GENUS ABS ACQUIRES INTERNATIONAL PHENOMENON, DG CHARLEY


Genus ABS has finalised the acquisition of world famous sire DG Charley from the elite genetics supplier Diamond Genetics from the Netherlands.

 

“Genus ABS is excited to add a sire of this genetic calibre to our global offering,” says Stephanie Whittaker, Europe, Middle East & Africa Dairy Brand Manager. “It’s unique to find a sire that appeals to as many international markets at such a young age as DG Charley does.”

 

DG Charley comes from a particularly strong pedigree, the globally renowned Larcrest Cosmopolitan family. He’s a Supershot son from DG Candide, a Mogul from Larcrest Cale VG-89, followed by Larcrest Crimson EX-93.

 

Charley rose to fame in May of 2015 as the number one GTPI bull in the world. He has remained at the top of the genomic sire lists in the UK, Italy and USA ever since. Producers can expect modern Holstein efficiency from DG Charley with his combination of extreme production (1,023 Milk, +35.8 Fat, +29.9 Protein), superior fitness (+0.7 Lifespan, -20 SCC, +8.6 Fertility Index), and moderate frame size.

 

“It is rare to find a bull that offers the unique combinations of medium size and a flawless profile for feet and legs and udders, as well as outstanding production and great daughter fertility,” says Ryan Starkenburg, Senior Dairy Geneticist. “When a bull has those unique attributes in addition to great calving ability and fantastic cell counts, it is easy to understand why Charley’s genetic profile is highly sought after by breeders around the world.”

 

DG Charley will reside in Genus ABS’ United Kingdom facilities, and producers will have access to his genetics starting with the August 2016 Sire Summary.
