GENUS ABS RANK HIGH ON THE PLI RANKINGS


 

 

Genus ABS, the world’s largest breeding company, has continued their recent run of good form in the August sire proof release with a number of new sires to offer farmers

 

David Guthrie, Dairy Product Manager, comments, “Everyone has been waiting with great anticipation on the release of the new reconfigured PLI score which promotes long life profitable cows.”  In these new UK production rankings, Genus ABS have twenty six sires in the top 50, with four sires in the top 10, including Ballycairn Pelloand Laurelhill Classic.

 

David continues, “We have a great range of new graduates to launch over the coming weeks. My highlights from the August proofs are: RMW Armitage (Man-O-Man x Goldwyn x Oman) who was heavily used as a genomic sire of sons and sire of our top selling genomic sire; Pesky.  He is the complete health, fitness and component sire. Welcome Gerwyn (Freddie x Goldwyn x Addison) hails from the same family that produced the high selling Genus ABS sire Garrison, he combines a very balanced proof with huge PLI and Fertility Index. Siring medium sized cows with strength and fantastic rumps is Touchdown Fred Franchise (Freddie x Shottle x BW Marshall), his dam is full sister to our top selling sire, End-Road Beacon.”

 

“From same cow family as the renowned genomic sire, Seagul-Bay Silver is Ballycairn Planet Maximum (Planet x Shottle x Oman).  He has sired seven VG daughters to date. Maximum is a type and production specialist that offers an increase in teat length. Wa Del Myrle(Leif x Encino x Oman) is from the great Rudy Missy family. He is an outcross pedigree, with outstanding health and fertility traits. Pine Tree Pampa (Planet x O Man x Rudolph) will sire medium sized cows, with super chest width and scores a fantastic £491 for PLI. Pampa’s full brother is Pine Tree Picardus who offers a massive milk score of 942kg, siring wide open ribbed cows with great component kilos.  De-Su Navarro (Freddie x Bolton x Manager) is an elite type sire scoring over 4 points for fertility index & positive for lifespan. UFM-Dubs Dutch (Man O Man x Shottle) is an early Man O Man son scoring a super 5.3 points for fertility index and great components (Fat +0.06% & Protein +0.07%).”

 

 

David concludes, “To top off a great proof run, Seagull Bay Silver has hit the number one spot for GTPI making him the most exciting genomic sire in the world”.
