According to Nick Kirby, managing director of, it is Omro’s udder improvement potential - alongside a good overall production and functional trait profile - that should attract a good proportion of dairy farmers.

“Omro is an Oman son out of Aaron, and hence he is so strong on Type and Mammary traits,” he points out. “With +2.1 fore udder attachment, +1.4 udder depth and +0.7 udder support, he does a really good job on udders. Omro is another fine example of German Holstein breeding from GGI and is certainly a bull for anyone looking to incorporate Oman genetics into their future herd, particularly where udder strength is a priority.”

Available in the UK from at a price of £18/dose, Omro has strong all round figures of £162 PLI and 393kg milk and he is a somatic cell count improver with an outstanding value of -22. Omro therefore comfortably sits within’s Minimum Standards recommendations of over £100 PLI, +200kg milk and +1 Type Merit.
