CONCEPTIONS Dairy Route newsletter Spring 2019
The choices have increased as this newsletter highlights. In addition to those sires listed inside, do not overlook 525 HO 117 Ja Bob REX PP Red a homozygous polled “Red” sire who is A2A2 Beta Casein, calving ease, and noted fertility.
We are now seeing the first of polled Fleckveih sires in the dairy type lines as well. In all, we have polled sire choices in Holstein, Red & White, Jersey, Brown Swiss, Ayrshire and Fleckveih.
Polled is the ultimate “convenience” trait, once combined with other genes that have value (such as A2A2 Beta casein) your breeding program can align with what is most attractive to consumers and animal activists.
MAKING PROGRESS WITH POLLED GENETICS
We are currently featuring 80 HO 338 Hulsdale B MACNUTT PP 99% (aAa 243615) (A2A2)
MACNUTT PP is owned by Browndale
Specialty Sires of Ontario, and is currently #1 Type of all
homozygous polled sires (+14 Conf CDN), is the #1 LPI (3172) both for A2A2 Beta Casein and all polled sires, and is the #1 rated Feet and Legs bull (+16 CDN); not bad at +11 Mammaries.
CDN rates him +1050 kg Milk EBV with outstanding +0.25% butterfat and +0.12% protein. His young dam “Hulsdale B Science Malaki P” is already VG-88 at three years of age, and her dam “Hulsdale B Windbrook Mahalo” is scored EX-90 at six years of age.
Think of all the points at which “MACNUTT” offers you a premium value both for convenience of guaranteed POLLED calves that will produce premium value butterfat and protein, walk on correct legs and feet, with “robot ready” udders, and he is that rare A2A2 Beta Casein source.
We also remain pretty excited by 777 HO 408 Falonasprings Jacot HULK P RED (aAa 345216) whose unique dam is seven generations of EXCELLENT mature scores and has a lifetime 4.9% butterfat with 3.6% protein, milked in both Ohio and Alberta. His sire “Jacot” is high type, high bf%, high pr% and no longer available in the USA—so “Hulk” offers access to rare blood.
No longer must Holstein breeders sacrifice anything to acquire the POLLED trait. The best of cow lines, the best current sires, the best type, combines with long lifetime productivity at a premium milk price within our POLLED sire choices.
