcoast GUARANTEE with a PLI at £737 also takes pole position in the proven PLI rankings.
“It has been a great day at the office for Semex”, says Michael Dennison, National Sales Manager, Semex UK.
“It is gratifying to see our faith in our genomic testing programme paying off and that irrespective of their genomic numbers, our sires when tried and tested under UK conditions will perform. Alongside this we not only have the number one genomic bull for UKTM but also the number 2 bull with Oh-River-Syc CRUSHABULL. This is a real testament to our genomic sire testing program Genomax”.
When ranked on mammary score this proof run returns four of the top 10 bulls to the Semex stud. “Daughters from bulls such as Immunity+™ sire Stantons ALLIGATOR  have continued to breed cows with outstanding mammary systems”, explains Michael.
“This has been a wonderful proof run for Semex topping the rankings on so many fronts. However, the diversity in the Semex stud continues to be second to none, with sires to cater for every dairy farmer irrespective of their breeding objective”, concludes Michael.
