THE SEARCH IS ON FOR THE GENUS ABS LONG LIFE COW 2014


Following the phenomenal success of the 2013 Genus ABS Long Life Cow competition. The hunt is now on for the Long Life Cow of 2014.

 

A tremendous response was received, with a variety of breeds and farming systems. The Winner of the Genus Long Life Cow Competition 2013 was Cimarron Even Jenny owned by Jane Edwards of the Cimarron partnership announced at 2013 Livestock Show. This year, prizes will be awarded to the highest placed cow from each county and four regional winners will be invited to UK Dairy Day on 17th September to announce the overall winner.

 

Andrew Rutter, Genus Breeding Programme Manager, comments, “The quality of entries we received last year really highlighted the durability of the UK cows and the excellence of UK stockmanship. It proved that high yielding cows can also be long life cows, with short calving intervals, low cell counts, excellent fertility and overall longevity.”

 

“There are many factors which affect how long a cow will last in a herd. What is the perfect combination of traits that makes the right cow for your system? Your best Long Life Cow may be a cow with an impressive lifetime yield, a cow that breeds back regularly,a cow that has never had mastitis, a cow that has never had her feet trimmed, or a cow that has never seen the vet.” concludes Andrew Rutter.
