A FIT AND HEALTHY RUN FOR GENUS ABS


 

Genus ABS has had a fantastic proof run this April with sires excelling in the traits which help to improve their customer’s profitability.

 

New releases to the Genus ABS line-up are two Jeeves sons Zeber and Jettie alongside Sherac and Gonzo, all of which excel for lifespan, cell counts, fertility and overall profitability.

 

Stephanie Whittaker, Dairy Brand Manager at Genus ABS, comments, “I looked at the average scores of the key economic traits of this group of new bulls to see what impact they could make to our customers.”

Trait

Average score of group

What this means?

PLI

Reduce days open by 2 days

Somatic Cell Counts

-14

On a herd with SCC of 200, will reduce cell count by 28

Lifespan

“Without doubt these averages mean that the group of new graduates are all geared up to increase dairy farmers overall profitability.”

 

Stephanie continues, “These are not the only benefits that this phenomenal group of graduates will bring.  Go-Farm Zeber adds Type with +3.46 UK Type Merit and high Fat percentages with +0.14%.  Clear-Echo Jettie also has high Type with 3.07 Type Merit and excellent udders (+ 2.81).  UFM-Dubs Sherac comes from great cow family and offers dairy farmers high protein.  Carrajuggle Gonzo is the highest PLI of the group at £205 with an excellent calving ease score of +2.7.”

 

“Our focus on long life cows does not end with the new graduates. Our latest brochure only contains bulls which are positive for lifespan, so that we can truly say we are the home of long life cows,” concludes Stephanie.
