The young genomic tested InSire bulls of today are the proven bulls of tomorrow. The bulls Sunrise, Hollandia and Pilot, who have made a successful transfer in this index run from the lists of genomic tested bulls to the list of proven bulls, are the best examples of this.
All eyes are on him during this index run. De Biesheuvel Sunrise (+197 NVI, Jardin x O-Man). The bull from the highest index cow in the Netherlands. The bull that, as an InSire bull, was uniquely popular. And that bull is now fulfilling the great expectations placed on him. He is coming through as the highest new CRV proven bull and winning 12 points NVI compared to his previous genomic breeding value. Sunrise gives a high milk yield (+1384 kg) with a great deal of protein (+0.14%, 61 kg), resulting in an incredibly high Inet score (+332). He completes his ideal image with beautiful conformation (109 total conformation) and good management traits (105 calving ease, 103 character). And Sunrise also proves his qualities in the male line. His son Diepenhoek Rozello (+257 NVI, ms. Shottle) enters the list of bulls with a genomic breeding value in the top 20. He transfers an outstanding conformation (114 total conformation) and a great deal of milk (+1417 kg).
De Biesheuvel Sunrise Daughter
Top quality sons from established fathers
As well as young bulls like Sunrise, established names are also delivering impressive new
breeding bulls. Paramount, who has produced over 26,000 daughters in his breeding value, is the sire of Newhouse Hollandia (+167 NVI, ms. Lucky Mike). This bull comes from the famous Sneeker Family. His most significant qualities are his strong conformation (112 total conformation with 113 udder) and fantastic production (+790 kg milk). Highly reliable Fortune is the sire of Peeldijker Phantasy (+159 NVI), who maintained his index in the second run. Phantasy yields very strong features: high production (+1162 kg, +0.04% protein), powerful conformation (108 frame, 107 dairy strength, 110 udder, 110 total conformation) and udder health (106). Slotbooms Pilot (+186 NVI, ms. Jocko) is a son of Mascol. After Sunrise, he is the highest new proven bull from CRV. Pilot produces heifers with excellent udders (109) and good udder health (105). He is free of O-Man genes and therefore widely usable.
Hollandia Jessica 63
Canvas has delivered Delta Scarlet for this index (+161 NVI). Scarlet is, just like his sire, a top milk bull (+2551 kg). He has a very high Inet (382 Euro) and his daughters constantly achieve top production (103 dairy strength, 344 days longevity). In terms of health traits, he outpaces his sire (105 hoof health).
Aurora Ormsby (+205 NVI) has gone up the classification ranks and reached the top 15. He is the highest placed son of Shottle in the Netherlands and one of the most highly available sons of Shottle worldwide. Ormsby is an all-rounder with +791 kg milk, 585 days longevity, 111 total conformation and 102 fertility.

Outcross bulls from the Delta programme
Outcross blood combined with lifetime production is what bulls Delta Persuader and Delta Malaga have to offer. Delta Persuader (+223 NVI, ms. Dustin) comes from the Delta Chrissy family that forms a strong breeding group at the CRV test stations. Persuader stands out due to balanced production (+641 kg milk, -0.25% fat, +0.04% protein), enormous dairy strength (108), really strong legs (111) and good udder health (108). Outcross blood (Jordan x Jocko), lots of milk (+1535 kg) and a high longevity (+685 days) are the features of Delta Malaga (+204 NVI) in a nutshell. This bull comes from the same family as Delta G-Force and is also perfectly suited for correcting too flat rump angles (114 rump angle).
Top sire Cricket
The breeding value calculations that include Inet and NVI have been amended in order to breed cows that will suit the future system without milk quota in Europe. Today’s choice of bull determines which heifers farmers will be milking in 2015. And masses of farmers are opting for Ralma O-Man cf Cricket (O-Man x Durham) The amended calculations have raised this health specialist (111 udder health, 106 fertility, 109 calving ease) to the position he deserves, at the top of the class. The breeding power of Cricket is clearly demonstrated in the genomics list. Both the number 1 and the number 3 on this list are sons of Cricket.
InSire for lifetime production
Another interesting bull on the list of bulls without daughters is Elagaaster Packman (+247 NVI, Bogart x Jordan), the bull for the modern dairy farmer. He will produce daughters who effortlessly reach old age thanks to fabulous breeding values for udder health (105), fertility (104) and an incredible longevity (+602 days). As well as this, he ensures good production (+765 kg milk) with positive contents (+0.10% fat, +0.14% protein). Delta Alanso (+269 NVI, ms. Shottle) is a newcomer to the list. Alonso is a son of Atlantic, who is still also an InSire bull. An ideal production inheritance (+739 kg, 0.12% protein), good longevity (608 days), good fertility (103) and super conformation (111), Alonso has it all.
Red-and-white InSires deliver total package
When it comes to the red-and-white genomic bulls, CRV also has many bulls with this total package of features. Son of Jerudo, Delta Maicon (+225 NVI) transfers 476 days longevity, a high protein percentage (+0.15), and excellent conformation (111 total conformation). He is therefore the ideal foundation for many breeding goals. The same applies to Ammervelde Design (+200 NVI). Design is a son of Destry (s. Goldwyn) from a daughter of Lightning. His inheritance pattern with absolute top conformation (111) and highifetime production (427 days longevity, 745 kg milk) speaks for itself. Polled and top quality go hand in hand for Veneriete 396 Twist P (+192 NVI, Mitey P x Twister). He contributes to increasing lifetime production with high production (+987 kg), high longevity (+498) and good health traits (103 udder health).
Kodak new number 1
Topspeed Kodak (+216 NVI) is scaling the ranks to the number 1 position. Son of Kevin, Kodak, is also the number 1 in terms of longevity (+750 days). He also has fantastic health traits (108 hoof health, 104 udder health), and passes on very decent production (+550 kg milk, +0.03% protein) as well as being perfectly suited as a maiden heifer bull (111 calving ease). A remarkable new addition to the top 10 list is a son of Royalist, Maniac van de Peul (+177 NVI). His high classification is due to extremely good udder (110) and leg inheritance (114), high longevity (+437 days) and good udder health (106).
AI Kampen’s Talentino (+169 NVI) has had a good index run. With his high protein yield (+0.17%) and all-round strong conformation with 110 legs and 110 udder, he is also going up within his class.
A new name in the red-and-white breeding bull list is Lowlands Standard (+155 NVI, ms.Gogo). This son of Jasper produces daughters with a high milk urge (+2295 kg) and strong conformation (108 total conformation).
