The August 2014 sire evaluations for CRV brought exciting new Holstein InSires and proven graduates with the basis to building a healthier and more efficient herd through CRV’s Better Life Health (BLH) and Better Life Efficiency (BLE) indices.
Exciting new additions
Headlining the new InSires is Barnkamper Monrovia (Mogul x Brilliant), debuting at +2419 GTPI and 137 CFP. With a 5.8 SCE, +2.79 UDC, and 10% BLE, Monrovia is a complete package bull that will fit any breeding program.
Caudumer Powerplay PP RC (Parker P x Magna P) ranks among the top of the active homozygous polled list at +2060 GTPI. His high component percentages and great calving ease at 4.7 SCE makes him an attractive polled option.
Hammer-Creek MGL Karhart-ET (Mogul x Snowman) provides tremendous component pounds with +86 lbs fat and +72 lbs orotein and will increase your herd’s efficiency with 10% BLE.
View-Home MCC Beta-ET (McCutchen x Robust) is the complete package bull debuting on the lineup with +2399 GTPI, +2.92 PTAT, and 140 pounds combined fat and protein.
Rounding out the new InSires, Dude, Art, and Solid have a lot to offer for every breeding program. Melarry Denim Dude-ET (Denim x Bookem) is a health trait king coming in at +6.6 PL, +2.5 DPR, and 10% BLH. Pen-Col Art-ET (Numero Uno x Observer) is an udder specialist debuting on the CRV lineup as the highest bull for UDC at +3.78.
Regancrest-R MC Solid-ET (McCutchen x Man O Man) is a very balanced bull for production and type with +1579 lbs milk and +2.50 PTAT.
Numero Uno sons
Two Numero Uno sons joined the InSire lineup this proof run. Apina Norman (Numero Uno x Ramos) is the #1 genomic sire in the United Kingdom, and is now available. With high component percents, +6.0 PL, +2.4 DPR and 10% BLE, Norman is an efficiency superstar.
Langs-Twin-B Uno Cayman-ET (Numero Uno x Robust), coming from the Ralma Juror Faith family, debuts on the lineup at 141 pounds of combined fat and protein and +2387 GTPI.
Returning InSire Regan (McCutchen x Dorcy) is the highest bull on the lineup for GTPI, jumping to +2424. Grand (Mogul x Altaiota) remains an exciting combination of type and production with +2265 lbs milk, +3.47 PTAT and +2.95 UDC.
