BEEF SIRE BROCHURE


Introduction BOVA A.I. BEEF SIRES 2013

The Bova team are delighted to present to you our eagerly awaited 2013 Beef Sire Brochure. Now is the time to focus on the market you want to target and breed accordingly with the best possible sires. There is a huge range of sires to choose from at present from the various different AI stations. That is why we at Bova AI strive to offer the very Best Genetics from across all the beef breeds at an AFFORDABLE price. We offer to you our much valued customers, various bulls within each breed which are trait leaders for the relevant markets such as Italy, Spain, the UK and of course our own domestic market. We have invested very heavily in our beef stud in the past few seasons and our young sires are earning a good reputation for the individual qualities they each are transmitting to their progeny. ICBF have once again introduced new indices and customers should note that reliabilities have dropped for all bulls since this new evaluation run in December. We therefore strongly advise you, our customer, to contact the office for information regarding calving difficulty and the suitability of use for each bull you wish to select, as the figures in some cases do not reflect the bulls performance in each particular trait.

GLOBAL CATTLE GENETICS AT YOUR FARMYARD

This year we purchased an outstanding new Limousin bull Gamin whose semen we have already presold back to a number of French top breeders. We believe him to be our heaviest muscled Limousin bull purchased to date. We also invested in a new Charolais bull to add to the existing stud of proven bulls. Hideal was purchased for his calving ease and milk. His sire and maternal grandsire have calving figures of 107 and 117 respectively. We also offer a new proven red Aberdeen Angus bull Lanigan Red Deep Canyon. Canyon is producing outstanding cattle in John Lanigan’s herd and is a very well muscled powerful Angus. We also expect to have semen from a proven Simmental bull in May Lisnacran Sunnyboy. Details to follow. Bova also succeeded after quite some time to secure a Salers bull Garou from the renowned Roussel herd in France. By the noted Attila, who is breeding very well and out of the Royale cow family, Garou is very well muscled and should suit pedigree and commercial breeders. We also purchased a proven Speckle Park bull Ballylough Warrior. Warrior is very easily calved and is very suitable for crossing on Belgian Blue and Holstein heifers. He also marks his calves ideally. Bova AI are actively in the process of securing new Angus, Charolais, Belgian Blue, Limousin and Simmental bulls for the coming season and we will be updating our website and advertising in due course once these bulls become available.

Please remember that we deliver to all other AI stations Free of Charge

Bova AI would sincerely like to thank our many loyal customers worldwide, who support us and give us the opportunity to improve the quality of their herds through the range of bulls we offer to them. We wish you all the very best for 2013 and look forward to your continued support in our Beef Stud. Owen O’ Neill and Michael O’ Neill are at your disposal to assist you in your breeding objectives.

ROYALTY SCHEME - FOR PEDIGREE REGISTERED CALVES. Please note that some of our beef sires have been placed on the semen royalty scheme with their respective breed societies. This scheme allows us and you to use bulls at very reasonable rates and pay an extra fee when you register your pedigree calves.

GETTING THE BEST RESULTS FROM A.I. • • • • • • • • •

Heat detection rates average about 55%. Improvements are gained by taking more time, i.e. 20 - 30 minutes on each occasion, and by more early morning and late night inspections. Although average heats last 12 - 15 hours, 25 - 30% of cows have heats of less than 6 hours. Prevent cows getting either too fat or too thin. Cows in condition score 2 - 3 (scale 1 - 5) are optimal. Thriving animals always do better. Avoid excessive weight loss around the time of service. Treat lame animals promptly. Breeding cows within 50 days of calving tends to give poor results. Never breed any cow with a dirty vaginal discharge or evidence of ‘whites’. Keep complete records of all cows that come into heat and use them to anticipate returns. Where cows are not coming into heat have your vet examine and treat them. A cow standing firm to be mounted is the best sign of heat, but remember 6 - 8% of pregnant animals will occasionally stand too!

Aubrac

Despagnou was one of 3 out of 100 bulls that were selected to enter AI in France by Midatest. John Walsh, Ballintra, Co Donegal purchased the bull in the test station for use in his own herd. Despagnou should breed stock with good finishing qualities and high grades. He has an outcross pedigree so should be suitable for Irish breeders. Aubrac heifers due to their maternal traits make excellent replacements. Despagnou has been used widely by breeders with excellent satisfaction.
