The April proof run was mainly one of stability for Cogent sires,
showing the strengths of the UK proving system. However two UK
bred bulls made significant strides in the rankings.
Huddlestone Spooky, a new release in January jumped £12
PLI points to £190 now placing him well inside the UK Top
10. Spooky is an exceptionally complete sire breeding robust
cows with super udders and very good legs and feet, combined
with his easy calving status and ability to significantly reduce
cell counts he is an obvious choice for any producer.
bull on the rise is top Type sire Dalbytop Phil. Phil offers
2.5 Type Merit with exceptional udders +2.2 and fantastic feet
and legs +1.9. However it is for production that Phil is on the
rise, gaining £31 PLI to £164. Phil also offers a
positive fertility index at +1.9 and lifespan of +0.2.
Cogent, UK bred, sires featuring in the top PLI rankings are
Bilsrow Jock who maintains his position at No. 3 with £213
and Cogent Desmond who rises slightly to £201. Both bulls
offer exceptional component improvement and robust type.
