A unit of semen brings no real value to a dairy farmer unless it results in a cow pregnant with a female calf. A healthy heifer needs to be born and only then can genetic progress be seen. That’s where the value is found.

At a time when efficiency is crucial on dairy farms, producers need to reduce their variables. Creating pregnancies with conventional semen is like flipping a coin – the odds of getting a male or female calf are generally the same.

Using Sexcel, customers have the power to decide with, as much precision as biology and technology currently allows, which part of the herd will pass on their genetics and make replacement heifers for the next generation.

Sexcel provides a high probability of success. Observations using ABS Global’s Real World Data® (RWD™) index demonstrated that Sexcel achieves a 90% relative conception rate to conventional semen.*Results varies according to management, environment and animal.

Sexcel Sexed Genetics is available for: Holstein, Jersey, and Norwegian Red.

How to tell if your MVE tank is still under warranty.

For MVE tanks serial numbers can tell you when your tank was made.  The warranty expires 3 years for vapor and 5 years from wet tanks from the date made.  All newer tanks start with NPB, If it does not start with NPB then the tank is very old and will not be under warranty.  Next 4 digits is the year.  Next 2 digits is the week.  The last 4 digits is the order the tanks were made  and the last letter references the kind of tank it is.

E.g. NBB2022010810S

  • NPB = A constant. The manufacturers location
  • 2022 = The year of manufacture
  • 01 – The week of manufacture
  • 0810 – The # of the tank in lineup for the week
  • XC20S – The tank model
