From a stud already establishing a reputation for top quality
type and production sires comes Jesfa, the latest and most exciting
new release from Bullsemen.com.
German proven Jesfa is a son of leading French sire Jesther CV out
of a VG Basar dam and looks set to become a top sire of sons. Transmitting
close to +900kg milk and +45kg combined fat and protein Jesfa is
among the top bulls available for milk and solids in the UK. Unlike
his sire, Jesfa has also tested free of the recessive CVM gene.
Jesfa has a rock solid linear profile with no weaknesses, as reflected
in his overall Type Merit score of +2.55. According to Nick Kirby,
managing director of Bullsemen.com, Jesfa is the ideal sire for today’s
larger herds looking for average sized cows with plenty of capacity,
correct, wide rumps and more dairy strength. The bull is also very
good on legs and feet and has an udder composite of +2.72, which
is exceptional at this level of milk production. Putting the bull’s
proof into perspective, Jesfa is currently the only bull available
in the UK over 800kg milk that also scores over +2.00 on udders,
feet and legs and overall Type Merit.
The release of Jesfa tops an exceptional proof run for Bullsemen.com,
which currently has five of the top 50 £PLI sires on the books.
These include the No 4 £PLI sire Jardin, high type and component
sires Jurus and Emil II, and the high milk and solids sire GG Addison
Satire. Overall the online active stud averages £52 PLI , -5
SCC , 393 milk , 18 fat , +0.05% fat , 14 kg protein , +0.02% protein
, +1.7TM , +1.1 feet & legs , 1.7 mammary , +1.0 dairy strength
and +0.02 Lifespan.
