The Q Lor son has impressive health traits offering £166 PLI, +0.1 lifespan and -8 somatic cell count. Quality production is also a key attribute of Lix for farmers wanting to improve components as he transmits a massive +0.32% fat and +0.16% protein.

With solid foundations that boast a long maternal line of high production cows, Lix’s dam is a tremendous animal averaging in four lactations, 7,230kgs milk at 6.34% fat and 4.34% protein. This yield is mirrored in his granddam who in six lactations averaged 7,103kgs milk at 6.21% fat and 4.10% protein.

Cogent is able to offer the most elite and comprehensive Jersey line-up on the market and the addition of Lix boosts its portfolio – providing a bull that combines the true Danish Jerseys’ profitable production and durability.

Cogent’s Jersey Specialist Derrick Frigot comments: “This new sire is destined to become a major influence across Europe.

“His daughters have open-framed, capacious dairy bodies that indicate their ability to be long-lasting and economical cows.

“With strongly-attached, shallow udders and well-placed, ideal-sized teats, this new sire offers breeders a new generation of Danish Jersey breeding with the traditional traits of high components in abundance.”
