This exciting early Roumare daughter from the Skyhigh Ivory Mandel VG89 family was the result from the purchase of embryos from Jim Morrison’s Inch herd of pedigree Holsteins, Downpatrick.

Christopher stated “my aim is to select, breed and develop great Holstein families for the future improvement of Slieveroe Holsteins. Special individuals like Roumare Ivory are definitely a great foundation!  

Skyhigh Ivory Mandel VG89 is the 10th generation of EX or VG cows and is from the same family as Robthom Integrity EX96. She has three Excellent and 10 Very Good daughters with her first EX91 daughter achieving 14,999kgs at 4.25% butterfat and 3.26% protein.

“Roumare is a fantastic sire and very suited for UK herds, not only can he transmit high production with high fat and protein but also cattle with great legs and  feet and udders.  We have complete confidence in the bull and have flushed our top cows to this international sire of sons” said Jim Morrison, Inch Genetics.

Roumare is available by contacting your local Cogent Breeding Advisor or freephone 0800 783 7258.

C'est magnifique!
