April Proof : Holstein breed

The April proof round is always a crucial moment in the industry. The baseline change brings a genetic readjustment in the entire population to measure the improvement that has occured during the past year.

This year, the genetic improvement for certain traits ranks as follows : 73 kg Milk, 5.1 kg F ,3.5 kg and 1.04 in conformation. In other words, all indexes have lost 1 point in conformation and they have succeeded in maintaining the same level of performance; (e.g. a sire at +10 becomes +9 even if his daughters are still performing very well).

Holstein Highlights :

Lautrust is back at #1 for LPI, followed by his maternal brother Lineman with a +2 increase in conformation. Also, Bombero makes a significant leap and reaches 2321 Pro$!
