Many are the times we develop a strong relationship with people in our line of duty. Semex Representative to Kenya, Mr. Pierre Marx broke the news of his retirement from Semex in October 2019. His 15 years of service to improving the genetic potential of dairy cows in Kenya has been well appreciated and felt in the dairy areas.
Pierre’s work on Dairy genetic improvement has won awards in Kenya, just to mention but a few: The Dairy Supreme Champion during the 2018 Livestock Breeders Show at Jamhuri Park was sired by a Semex Bull. Pierre built a team of young professionals by instilling basic knowledge of genetics both in Twiga Chemicals and the larger veterinary
profession during Continuous Professional Development Trainings. He propagated the seed of Genetic Technology into Kenya (Immunity Plus Sires) which is the most unique and fantastic trait that will propel the
dairy farmer to successful farming.
Twiga family prays that he succeeds in all his future endeavors as he engages in the next step of life. We sincerely welcome the new Semex Representative Mr. Owain Harries to continue with the noble task Pierre initiated to grow the Semex brand in Kenya. We shall miss Pierre Marx!
