Deangate Quentin is the number one Fertility index and locomotion Friesian sire as well as having outstanding scores for the other management, health and fitness traits. He is one of the best ever proven sires for improving daughter fertility from any breed, his Fertility Index score of +8.30 is equivalent to +17.3 on the Holstein base. With the gradual decline in fertility of the dairy cows in the UK over the past few years, Quentin would make a great choice for farmers wanting to improve fertility in their herds and with a direct calving ease score of +2.9 and being available as sexed semen he also makes a great choice for the heifer pen this spring.

His dam Deangate Queenie 14th BFE93, is milking well in her tenth lactation having calved regularly each year and her dam was one of three Excellent and two Very Good maternal sisters.
