Using sexed semen is an excellent way to optimise your herd’s performance both from a genetic and management perspective. How can you achieve higher genetic progress in your herd and maximise the return on investment?
There are several genetic aspects in using X-Vik that will ensure a higher genetic gain from one generation to the next.
VikingGenetics' bulls deliver a strong genetic gain thanks to well-designed breeding schemes with a focus on improving health, production and efficiency. This gain will be transmitted into your herd with a delay of one generation.
Below you can see the genetic gain from bulls and the delay in your cows, and how you can close the generation gap between bulls and your herd by making the plan for “on-farm” selection and breeding decisions.
Using X-Vik semen on your best animals will optimise progress in your herd. You ensure that the next generation comes from the best cows and you exclude the poorest genetics from the future production animals. This leads to more genetically superior animals that are well-suited for your production environment and thereby deliver a better profit.
