We are happy to announce the launch of our new website.
We are often asked if daughter proven bulls are superior to genomic proven ones.
We looked at a situation in which we selected only the highest EBI bulls in each year that were either Genomic (GS), Daughter Proven with Irish daughter (DAU Irl) or Daughter proven with foreign daughters (INT dau). We looked at the top 15 bulls in each category, regardless of breed since 2010 and compared the EBI at the time of selection to the current EBI.
Leading the trade was the Reserve Senior Champion “Roundhill Hot Shot” (pictured below) from the herd of Tim Corridan, Fedamore, Co. Limerick. This very stylish September 2012 born bull is a son of Dollar
Our recent series of meetings in Sligo, Mayo and Roscommon in conjunction with Teagasc and Aurivo we well attended and well received. The discussion centered on the future milk market and producing milk solids to meet this, the science of the EBI and its effect on real cow performance.Thanks to all who attended.
Cattle Breeding is about maximizing genetic gain for the selected traits. Also when crossbreeding hybrid vigor is a bonus. So how do we make best use of both?
How to Ensure cows are at least 40 days calved and in good condition?
