The April 2018 ABV run has seen a consolidation of Genetics Australia’s elite daughter proven sires. Holstein sire MAEBULL leads the way at $309 BPI. MAEBULL was a popular sire in 2017 and we can’t see this changing in 2018. Leading the way in the genomic stakes is SILVERLINE at $352 BPI.
Genomic technology is becoming more and more reliable following each ABV release and has made significant increases in reliability as the technology has evolved during the past five years. Today the most reliable bull’s available are those that combine genomic data with actual Australian daughter performance. The 2017 April ABV just released has highlighted several new high BPI sires backed by daughters with actual Australian performance.
