Select Sires Recieves USDA Grant for Sexed Semen

Andy Vance

Select Sires earned a $300,000 Rural Business Cooperative Value Added Producer Grant from USDA this month, supporting Select’s efforts in commercializing Gender SELECTed sexed semen. Select will match the grant dollar for dollar in marketing and educational efforts promoting the product, highlighting the pros and cons of using sexed semen in production.

We’ve talked about Gender SELECTed semen before, noting how it can propel your heifer calf ratio above 90% on first calf heifers.
