Sexcel® Sexed Genetics – Make your heifer replacement from your best cows.
A unit of semen brings no real value to a dairy farmer unless 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.
Sexcel provides a high probability of success. Observations using ABS Global’s Real World Data® (RWD™) index demonstrated that Sexcel achieves a 90% relative conception rate to conventional semen.
*Results varies according to management, environment and animal.
Sexcel Sexed Genetics is available for: Holstein, Jersey, and Norwegian Red.

What customers have to say
“We’re trying to take advantage of the genetic potential all of our cows have through the GMS mating and we are trying to eliminate the worst by getting rid of those genetics with the beef and also the time same time we’re producing a calf that we’re getting a really nice premium on compared to our regular Holstein bull calf.”
