THE PROBLEM OF QUALITY SUCKLER REPLACEMENTS SOLVED!


 

 

“There has been increased interest from suckler farmers looking to rear replacements as opposed to buy in stock in recent years,” observes Genus ABS Beef Business Development Manager Dominic Mason.  “This is mainly due to the variable quality of stock available in the market, but also due to biosecurity with farmers increasingly aware of the risk of introducing diseases such as Johnes with purchased replacements.”

 

Rearing replacements ensures the highest levels of biosecurity and disease control while at the same time allows an increase in the genetic merit of the female lines in the herd through breeding for specific maternal traits such as calving ease and milk yield. 

 

Genus ABS Sexation sexed female semen contains 90% female semen in each straw so greatly increasing the probability of producing a female calf and minimising the number of cows that have to be served for replacements, so maximising the cows available to be served to a terminal sire.

 

“Genus ABS Sexation semen offers the suckler farmer the surest way to produce high quality replacements with outstanding maternal traits,” Mr Mason continues.  “Featuring sires from all the leading suckler breeds, all our Sexation sires have been selected for calving ease, birth weight and milk yield.  Ease of calving means that Sexation sires can be used on heifers to maximise genetic gain.”

 

The new release includes Carmorn Dauphin an outstanding Limousin; Ferrari, a polled Hereford; Simmental sire Camus Beaver who will breed power and milk yield into any herd and Mr Radar, an Angus sire who combines high milk yield with exceptional calving ease, making him a perfect choice for use on heifers. 

 

“Genus ABS beef Sexation semen will help suckler producers looking to rear their own replacements to deliver exceptional maternal traits combined with high levels of biosecurity, and in so doing build a sound herd for the future,” Mr Mason concludes.
