VikingGenetics bulls are ruling the £PLI lists after August proof run!

VH Brook retains his top spot

VikingHolstein VH Brook is performing really well on the young genomic bulls list. “VH Brook is in fourth position at £849 with excellent milk components (+0.25% fat, +0.11% protein), and as a bull bred in Denmark – where there’s been a long-term emphasis on udder health – it is no surprise to see him rank as the best in the top 20 for both SCC (-37) and mastitis (-6)”, the Board states.
Among young genomic bulls VH Brook also ranked as top 4 on Autumn calving index (£ACI 709) and top 6 on Spring calving index (£SCI 487).
 
VH Brook gNTM +37 is an overall champion, with a production index of 129 with high production of fat and protein. He is also an improver of daughter fertility, udder health and longevity. He breeds cows with an optimal frame.
