Semex’s Jersey Sires Score Big at National Shows

Semex sires demonstrated their ability to shine on the national stage at both the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair’s Canadian National Jersey Show and at the All-American in Louisville, Kentucky.

“It’s amazing and encouraging to see how very often animals by Semex sires wear championship ribbons,” says Semex Jersey Program Manager Russell Gammon.

“Following a stellar showing at World Dairy Expo, Semex sires continued to excel across a variety of national Jersey shows and no matter the venue, modern, Semex sired cattle rose to the top. During the 2012 show season’s grand finales, both north and south of the border, a large number of Jersey sires wearing the 200 stud code claimed ribbons and hardware for their owners. We couldn’t be more please for these breeders and exhibitors.”
