A SUCCESSFUL PROOF RUN FOR GENUS ABS


 Stephanie Whittaker, Genetics Business Development Manager, comments, “It is has been a great summer proof run for Genus ABS. Our sires dominate the top ten of the UK Type Merit charts with Bassingthorpe Bossman positioned first, Curtismill Mr Sam in second and Scientific Destry  in fourth.  In the UK PLI rankings, Genus ABS has twenty six sires in the top 50. In the USA, they have six bulls in the top 25 TPI listings, with Coynes Farms Dorcy & Larcrest Cancun in the top ten.

 

Genus ABS have also graduated some exciting new UK sires.  “Sherdon Irresistible, a Maestro X Zelati X Hairy Breiz, is an outcross sire with no Shottle, Goldwyn or Oman in his pedigree. Irresistible scores £225 PLI with superb components, +0.27% fat & +0.12% protein, he is positive for every health & fitness trait. Combine the fact he carries condition, has negative stature with wide rumps, and makes him one of the most attractive sires for British farmers to use. Ballycairn Jardin Theodore is a Jardin X Goldwyn X Jester. This fantastic Jardin son scores £202 PLI, carrying 713kgs Milk with +0.10% protein. Theodore scores positive for fertility with a negative cell count and scores well for locomotion at 2.16. These are the only two bulls in the UK with over +0.10% protein and over £200 PLI, and both are Cornerstone breeding programme graduates!”

He is from the renowned Larcrest Cosmopolitan’s, one of the most influential Holstein cow families today. He scores over 3 points on Type and Mammary, over 2 points legs & feet with an uncompromising 778 kgs milk and £190 PLI. Regan-ALH Doodad is a Mac X Oman X Durham, a son of ALH Destiny who traces back to the famous Markwell Blackstar Raven EX95. He scores £190 PLI with positive fat & protein percentages. De-Su Gaylin is a Planet X Oman X B W Marshall with high production, a balanced linear & a positive Lifespan score of 0.4. Fantasy Orageux is a Jose X Adam X Mtoto. This excellent outcross pedigree has no Shottle, Oman or Goldwyn. He is a calving ease specialist with average stature & a type merit score of 2.87. ”
