Sexed Semen's Time

Sexed semen is a technology whose time may have arrived for the beef industry.

“The U.S. beef industry is slowly increasing the use of sexed semen. Countries, such as Brazil, already use sexed semen extensively,” said John Hall, superintendent of the Nancy M. Cummings Center at the University of Idaho, and a beef Extension specialist.

Seedstock producers in the U.S. are increasingly interested in sexed semen to produce more replacement heifers.
