GENUS ABS GET GOLD, SILVER AND BRONZE IN THE TYPE SIRE RANKING


The UK number one Type sire is now Curtismill Mr Sam with a Type Merit score of 3.13.  Curtis is the most balanced Mr Sam son on the market; good fat and protein also make him one of Genus ABS’ ‘Cheesemaker’ bulls.  Stephanie Whittaker, Genus ABS Business Development Manager, comments “Curtis has tremendous udders; high and wide with deep creases set way above the hock.  Daughters display beautiful bone quality with superb locomotion”.  Curtis is currently on offer to Cornerstone Club members.

Following closely behind Curtis as the current UK number two Type sire is the increasingly popular Goldwyn son, Bassingthorpe Bossman. Scoring 3.02 Type Merit this reliable sire has Rock Solid status with over 100 daughters in 60 herds.  Stephanie continues, “Bossman is fast becoming one of the hottest bulls on the planet.  He sires fantastic frames, high wide and firmly attached udders and produces some of the best feet and legs in the breed.  Our team has seen Bossman work on a wide range of farms and they are incredibly consistent.  Bossman is a bull to rely on.”

As he approaches the huge milestone of producing over one million doses of semen, the world renowned Picston Shottle is third in the Type ranking with a score of 2.53.  His daughters continue to impress with Richaven Shottle Squaw VG88 recently claiming the ‘Super Cow’ title at Agriscot show.

Commenting on the news from the December 2011 proofs, Stephanie said “Having the top four UK type bulls is no surprise with our Cornerstone breeding programme which utilises genomics to select the highest quality bulls to test through the Cornerstone programme.  These industry leading results are a testament to the quality of Cornerstone, which has over 3,000 members to ensure our bulls are tested thoroughly on a wide range of systems.  Having the top four type bulls, which includes two second crop bulls shows the standard and reliability of our bulls.”
