Dear Customer

The August 2012 proof run reaffirmed our progeny testing programme (Visions) as the most successful in the UK with two of our UK-proven bulls in the international top 10 – that’s two more than any other company! However it’s not all about our headline bulls – Ballycairn Tiergan and Cogent Twist – We have many more climbing through the rankings and new graduates launched this autumn, one of which we are certain will set the red and white world alight. We are more conscious than ever of the financial pressures facing UK farmers we have kept costs as

low, discounts for loyalty as high, and payment plans as attractive as we possibly can. We hope this means you can select exactly the bulls you want for your farm as we all know there’s compelling independent evidence to show that it doesn’t pay to compromise on genetics. After all, the cost of good semen for high Profitable Lifetime Index bulls is just a fraction of the return to be gained from breeding the most profitable cows!

“I support the best British young sire programme” Hugh Lennox, Netherholm Farm, Strathaven, Lanarkshire Pictured with Netherholm Twist Grace EX90

“I started using Visions young sires several years ago when my dad wouldn’t let me buy expensive semen. Since then, I have never stopped. Through Visions, we have access to top bulls from the best cow families. We now have the first Cogent Twist daughter in the world to classify Excellent and several others of similar quality. I’m very happy to use Visions young sires across a large proportion of the herd, and now I know all the bulls have genomic indexes which are that bit more reliable, I am even more confident in the system.”

DAUGHTER FERTILITY

“Having viewed several milking progeny, Allemar daughters are consistently medium sized cows with very good udders and superb feet and legs with exceptional locomotion. Dairymen have been impressed with their consistently high production and excellent health traits. Allemar daughters are certainly cows that display excellent longevity.” Peter Ridler | SemenzooDevon


COGENT SUMMER PROOFS 2012 | 04

Product Support Manager Andrew Smith “Cervi Allemar is a Goldwyn son who sires progeny that are ideally suited to large UK herd environments. Allemar daughters are of intermediate stature and display good locomotion with a steep heel and desirable set to the leg. Udder conformation is a trait on Allemar daughters that is consistent with strong fore udder attachments and a well defined central ligament. Allemar is also an easy calving sire and has impressive ratings for daughter fertility, SCC and longevity. With his combination of desirable type and health traits, Allemar will have broad appeal within many herds.� Dtr: Enrica Allemar VG85

“My Asterix daughter is a tight uddered individual which we really like and she held back in-calf first time. She calved at two-year old and will calve her second at three. She is growing and maturing on well and the classifier said she has some of the best legs and feet he had ever seen. As an aggressive eater, she is always one of the first through the gate or into the parlour. She is a character who loves to be handled.” Dennis Smith | 50 cows Devon


COGENT SUMMER PROOFS 2012 | 06

Product Support Manager Andrew Smith “Asterix daughters are very black, stylish, deep bodied heifers with snug, well attached, wide udders. They have outstanding veination, texture and overall quality. They move freely and easily on an excellent set of legs and feet. This bull will breed animals with dairy strength and style. If you are looking for a bull to produce daughters with class then this is the bull for you. He is bred from one of the greatest show winning families in the world and will continue the legacy of this great family.�

“My favourite Azure was the highest producing heifer in the herd and gave 10,467kgs at 3.4%F, 3.2%P, she got back in-calf first time and calved again only 11 months later. She has now calved three times in under three years and is classified EX91. They are very robust, well-balanced cows which carry a little more condition and give a superb yield throughout lactation. Being great in cubicles, they are very easy to manage and are the type of cow you don’t notice.” Jeremy Platt | 500 cows Cheshire


COGENT SUMMER PROOFS 2012 | 08

Product Support Manager Andrew Smith “His daughters are average sized, have the width, depth and power of his sire O-man and would typically suit the large herd environment. They have shapely, very well attached udders that have the ability to produce high volumes of milk. His daughters are clean boned and have great legs and feet, which allows them to be very mobile. With positive lifespan and exceptional daughter fertility, Azure breeds easily managed, care-free profitable cows.”

“Donnie stems from the highest yielding cow ever in the UK, The infamous Castledon Emperor Donfloss 4 EX91 2* who produced a historical 200,000kgs in her lifetime. Her highest lactation was her tenth, when she produced 15,566kgs at 4.63%F 3.41%P in 305 days. Donnie is from five generations of VG & EX cows and his dam Wardle Stormatic Donfloss EX91(2) SP has had unprecedented success in the showring whilst producing outstanding yields and breeding exceptionally well. Donnie daughters are natural milk animals with width throughout and would be a perfect bull to use in commercial dairy operations where farmers want lots of milk from a more robust Type animal.”

“My four milking Goldmine heifers are very good to work with and I am very happy with them. Their temperaments are very good and as they look after themselves well - I hardly notice them.    They have well attached udders with good legs and feet. He stamps them with strength, depth and openness of rib. They are good to manage and I will be using Goldmine again.   I have no complaints with them at all.” Harry Jolly | 125 cows Lancashire


COGENT SUMMER PROOFS 2012 | 16

Product Support Manager Andrew Smith “Goldmine is bred from the Pamela family at Hydaways, going back to Portlea Ned Pamela EX94. It is the strength and depth of this cow family which is transmitting through into Goldmine’s breeding. His daughters are stronger and wider than his sire, Goldwyn, but maintain the style, openness and sweep of rib. His daughters are capable of producing large quantities of milk and getting back in-calf easily. He is a bull which will suit both the pedigree dairy farmer and commercial herd environment. From what I have seen I would summarise the bull as a rare chance to be able to use a Goldwyn son who will transmit strength, production and overall ease of management.”

“I have five Metalics, they are all excellent herd cows, and all of them are an improvement on their dams. They are an ideal size and not too extreme for cubicles. I have had no problems getting them in-calf and I have been very pleased with the quality and quantity of milk they have produced.   My Metalic’s walk on great feet and legs and have ideal teat placement – which is perfect for my robotic parlour.” Brian Harvey | 150 cows Dumfries


COGENT SUMMER PROOFS 2012 | 20

Product Support Manager Andrew Smith “Metalic is a bull who never fails to impress. The daughters are truly outstanding and just keep getting better as they mature. I have seen over 40 Metalics with a large number now in their third lactation and they just keep getting better. They are trouble free cattle that get back in-calf easily. Metalic is a bull that sits amongst the best in the world with both health traits and type. This is obvious when looking at his daughters around the UK. Metalic is a bull that can be used anywhere and will suit all systems. A unique bull offering a different sire stack with outstanding health traits, excellent linears and fantastic overall type.�

As VG heifers they milk well averaging 28kgs/day at 4.67%F, 3.2%P  and 4.5%F, 3.16%P respectively.

Udders are well attached in the fore and high and wide in the rear with near ideal teat position from the rear view. Reflex daughters are a pleasure to work with as they have very placid temperaments.

“BB Toy Missile is a very exciting graduate from the Visions testing programme. I have seen a large selection of daughters across the UK. This outcross bull breeds strong powerful heifers with high wide rear udders. The udders look like they will last a very long time, They are well attached at both the fore and rear, have strong central cleft with excellent teat position. This bull stems from a great cow family - Mark Maui’s and the type of this great family is really being transmitted through. This is one of the most exciting outcross high type bulls on offer in the UK today.”

“I am really pleased with my Talented heifers. They are trouble free cattle that get on with their daily routine. I hardly notice them, which is what we need as we are milking a lot of cows and spare time is very limited. The two daughters calved at 1yr 9, and 1yr 10 respectively, got back in-calf easily, and averaged 84 points on classification. They both have excellent legs and feet, and milk out with ease. Being so impressed, I am now using him again.”

“I am milking three Tiergan heifers, two of which are coming to the end of their first lactation and have milked consistently well throughout. I admire the dairyness combined with the overall strength that the bull has stamped them with. They all excel for dairy strength, with one scoring EX90 in this category. They are clean boned youthful heifers with outstanding veination, quality and texture to their udders. They are a pleasure to work with and have got back in-calf easily.” Hugh Neilson | Overside Holsteins Scotland


COGENT SUMMER PROOFS 2012 | 38

Product Support Manager Andrew Smith “Daughters that I have seen are all balanced with very functional type. They have good chest width with plenty of heart room and open ribbed, deep bodies. Legs and feet are exceptional being very clean in the bone, not too straight and track well with excellent locomotion. Udders are phenomenal - they have very good attachments with a silky texture that is etched in veins. Rear udders are the best thing about Tiergans, being high and wide with a very strong ligament that look sure to stand the test of time. Farmers are delighted that daughters are recording extremely high fat and protein percentages. He is being used as a sire of sons and is the NO.1 UK proven PLI bull. Tiergan’s dam, Ballycairn Garter Tinnie VG87, is an outstanding animal who ranks highly on the UK PLI listings. In her 2nd lactation she produced 13,685kgs milk at 4.86% fat and 3.51% protein.” Dtr: Broomhouse Tiergan Diva 2722 VG88 (2nd lactation picture)

COGENT SUMMER PROOFS 2012 | 40

Product Support Manager Andrew Smith “There is no doubt that with his credentials, Twist screams sire of sons material. His daughters ooze dairy strength, have width and power throughout with wide muzzles allowing them to be aggressive eaters. His stylish daughters have tremendous frames and are long with deep open ribs and clean bone. Udders are held high and wide with strong central ligaments and have outstanding quality, texture and veination, allowing them to have the ability to produce high volumes of quality milk. Being extremely functional cows, they move with ease and have tremendous locomotion. His proof shows good overall type combined with phenomenal production, health and fitness traits - making him a bull not to be missed by today’s forward thinking dairy producers.”

“My Tournament daughters are fantastic cattle to work with as they have excellent temperaments and are trouble free. When I first used Tournament I found that daughters milked so well and were so consistent, I decided to use him again. Now my current group of freshly calved heifers are all by Tournament. We have used him on Holsteins and pure Friesians and he has produced a very consistent group of heifers. They are more suited to our system, having taken the extreme stature out of the Holsteins, leaving me with easy to manage, functional cows.” Mr Brown | 60 Cows Barnoldswick


COGENT SUMMER PROOFS 2012 | 44

Product Support Manager Andrew Smith “The Tournament daughters I have seen are very similar to the bull himself. They are jet black, wide and very powerful. His progeny have got strength and width throughout, carry extra condition and have a large positive for milk on a Friesian base. I have seen daughters from both Holsteins and Friesians and the bull really does stamp them. Farmers have been extremely pleased with their Tournaments, commenting on their consistency and placid temperaments. His daughters have excellent legs and feet combined with high and wide rear udders.�

BEEF ON DAIRY

TRIPLE IMPACT

Exploits the variation in bull maturation rates

Pantone Ref: 356 C

Developed since 2004, Triple Impact, Pantone Ref: 356 C Cogent’s fertility-enhancing semen exploits the variations in bull semen maturation rates. Combining semen of three bulls in one straw ensures the semen is active for longer, thereby extending the time during which a cow’s egg can be fertilised. Each bull we have selected has been chosen for his ease of calving on dairy cows and first-class calf quality. Choose from a combination of three British Blue bulls in a straw, or, a blend of British Blue, Aberdeen Angus and Limousin.
