Diamond Sires are ‘Rock Solid’ bulls with over 1,000 milking daughters. Therefore recognising sires with outstanding Second Crop success and ensuring genetic accuracy.

Rock Solid Genetics highlights sires with over 100 daughters in 60 herds. Providing stable Type and Production proofs over time. Use Rock Solid Genetics to identify the most reliable sires from Genus ABS. Identifies sires within the Genus ABS stud with the easiest Calving Ease ratings, based on hundreds of observations. Calving Ease sires enable cows to get off to the best possible start after calving. Based on over one million services a year, Genus ABS are unique in being able to identify fertility ratings of our stud. The bulls with the highest Semen Fertility are identified with this symbol. Identifies those bulls that score well on the traits that are desirable on a grassland system, locomotion, fertility and body condition score. Identifies those sires who’s daughters show improved daughter fertility. Use these sires to maximise the reproductive potential of your herd. Where high quality milk is a priority. High component sires have been marked with the Cheese Maker symbol.

Identifies our most potent Type improvers. Use these sires with confidence to breed high Type long life cows.

Sires specially selected for robotic milking systems. Cows are bred to have a little extra teat length and for teats to be placed centrally at the bottom of quarters for ease of milking. To highlight those sires who have a proof based on UK milking daughters.

Genus ABS abide by the DairyCo and Holstein UK established Code of Advertising.

HOLSTEIN

Somatic Cell Count An important trait for breeding cows with mastitis resistance for future generations. The range for sires marketed in the UK is effectively +30% (poor) to -30% (good).

PTA2013 (Predicted Transmitting Ability)

Direct calving ease predicts the ease with which a calf by that sire will be born. Maternal calving ease predicts the ease with which a daughter of that sire will give birth to her own calf.

The PTA is the predicted level of production, above or below the base, which the animal is capable of passing on to its offspring.

Daughter: Maenllwyd Bossman Empress EX91, third lacation

A measure of female fertility. The average of all marketed bulls is 0. Each point increase in fertility is worth half a day in calving interval. The majority of bulls would fall between (poor)-15 to +15(good).

Lifespan A direct measure of how long cows are lasting in the herd. Each decimal point reflects an extra month of herd life.

Linear Assessment

Production daughters in herds

Linear measures the difference in biological extremes in different traits, without saying which is the most desirable score. The mid point (0) represents the breed average for the population.

At Genus ABS our aim is to achieve 100 daughters in 60 herds early in a bulls life (Rock Solid Status). This spread of milking daughters gives us the confidence that a bulls proof will accurately reflect the results seen on farm, and not change significantly over time.

PLI2013 Helps farmers select the correct balance of longevity fertility, somatic cell count and production improvement (PIN). Recent research shows that for every £1 increase in a cows PLI, a £4.21 increase in margin results.

Genus ABS abide by the DairyCo and Holstein UK established Code of Advertising.
