ProfitSOURCE sires can significantly impact your herd’s bottom line by increasing the revenue from your lower genetic value females. Select Sires’ ProfitSOURCE sires have been selected for crossbreeding on Holsteins and Jerseys. These sires excel for calving ease, growth performance, carcass merit, and they offer elite fertility to maximize reproductive performance. The lineup of ProfitSOURCE sires will include elite terminal beef bulls designed to meet specific genetic criteria.

Fertility without compromise

Select Sires has earned a reputation for having the most fertile semen in the A.I. industry. Using conception data along with quality control evaluations, beef sires designated as Fertility Verified have been field tested and achieved Select Sires’ industry-leading quality standards.
