Genus straw offers three-in-one quality

A NEW combination of three of the most popular Continental beef sires in one AI straw is available from Genus Breeding.

The company has launched its third mix of Fertility Plus semen, which is proven to increase conception rates by 6-9% because of a competition effect from mixing different bulls semen.

This latest mix is of Belgian Blue, Limousin and Simmental sires. Sires from different breeds are used to allow the sire of progeny to be identified.

All three sires are guaranteed to produce excellent calves with good shape and value, says Genus. It adds that sires included have graduated from the Genus calving survey, ensuring reliable calving ease.

Fertility Plus Three costs £8 a dose (0870-1622000, fax 01270-217777).
