Frequently Asked Questions

Please read the following to learn more about the GENEX VIP Genetics program. If you have additional questions, email vip@genex.coop.

What breeds are offered in the GENEX VIP Genetics program?

We offer elite Holstein and Jersey sires. Depending on availability, both breeds may not always be represented in the program.

Why does GENEX require a contract for this program?

The VIP Genetics program provides you with priority access to bulls that we expect to be high impact sires. Normally the A.I. industry would designate these sires as “mating sires,” meaning semen from these bulls would experience a long delay before commercial availability. A contract agreement enables us to release semen to you much sooner with clear terms and conditions for all parties.

What can I expect from enrollment in the VIP Genetics program?

Within the GENEX VIP program, we commit to giving program participants the highest priority when allocating semen from these elite sires. However, we cannot assure the timeliness of fulfilling orders placed through the program, as product inventory and availability cannot be guaranteed. Furthermore, GENEX outlines its commitment should the organization choose to exercise the option to purchase any progeny in accordance with the terms and conditions as defined in the GENEX VIP program agreement.

Which sires are designated to GENEX VIP? Where can I find this information?

We will routinely designate sires to the GENEX VIP Genetics program. These sires will be marketed exclusively in the USA and Canada, under the terms and conditions of the contract, to those enrolled in the program. When new sires are added to the program, we will update the sire listing at www.genex.coop/vip and share the update with program enrollees via email.

What restrictions will be set on the offspring or embryos produced from GENEX VIP sires?

All restrictions agreed upon regarding GENEX VIP offspring or embryos are detailed in the GENEX VIP agreement. If you have further questions, please contact our program administrator by emailing vip@genex.coop.

If I am enrolled in the program, am I guaranteed semen on the sires I want?

Semen on bulls designated as GENEX VIP sires can only be purchased if you have a signed agreement and are in good standing with GENEX. A signed agreement does not guarantee availability of GENEX VIP sires. We cannot guarantee production levels and production consistency. However, your signed agreement grants you the highest priority to receive the semen that is available, and you will be notified of any production or supply issues that prevent an order from being fulfilled.

What is the duration of the GENEX VIP program agreement?

The GENEX VIP agreement is renewable every two years. However, any resulting offspring or embryos from GENEX VIP sires are subject to the terms outlined in the agreement in place when the semen was purchased.

How much will I pay per unit of semen?

The price of all GENEX VIP sires depends on the availability and demand for their genetics. Please speak with your GENEX representative or email vip@genex.coop regarding standard pricing information.

How do I enroll?

To enroll, you must be a GENEX USA cooperative member or GENEX Canada customer in good standing. If so, you may begin the enrollment process by submitting a request for an agreement to vip@genex.coop.

How will I get the semen?

You will be notified by a GENEX representative when your order will be filled. All semen must be shipped directly from a GENEX distribution center to the dairy that has signed the agreement and placed the order. A delivery notice from the third-party delivery service will constitute validation that the semen purchased was delivered to you.
