Semex Holstein Sires Dominate the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair

Semex Holstein Sires Dominate the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair

Following a remarkable show season and an impressive World Dairy Expo, Semex’s Braedale Goldwyn continued to show the world why he is so dominant in the show ring, siring an impressive 27% of the entire Canadian National Holstein Show at the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair in Toronto, Ontario!

Goldwyn’s remarkable accomplishments and his resume continues to grow, as he was once again named the Premier Sire, siring seven class winners including: Intermediate Champion; Reserve Intermediate Champion; Honorable Mention Intermediate Champion; Grand Champion & Best Udder of the Show; Reserve Grand Champion; Honorable Mention Grand Champion; and the Production Award Winner!

Just like at World Dairy Expo, visitors from around the world anxiously awaited Goldwyn daughters to enter the ring. These ladies needed no introduction, being known by their short names alone and included… Happy Go Lucky, Barbara, Cameron, Monique, Bubble Gum, Allie, Chalou, and of course Hailey, all of which dazzled the crowd.
