DJ Lix daughter
DJ Lix the No.1 PLI bull is the latest addition to the portfolio. The Q Lor son has impressive health traits offering £201 PLI, +0.1 lifespan and -15 somatic cell count. Quality production is also a key attribute of Lix for farmers wanting to improve components, providing a bull that combines the true Danish Jerseys’ profitable production and durability.
Following closely behind on the PLI leader board is Sunset Canyon Anthems Allstar with £195, who is also the No.1 bull for fat with +32.8kgs.
Tower Vue Prime Tequila, tops the rankings for three traits as the No.1 type (+3.5), udder (+3.2) and legs (+2.4) bull. With an outcross pedigree, his dam is the awesome brood cow Pleasant Nook Sambo Teal, who has bred five Excellent and three VG daughters. Sired by Gil-bar Sparkler Primetime, this top conformation bull is a component improver and progeny have been leading the show circuit in Canada this season.
Top fertility bull, Hollylane Lilibets Legacy leads the fertility tables by a massive four points at +11.7. Next in line at No.2 is yet another Cogent/ UK Jerseys bull, the Danish bred DJ Hagri with +7.7.
