I just spent the morning learning about sexed semen and the potential benefits it has for both registered and commercial beef producers. Sexing Technologies has the patent on sexed semen markets it worldwide. It allows users to choose the sex of calves and is 90 percent accurate. The potential to select gender is a relatively new option in commercial beef cattle, but one that could increase profit considerably in certain situations.
Widely used in the dairy world, Sexing Technologies is currently aggressively promoting their product to beef cattle producers. Visit www.sexingtechnologies.com for more information and keep an eye in the Roundup for my article covering the topic.
