Profitability of WWS Progeny Impresses Farmers at UK Dairy Event

The profitability of the World Wide Sires (WWS) progeny on display at the UK Dairy Event received much admiration from over 600 farmers that attended the WWS stand at the show.

The four progeny on display were sired by the company’s leading bulls that collectively showcase top scores for type, production, health and fitness. Despite travelling over 700 miles between them to the event, the animals looked on top form over the two days making a lasting impression on stand vistors.

England-Ammon Million daughter, Hillhead Million Margot, advocated the high type, production, width and power that her sire delivers in abundance. Calved bang on two-years, as the only milking Million daughter in the UK prior to the event, to be selected as one of the best four WWS animals in the country and to be transported 230 miles from Lockerbie, Scotland, speaks volumes for the Outside son. Million has almost 2,000 registered progeny to date and over the last two months is a top 10 sire for UK registrations.

Regancrest Design sired two of the four progeny daughters, Topcroft Design Daphne VG88 3yr and Harhill Design Rhompus 5 VG88 2yr. First making an appearance on the stand last year as +10,000kg heifers, the medium-sized pair returned to the stage as second lactation three-year olds – evidencing the fertility, staying power and overall strength transmitted Design daughters as they mature. Out of 110 classified progeny, 77% are scored GP or better including 25 VG two-year olds, four VG88-point heifers and one VG89.

Luck-E Goldwyn Autopilot completed the group with daughter, Lovelyhall Pilot Pam. Calved 6 July, this femine, silky skinned, no-holes animal is currently giving 32.6kgs. As an exceptional health trait sire, Autopilot is the highest ranking bull in the WWS UK portfolio for combined fertility (+7.0), low cells (-26) and transmits a voluminous +623kgs milk.

Key Account Manager, Bryan Challenor says: “The four daughters on the stand are real working cows that have had no special treatment and get on with the job themselves. Two of them are from 180-cow sized herds and the others are 130-cow and 60-cow respectively, their breeders tell me that they are a pleasure to work with and enjoy having them through the parlour.”
