Semex is saddened to announce the passing of its 11th Millionaire Sire, R-E-W Buckeye. Proven through Semex’s Premier young sire proving program in the U.S. in August 2005, Buckeye’s popularity was instantaneous, arriving as one of the world’s most popular BW Marshall sons and ranking No. 4 TPI.

In February 2006, Buckeye climbed to the No. 2 TPI position, commanding international respect for his desirable production, solid type and in-demand health traits.

Buckeye daughters were known for exceptional feet and legs, mobility and flatness of bone. They had tremendous udders that were silky, very well attached and were designed to handle large volumes of milk. His status as a calving ease sire only added to his popularity, selling into well over 50 countries worldwide.

“Buckeye was one of the ultimate breeder satisfaction bulls,” says Brad Sayles, Semex vice president of global marketing. “He delivered long-lasting, profitable cows that their owners loved because they were milky, dairy and profitable. His daughters are still impacting their herds, being long-lasting and profitable.” PD
