Interestingly, 7 of our top sires on the active bull list are sired by 7 different sires. This is not surprising as the number of sons brought into the young bull programme again this year is limited to 5 sons per sire.
Top component sires at Dovea Genetics are Ardallen Fergus FR6472, Ballintossig Misterman FR7749, Toureen Tauirin (F6520), Glenaboy Special One FR7767. These sires are bred from 4% protein dams and together average +0.31% Fat +0.21% Protein and 31.5 Kg increase of milk solids. The heritability of protein components is one of the highest of all the genetic traits of an animal.
