Red & White Dairy Cattle Interest Continues Unabated

The 2013 U.S. Red & White / RC semen sales worldwide increased at a significant rate of 21% as compared with 2012. At nearly one million unit semen sales, 2013 established a new record. The previous record of 793,244 unit sales was set in 2012. Note that export sales exceed domestic sales by 156,597 units.

The performance chasm between Black & White and Red & White dairy cattle is closing rapidly. Consequently, the influence of U.S. daughter proven sires and the growing interest in genomic tested young sires has contributed to the increase in sales of Red & White semen around the world. The influence of polled Red & White has also contributed to the growing demand for this color preference of U.S. genetics. Complete data is shown in the accompanying chart.


Total Red & White / Red Carrier semen sales continue in a commanding No. 3 position as a dairy breed sector, behind Holstein and Jersey.
