THE UK'S GREATEST BREEDING PROGRAMME SETS THE STANDARD FOR BOVINE GENETICS!


Genus ABS is delighted to announce another exceptionally strong line-up of 19 new graduates this December sire proof run, which includes 11 new genomic and eight Sexation bulls.

 

The UK Cornerstone Breeding Programme has proved yet again that it is setting the standard in bovine genetic development. As a group the Cornerstone graduates will increase fat and protein percentages, drive overall milk volume and reduce calving interval through their improved fertility index. They will also reduce the incidence of health problems with their increased focus on health and fitness traits.

 

Apina NADAL enters the line-up as Genus ABS’ highest ranking genomic PLI sire, with a score of £682. This uniquely bred, exceptionally high type (+2.32) sire also scores 4-stars on the TransitionRight™ index. With his outstanding scores for PLI and type combined with his ability to improve fat and protein percentages, Nadal is the complete package.

 

Carnhill Iota ACER is yet another exceptional proven graduate from the UK Cornerstone breeding programme. This UK powerhouse hails from the world famous Lou Etta family and with a lineage that boasts 10 generations of very good and excellent dams, this exciting sire looks set to create a great deal of interest. Larissa Jones, Dairy Product Manager is thrilled about his arrival: “I am delighted to introduce this home-grown sire from one of the greatest cow families in the UK. He is a tremendously comprehensive sire delivering high milk yields, a positive fertility index, longevity and 4-stars on the TransitionRight™ index.  His daughters will display great strength, mammary systems, rump and fertility.”

 

Moet Bellissimo is a spectacular component improver. Andrew Rutter, UK Breeding Programme Manager, comments: “Bellissimo will produce undemanding, easy-to-manage daughters with serious component percentages. His dam was one of the final graduates from the Moet programme and I am delighted that we are able to offer such a fantastic son, from a superb family”.

 

Alongside these fantastic UK sires, a number of outstanding proven graduates join our line-up from the USA. Zimmeracres M-O-F DAVID excels for components (+0.08 fat and +0.09 protein) and daughter fertility (+8.9). With his excellent calving ease, a complete milk profile that includes +1.52 for milking speed, this rare Manifold son is the complete package.

 

Taycas Beacon VALOR will produce daughters with balanced type (+2.31), production and fitness traits. He also provides fantastic udder improvement, producing daughters with high and wide rear udder attachments with ideal teat placement. Alongside his many credentials, he is equally victorious in his ability to boost fertility.

 

Larcrest CONTOUR is a superb son from the legendary Cosmopolitan family. He transmits improvements in calving ease and all-round health and fitness. Contour scores 5-stars on the TransitionRight™ index – the highest possible rating, meaning that his daughters are pre-disposed to progress through the transition period with fewer health problems.

 

Tifecta Observ SOPRANO is currently the highest type proven son in the Genus ABS stud – his phenomenal score of 3.54 also makes him number three on the international ranking. With a PLI of £399, exceptional health, fitness, somatic cell count score and fertility, Soprano is a striking edition to the Genus ABS stud.
