Genetic Strategies to Maximize Profit
ProfitMAX™ helps customers better achieve long-term profitability from future herd replacements and improve short-term cash flow by increasing the value of extra calves to be sold to the beef market.
The goal of this program is to increase your herd’s profitability:
- Identify areas to increase profit
- Determine proper herd inventories
- Increase profits from lower-value genetics
- Create elite replacements from your best genetics
- Improve short-term cash flow
Through a comprehensive reproductive and genetic audit utilizing your dairy operation’s herd management records, you will gain a better understanding of the current cow and heifer benchmarks for reproductive efficiency as well as the genetic value of each individual animal in your herd inventory. The assessment will also provide a better understanding of the performance impact from previous genetic inputs and provide a basis to examine future operation goals.
Based on each individual dairy operation’s future goals for the milking herd inventory, All West/Select Sires’ reproductive and genetic specialists will provide an audit of current cow and heifer inventory levels using the Optimal Genetic Pathways calculator. This audit will provide projections for the number of replacement heifers needed to meet future herd size goals.

Complete a Genetic Audit
ProfitMAX provides reproductive and genetic audits from the dairy operation’s herd management software program to help you better understand the current cow and heifer benchmarks for reproductive efficiency and genetic levels and identify genetic opportunities to attain future goals. Select Sires’ reproductive and genetic specialists will provide an audit of your cow and heifer inventory using the Optimal Genetic Pathways calculator to project the correct number of replacements needed to meet the goals you have set for your herd’s future.
Achieve Goals, Maximize Profits
Select Sires professionals will help you determine the best combination of elite sires with conventional semen, sex-sorted semen, or embryos to generate the most profitable replacements to reach your goals. Beef semen may be used on lower genetic value animals to create higher-value feeder calves, increasing short-term cash flow.
Increase Cash Flow
ProfitMAX features Angus, Simmental and Limousin sires specifically selected for crossbreeding on Holsteins and Jerseys. Their offspring excel in daily gain and carcass merit, while providing calving ease. All ProfitMAX beef sires offer elite fertility to maximize reproductive performance.
