    Our selection criteria is based on trying to maximise profitability with priority given to functional type, easy care cows, improving fertility and longevity.  In addition, we have also added genomic testing to our selection criteria with every bull sampled through the programme being genomically tested.

    Cornerstone Breeding Club

    Cornerstone in the UK incorporates over 3000 farmers enabling us to sample 65 bulls in the UK annually.  It is thanks to our Cornerstone members that it allows us to produce bulls with highly reliable proofs and potentially tested on the farm next door to you.

     

    Each young sire is sampled with the potential to have over 100 daughters in 60 herds in their first crop proof, reaching our signature Rock Solid Genetic status.  By achieving this status we can be completely confident in the breeding ability of each of our young bulls and make the informed decision whether bull will graduate or not.
