Dairy farming facts: What is sexed semen?

Sexed semen can help dairy farmers make sure more female calves are born.  However, the conception rate is slightly lower with sexed semen, particularly for cows already being milked, so that it is mainly recommended for heifers who will be having their first calf. For this reason sexed semen is not used as widely as unsexed semen at present.
