SWISS FLECKVIEH Swissgenetics Breeding Value Highlights April 2018
TAURON (Lons x Voltaire x Tiemo) is the first daughter-proven son of LONS and #1 in ISET from all Swiss Fleckvieh bulls. TAURON has the traits expected from a Swiss Fleckvieh cow such as a low somatic cell score, high milk components and a top conformation. Furthermore TAURON is very good for cattle insemination, due to his easy calving, and the wide attachment udders are also impressive.
FORS VO DR LUEG (Orsay x Loyd x Valiant) sires, with ORSAY as his father, a little bit of another father bloodline in the breed Swiss Fleckvieh. FORS VO DR LUEG sires a good milk yield with a lot of protein. A further strength is the conformation with high and wide rear attachment udders along with an optimum teat distribution at the front.
BARBADOS (Ophir x Stadler x Ozean) is the first daughter-proven Ophir son with a high milk production level (+588 kg). The BARBADOS daughters have a high fertility and in conformation they convince with the good rump angle, their wide udder attachment and their muscularity. With his easy calving BARBADOS can easily be used for heifer insemination. The dam and grand-dam of BARBADOS are both still alive and have >90,000 kg lifetime production of milk.
Choosecreek Cocorossa DONALD (Cocorossa x Sokrates x Pickel) is the first Cocorossa son with a positive proof. With high components, low cell counts, he represents the production breeding goal of the Swiss Fleckvieh breed. With a global score of 126 for conformation and 123 for udders, he sires very high attachment udders along with an optimum front teat distribution.
Wildenegg Grock FREESTYLER (Grock x Colenz x Pickel) remains the #2 for ITP (overall conformation) with an index of 123. FREESTYLER's daughters yield well, with good protein components. FREESTYLER also sires positive beef traits.
FRISCO (Puk x Stadel x Kain) is quite clearly one of the best for the breeding value SCS with an index figure of 115. FRISCO also sires extremely high levels of constituents: +0.83% fat and +0.37% protein. With a calving index of 113, FRISCO is well-suited for heifer insemination. FRISCO comes from a very long living family, three generations with more than 10 lactations. His mother Stadel Friola is still alive and has a lifetime production over 90,000 kg milk. FRISCO is available as sexed semen.
ORLANDO (Renato x Loyd x Pickel) sires good milk potential with very high protein components (+0.24%). Attractive traits of his daughters are their impressive conformation, including outstanding feet and legs and perfect udders. ORLANDO promises a long longevity, which is also present in his pedigree. ORLANDO is also very good for cattle insemination, due to his easy calving.
Bellevue Pierolet PANCHO (Pierolet x Hintri x Tulip) stands out due to the high milk yield with high fat and protein contents. Along with his high milk yield, his daughters have outstanding functional traits (particularly chest width and body depth) and wide attachment udders.
More strong daughter-proven Swiss Fleckvieh Bulls in the Swissgenetics lineup are:
New Optimis sires (genomic sires):
Wildenegg SAMU PP (Laptop x Rally x Joyboy) with SAMU PP a young Optimis homozygote polled bull is now available from Swissgenetics. Thanks to his special bloodline he can be used widely. SAMU PP offers a lot of milk potential and sires high and wide attachment udders with a strong median suspensory to his daughters.
JEREMY (Orlando x Incas x Pickel) is a young Optimis bull that has a strong milk yield and protein content. In his conformation he sires a high udder depth with a high attachment udder. JEREMY is now newly available sexed.
