Sexed semen seen as the way forward in a Holstein dairy herd in Co. Antrim

3 week old Friesian Holstein bull calves are making 10 pounds Sterling  while Continental Limousin bulls are making 300 pounds Sterling at the same age. This client is using sexed semen from some of the top Holstein sires on his maiden heifers to generate replacements. Beef sires are used on the dairy cows which reduces the overall costs of introducing replacements.  It avoids the associated costs of producing Holstein bull calves, and increases the profit from producing beef calves.
