BSG Fleckvieh progeny tested

FV ZWS April2022_engl.jpg

The first breeding value estimation of the year enriches the line-up of the A.I. center Greifenberg with numerous new names. progeny-tested, naturally polled and young genomic Fleckvieh sires provide a firework of new lines and outstanding breeding patterns.

In order to meet the steady increase in polled inseminations in the Fleckvieh breed, which recently accounted for half of all inseminations, the BSG range now includes 13 top-class polled bulls that can meet all requirements.

Guaranteed "topless"

Whether longevity, show ring or breeding events, his cow family always gets involved, and with Maybach PP* they now produce the most complete progeny-tested purebred polled Fleckvieh sires. Also in the breeding values of Maybach PP* the hereditary power of the cow family is clearly visible. Medium-framed, well-muscled cows with a long middle hand and correct feet&legs are his programme. With a good performance (+594kg milk) and low contents, Maybach PP* convinces with best fertility (112) and longevity (112). The excellent calf quality is already known since the young sires and manifests itself in a beef performance of strong 121 points. The small-volume udders of the Maybach PP*-daughters are high and tightly attached, with somewhat further out placed but correctly positioned strokes.

The top newcomer progeny-tested is Elsando (Etossha x Reumut, TMI131) from the well-known H-cow family of the Freigassner farm. He is a half brother to the well-known Wattking. With almost +900kg milk at a low fat content, Elsando's strengths are mainly in the fitness area, with excellent udder health (126), daughter fertility (119) and service life (120). In Elsando's balanced conformation, the firmly attached udders with optimal teat formation are especially striking. The perfect bull for robotic milking! ⇒ Sire Proofs ELSANDO

Another strong Etoscha-son is Elstar, who promises a balanced performance heredity (+818kg -0.15% -0.07%) as well as good mating traits (FW 114). He also combines good milkability (107) with strong udder health (118). Although Elstar inherits a lot of body, the easy calving pattern (116) recommends him for mating to cattle. Also in conformation Elstar, bred out of the full sister of Wervoll, impresses with correct foundations (116) and firmly attached udders with top line position and placement. ⇒Sire Proofs ELSTAR

 

Viadukt (Villeroy x Manton) is currently number 2 of the progeny-tested Villeroy-sons according to TMI, according to Milk-index even number 1. With a performance heredity of +773kg Viadukt promises a quick milkability (120) with nevertheless decent udder health (104). With Beef performance 109 and medium-framed, well-muscled daughters, his breeding pattern is marked by the dual-purpose character of the Fleckvieh breed.

 

 

 

 

MANOLO Pp* the favourite of Fleckvieh polled

MANOLO Pp is nationally and internationally popular as the best progeny tested polled Fleckvieh sire. He can further underpin his position as an exceptional polled sire of the Fleckvieh breed. With now 650 classified daughters he continues to set standards in conformation with the combination frame (117) muscling (111) feet&legs (136) and udder (112). The uncomplicated Manolo Pp daughters are convincing in daily handling on the farms. Also in the fitness traits his highlights are in the areas of longevity (121), udder health (119) as well as the very easy calvings (114) and the vital calves. Solely milking speed has to be considered Sire proofs of Fleckvieh ⇒ MANOLO Pp...

BSG genomic Fleckvieh - variety

Homozygous polled Fleckvieh bulls - New addition to the list MAVERICK PP

New, however to the list of the homozygous polled Fleckvieh sires, is the Mercedes Pp*-son Maverick PP*, who shines with a very complete heredity pattern. Especially the combination of positive ingredients (+0.08% fat, +0.06% protein), above-average calving performance and robot-suitable conformation should be interesting for many farms. Sire Proofs Maverick PP*

Heartbeat P*S x Vollgas P*S x Manton is the sire line of the homozygous polled young Fleckvieh bull Heartland PP*. Due to the genomic profile, we can expect creamy daughters with an excellent udder quality. Especially in udder length and udder floor Heartland PP* is convincing. The positive compoenents +0,02%fat and +0,05% protein as well as the desired A2A2 inheritance in connection with the polled gene make Heartland PP* a sought-after mating bull. The appealing calving pattern also makes a mating to heifers possible. Breeding values Heartland PP*

An extraordinary sire line with Mai P*S x Walch x Scorpion Pp* x Witam P*S can be found in the pedigree of MERCADO PP*. Mercado PP* can be used in a wide range of lines and can improve milk yield and conformation in hornless breeding. He lets us expect daughters with a good frame and an excellent foundation. The udders will inspire especially in length, udder floor and the strong central band. Mercado PP* also leaves nothing to be desired in terms of line expression and placement. Breeding values MERCADO PP*

Both bulls embody the ideal dual purpose type with top beef values and their great type! Heartland PP and Mercado PP will are both available with sexed semen.

VOTANGO PP* (Votary P*S x Mahango Pp*) completes the high quality range of purebred polled bulls. The heifer bull (Cpat114) confirmed his values and can further convince with appealing milk quantity and functional conformation.

Heterozygous polled Fleckvieh sires

With almost 4,000 calved daughters, Manolo Pp* continues to confirm his exceptional position among the heterozygous polled bulls. Still number 3 in this segment, no one can match him in terms of udder health (119), calving ease (114) and conformation (foundation 133, udder 112). With numerous sons and grandsons in insemination, it is certain that Manolo Pp* is shaping the polled breeding programme and is now even happy about offspring in Peru.

In the field of genomic young Fleckvieh sires Edelpilz P*S and Meran Pp* complete the strong line-up of Mercedes Pp* sons. Edelpilz P*S is a very balanced sire with high performance (+870kg), positive protein (+0,08%) and a complete fitness block. Especially the teat development and the correct feet&legs stand out in conformation.

A naturally hornless son of Manaus is Meran Pp*, who, like his sire, can be expected to have a high dual-purpose character in his offspring.

Whether Wintertraum, Sputnik, Hoeri, Myanmar or Endless, they all have one thing in common besides strong genomics: With their alternative bloodlines they are extremely versatile.

With a GZW of 145, the Spartacus son Sputnik (Spartacus x Varta x Rucksi) is in high demand and accordingly limited in availability. His Varta dam is one of the cows with the highest breeding values in Austria and convinces the herd with her high performance and excellent udder. It is no coincidence that his udder breeding value is 127.

With the combination Mydarling x Gucci x Massimiliano x Humpert Myanmar is bred very special and still promises a very high performance disposition (+1434kg). With FW 117 and +1245kg milk Endless (Enrico x Wobbler) also lives up to the claim of dual-purpose suitability, furthermore he convinces with small-volume, high hanging udders with optimal line formation.

Udder quality of the extra class (udder 138) promises the young Mercedes-son MERTEN. On the dam's side we find with Wikinger, Raldi and Hutera further top-class Fleckvieh bulls. His dam shows an enormous willingness to perform and can already convince with a 200 day performance of 6,447 kg milk with 4.09% fat and outstanding 3.89% protein. High protein levels are deeply anchored in this cow family and Merten also shows a clear improvement (+0.11% protein). High attached, tight udders with ideal central ligaments as well as his excellent fitness values (FIT 133) complete his outstanding breeding pattern. Breeding values type specialist MERTEN

 

Your farms and your health are very important for us, thats`s why the events planned for August, such as the Fleckvieh and Brown Swiss regulars bull presentation, will be cancelled. As we still want to provide you with the best possible information about current events in cattle breeding, we would like to take this opportunity to refer you to our new homepage, which has been equipped with many practical functions such as the search for bulls suitable for AMS. On www.besamungsstation.eu you will find under the menu item "News" current topics around cattle breeding.

 

Make use of the genetics potential of our high-quality, broad range of Fleckvieh genetics!

Further bulls are available on our website www.besamungsstation.eu

Since we have always a selection of bulls for our regional farmers after the sire proof run the list ist reduced. The additional list of the BSG bull can be found here:"Fleckvieh Archive"
