Visserdale Tron  ET (Tornade x BBB Kellogg) is the new sire returned to service with a very balanced proof. Tron excels for health and fertility traits while showing a more than adequate type proof and improving fat test. On the list of already proven sires, our battery of stars still remains dominant.


Scottière Knock-Out (Sultan x Jade) is the first Sultan son to be returned to service with a strong type proof. He sires daughters that are higher than average for production while improving all functional traits.

Two sires are added to the proof sheet. Hänny Swiss Gordon Wurl ET (Gordon x Starbuck) is the first sire imported from Swissgenetics to get a Canadian proof that meets expectations with very good type. Jolahofs Polo Jongleur ET (Polo x Starbuck) is a new sire imported from Swissgenetics being added to our offer. He is the top mammary system improver available on the market with an index of +18. He also sires tall cows with favorable milking speed, as sought-after by breeders.
