Friesian herds that are looking for a strong bull that is very good on Type will be very impressed with Kirkby Jayson.

The Rocket 3 X Sharcombe Beta son featured strongly in the December DairyCo Breeding+ Friesian Bull Proofs. His scores were based on the results of 135 Proof Daughters from 76 herds.

Kirkby Jayson was second on the all-important Legs and Feet list with a score of +2.26. This and a very good +1.40 Mammary score meant he delivered a Type Merit score of +1.76.

“Kirkby Jayson shows that is not just committed to offering the best Holstein bulls to producers, but also leading Friesian bulls too,” says Nick Kirby, managing director of, whose Holstein bulls occupied 32 of the top 100 places in the December Holstein Proof.

“He is a great option for Friesian dairy farmers looking to improve the health and strength of their herds. Feet and legs are especially important for all indoor and outdoor dairy herds and this is where this bull’s strength really lies.”

Other highlights include a Lifespan score of +0.3, while an easy calving rating and a calm temperament make for easy management of his daughters. He has a very good SCC score of -4%, with a +290kg milk rating.

“Kirkby Jayson is one of 14 bulls in the Winter Sale,” says Mr Kirby.

“With his strong all round combination of traits and priced at only £9.50 in our Winter Sale, Kirkby Jayson is possibly the best value Friesian available.”
