GENEX Sold Over 10-Million Units of GenChoice Semen
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 06/16/2017
The Shawano-based Genex Cooperative announced it has sold more than 10 million units of its sexed semen product to dairy and beef producers over the past decade. The GenChoice was first released 10 years ago and now the company is selling record
numbers of the units.
GENEX COO Keith Heikes says sexed semen has become a mainstay in the cattle industry.
"To increase genetic progress within a herd, more and more producers are choosing to utilize sexed semen on their highest genetic merit heifers and cows," states Heikes. "This strategic breeding leads to more genetically superior heifer calves."
Meanwhile, the cooperative says they recently added GenChoice 4M semen to its lineup. This new product contains twice the number of female sperm cells than traditional GenChoice semen and is expected to positively impact conception rates.
