Manders Upside (Fragrant x Ranger), number six in the NVI publication, also has a breeding value of 112 for feed efficiency. He scores +20% CRV Efficiency. With 107 udder, 108 feet and legs and 108 total conformation, he is also an excellent type improver. Upside is available through the Create programme, CRV's early-release semen programme.
Borax, number two in Germany and Spain
Former Create bull Delta Borax (Freestyle x Jakarta) is now freely available and kept up its numbers very well with a production proof of +1,295 kg milk with +0.46% fat and +0.12% protein, along with a high longevity of 639 days and 108 feed efficiency. He transmits good all-around health traits (resulting in +7% CRV Health), and 109 udder and 107 total conformation. Thanks to his all-around breeding pattern, this bull is attracting plenty of international interest. With 160 RZG, he ranks at second place in the German ranking of genomic bulls. Borax also ranks second in the Spanish ICO total merit index.
The breeding values of Delta Jacuzzi (Livington x Incentive) are now based on more than 3,000 daughters. They provide their sire with a breeding value of more than 1,000 kg milk with very high components: +0.77% fat and +0.15% protein. Jacuzzi’s daughters have firmly attached, shallow udders, and strong feet and legs. With +13% CRV Efficiency and 107 feed efficiency, this daughter-proven bull also guarantees daughters that convert feed into milk very efficiently. Jacuzzi continues to do well in Germany. He scores 139 RZG and is in the top 10 ranking of daughter-proven bulls.
Efficiency leaders from the TPI programme
Peak Lukaku (Eldorado x Rubicon) now has 2,320 daughters that are milking in 351 herds. They provide their sire with a production proof, on USA basis, of 1,204 Lbs of milk with +0.13% fat and +0.01% protein. Lukaku now scores 847 NM$ and 2,782 TPI. Lukaku’s daughters are easy-to-manage cows, with good udders and feet and legs. He scores +16% CRV Efficiency, so he can be expected to sire highly productive and efficient cows.
New addition Peak Mecanico (AltaKevlow x AltaZazzle) is the highest bull available in CRV’s lineup, with 3,105 gTPI and 1,205 NM$. His USA genomic proofs are almost 800 Lbs of milk with high components: +0.29% fat and +0.12% protein. Mecanico’s daughters will also convert feed very efficiently into milk, fat and protein. He scores +22% CRV Efficiency. In addition, this young bull transmits very solid, well-shaped udders and excellent udder health. Mecanico also scores very well for daughter pregnancy rate; +1.2.
Kings-Ransom Dazzlin (Pine-Tree Engineer x Pine-Tree Lagacy) is a bull that resulted from CRV's Create programme. His USA genomic proofs predict solid conformation and high components: +0.37% fat and +0.13% protein. Dazzlin also scores high on health traits such as somatic cell score (2.69 SCS), and he increases longevity (+6.5 PL). Dazzlin hails from a deep cow family from the Kings-Ransom breeding herd. Other CRV bulls from this successful family include Dynorama, Defiant, Gallivant and Donkeykong.
