Seven new Icon Sires released to market by ABS

ABSABS Global has introduced seven new Icon Sires™ to the market, graduated nine proven sires and held the #1 proven position in NM$ and TPI® with April 2017 graduate 29HO17553 JOSUPER.

This 5-star semen fertility and 4-star TransitionRight® sire tops the industry lists with 998 NM$ and 2806 TPI while continuing to shine with +3442 milk and +98 protein lbs. While the majority of bulls adjusted downward with health and fitness trait changes today, JOSUPER climbed.

JOSUPER has always been a great bull, but today he ascended to the most coveted position,” said Mitch Amundson, Global Dairy Brand Manager. “It’s great to see him continuing to impress our customers. He’s definitely in good company with the new graduates we introduced to the industry.”

Proven sires graduating today include: Holsteins 29HO17740 AMRYN29HO17711 EMPIRE29HO17726 BRODIE29HO17718 TRANSFORMER29HO17619 OLDORO, and Jersey sire 29JE3936 VIPER.

St. Jacobs had a strong showing today with the introduction of 94HO0898 CALIFORNIA-RED and 94HO17739 BLAKE, the top ranked PTAT bull worldwide.

“This sire has 58 scored daughters and went up to +3.77 PTAT,” said Brian Behnke, St. Jacobs Business Manager. “He also boasts positive components and a SCS of 2.71. Breeders have called to express how well they like their daughters even before today and we could not be more excited to add BLAKE to our proven bull lineup.”

“The Icon Sire program is unlike others in the industry as it allows us to introduce our top genetics to customers earlier than ever before,” Amundson continued. “Our top ranked Icon Sire today was 29HO18611 SKYWALKER with 2854 TPI and 992 NM$. Also ranking high was Icon Sire CRIMSON, a SPECTRE son, with 1022 NM$.
