Dovea Genetics Performs Well on IHFA Recommended Bull Breeding List (Spring 2022)
Dovea Genetics feature three out of the top five sires on the IHFA High Constituent Milk List.
High Constituent Milk List
Dovea Genetics feature three out of the top five sires on the IHFA High Constituent Milk List. Saint Brigid Frank Joseph (FR5860) tops the chart for the first time. His proven sire stack is matched by a 4 % protein maternal line with potential five generations of VG or EX.
The immensely popular Gortcreen Van Dyke (FR6475) honourably features in second place. The component specialist transmits a superb + 0.33% Fat with +0.18% Protein. Van Dyke is bred from a GP83 2-year-old, Gortcreen Lucy 2385
Finally, the milk kg leader (+432 kgs.) Hillsdale Mo-Salah (FR5704) is No.5 on the list bringing a combined total of 41kg milk solids and +0.12% protein. Mo Salah is from the Hillsdale Lass line with two generations EX in a row.
Production & Conformation List
Again, Gorctreen Van Dyke (FR6475) features No.1 on the Production and Conformation List combining Genetic Index, Components and Conformation. Van Dyke himself transmits a positive mammary, wide chest and rump width correct angle. Ranked one & two on both lists this is a unique sire that meets pedigree breeders production & conformation needs.
Congratulations to Anthony Flavin (Ballintossig Herd) who featured in the Focus Article. The article highlights two of Anthony’s strongest maternal bloodlines in the Amber and Annie family. The Amber line, specialising in protein components has been especially interesting for Dovea Genetics breeding the very prominent protein specialists Ballintosig Mister Man (FR7749) who is one of our top sellers for the 2022 breeding season and Ballintosig Real Mc Coy (FR4724)
