Semex has added a new polled gene line to its U.S. lineups, giving producers access to a non-invasive solution to dehorning.

New to the Semex Polled and Genomax lineups in the U.S. is Semex’s new number one polled bull, Lorka Zumba P. Ranking high on the heterozygous polled listing at +2326 GTPI, Zumba P offers +751 NM$, +1412 PTAM, 5.5 Calving Ease, +1.8 DPR, +5.8 PL and +2.05 PTAT.

A son by Earnhardt P, his dam is a Meteor from a VG-87 4* Bolton with nine VG daughters to date and over 121,000 pounds of milk in just three lactations. Next is an EX-90 Cevis and then multiple generations of high producing, high scoring cows.

“We’re working to meet the needs of the polled breeder,” says Brad Sayles, vice president global marketing. “The interest in these bulls has skyrocketed in recent years and our clients are looking to take advantage of the polled gene while incorporating the most profitable genetics possible. Adding Zumba P to our lineup certainly does this by offering high GTPI as well as great functional traits, tremendous mammary systems and solid type."PD
