The evolving enhancements with the Holstein genetic formulas often result in sire summary shake ups. The subsequent summaries of International Protein Sires (IPS) resulted in enhanced genetics, however. “As a result of the recent sire proofs, we are excited about our new additions along with elevated genetics of several previously released genomic young sires. The depth of the IPS cow families have contributed to these enhancements,” said Ron Sersland, President, and CEO.
566HO1362 OUTFIT is a member of the Elite Top 200 GTPI sires of the breed at +3083 GTPI. Indicative of leadership, OUTFIT has many attributes. His components are impressive at +102 lbs. (+.25%) fat and +47 lbs. (+.08%) protein. And production increased to +785 lbs. milk. Conformation traits are also excellent at +1.36 type and +2.14 UDC. OUTFIT’s health traits make him a fitness specialist at +1220 DWP$, +1098 NM$, and +6.5 PL. OUTFIT is a rare quality in the Holstein population with an assigned aAa 216. An A2A2 sire with BB Kapp Casein, this breed improver is sired by Outcome from a Pursuit daughter and a cow family with superior components. Through extensive use for embryo transfer, OUTFIT is getting very good results, especially via IVF.
566HO1360 DEDICATED is a new IPS release at +3023 GTPI. Upholding the IPS trademark, DEDICATED is another component specialist at +97 lbs. (+.13%) fat and +64 lbs. (+.06%) protein. This Holstein sire adds further clout with milk improvement at +1,512 lbs. Staying true to IPS fitness qualities, DEDICATED is 1056 DWP$, 1096 NM$, and +5.4 PL. In addition, his 1109 CM$ is a desired bonus. His 1.7% calving ease and A2A2, adds further enhancements. DEDICATED is sired by Wheelhouse and from a Yis daughter. As expected, his cow family is loaded with high milk yield and superior components.
