We enrolled in the NxGEN program to secure early access to the best bulls-it’s as simple as that.
-Denton Ross, co-owner, Arizona Dairy Company, Mesa, AriZ.
I’m not interested in using NxGEN genetics to create sires for stud, if that were to happen, it would be a nice bonus. Instead, I like that through NxGEN, I can get elite bulls at a fair price and improve the genetics in my herd.
-Corey Zonneveld, Zonneveld Dairy, Laton, Calif.
