PLAIN CITY, Ohio, January 18, 2022 – Skilled veterinary staff from Select Sires Inc. and experts from The Ohio State University provided extensive care to 7HO15167 GAMEDAY prior to his passing in mid-January. The sire’s death was the result of gastrointestinal ailments that could not be reversed. With limited product in inventory, GAMEDAY semen will be exclusively available to NxGEN® members at this time.

While his passing is unfortunate, GAMEDAY’s elite rank should not go unnoticed. This NxGEN headliner continues to be a breed-leader with +3033 GTPI®, +1,055 Net Merit (NM$), +1,082 Herd Health Profit Dollars (HHP$) and +1,066 Dairy Wellness Profit Index (DWP$®). Dairies looking for next-level genetic gains are encouraged to complete and submit the NxGEN membership form online at Herds with a NxGEN membership will have the greatest opportunity to capitalize on GAMEDAY’s genetic power while inventory remains available.
