Holstein Sire Summary

New Proven Sires for April 2018

Proven Highlights

  • Brothers Comestar LAUTRUST and LINEMAN occupy the top two LPI positions separated by a mere point. They are the breed’s only proven sires above 3200 LPI with Double Digit Type. Their maternal sister Comestar Lamadona Doorman EX-94-4YR-CAN was HM. All-Canadian and Res. All-American Jr-3yr-old in 2016. The Laurie Sheik family can do it all!
  • Doorman’s Red Carrier brother Blondin INTEGRAL graduates with flying colours
  • Walnutlawn SOLOMON and Croteau Lesperron UNIX are # 1 and 2 in Canada for Type
  • RH SUPERMAN is super man, with 190 kgs Combined Fat & Protein and +12 Chest Width


EX-91-6YR-CAN 8*


3161 LPI 1955 PRO$ 13 CONF


Sympatico x Shottle

It’s never easy to be the other brother of a #1 daughter proven LPI sire but Blondin Integral and Comestar Lineman both show it can be done with success. By the time Integral started his AI career, his brother Doorman was already siring All-Canadians and was a year away from capturing the LPI crown. Integral’s proven debut at #13 position for LPI is a little less illustrious perhaps, however his claim of exceeding Doorman for both LPI and Pro$ is not too shabby. With double digit ratings for both Udders and Feet and Legs, Integral stamps a nice Type pattern in his leggy, stretchy and stylish offspring. While he is a moderate milk bull, he sires extreme fat deviations and does a very nice job of lowering Somatic Cell Score. Integral is a Red carrier and a Calving Ease sire.

Superman Daughter Group


3160 LPI 2553 PRO$ 5 CONF


Supersire x Man O Man

Tracing through four generations of breeding back to Windy-Knoll-View Promise, it is amazing how a great Type family can also become a great production family. Superman combining nearly 200 kg of Fat and protein with over 2000 kg of Milk is an elite production sire. Type numbers are moderate, but he does especially well on key udder traits and for moderate-sized cows his +12 rating for Chest Width really does make one think of Superman! These are strong cows that hold their body condition despite these extraordinary production numbers. If you have a production emergency, call on Superman to save the day.

VG-87-2YR-CAN 2*

Lindenwright MEGAWATT HCD

3155 LPI 1996 PRO$ 12 CONF


Enforcer x Bradnick

A few years ago the market accepted with some excitement the bull Lindenright Megawatt. He was easily our most popular Genomax sire for several proof rounds due to his interesting pedigree and balanced genetic profile. The discovery of the Cholesterol Deficiency Haplotype and that Megawatt was a carrier ultimately lead to a break in his marketing, however, his early milking daughters prove the genomic predictions are for real. Megawatt sires moderate production numbers combined with an excellent Type profile, especially for Feet and Legs. He also sires a nice Health trait profile with strong Herd Life and Daughter Fertility ratings. Megawatt is a Calving Ease sire. As balanced as ever, this is an easy bull to include in your breeding program on pedigrees Optimate confirms to have low probability of HCD presence.


VG-89-5YR-CAN  20*


2911M LPI 1771 PRO$ 10M CONF


Sympatico x Baxter

It’s always nice to have a well-balanced Proven Red sire in our lineup and Attico-Red fits that bill. Although he just barely misses having 20 daughters past 120 days in Milk to achieve a Canadian-only production evaluation, his 225-daughter MACE evaluation is made up in equal parts of Canadian and US daughters providing a 91% Production reliability rating. Attico-Red delivers a nice shot of milk for red enthusiasts, with over 1000 kg Milk and strong fat and protein deviations. His double-digit Type rating is built on a balanced profile, matching well on many red bloodlines, lengthening teats and lowering pins. Attico-Red, like his sire, scores well for Calving Ability.

Solomon Daughter Group

Walnutlawn SOLOMON

2910 LPI 1383 PRO$  16 CONF


Doorman x Lavanguard

The Popular Genomax Bull Walnutlawn Solomon has his first official daughter proof and he is making a real splash.  Solomon makes his way to the proven sire side of the sheet solely holding the number one Conformation spot at +16, combined with ratings of +14 for Mammary, +12 for Feet and Legs, +12 for Dairy Strength and +10 for Rump.  This complete double-digit type break-down makes Solomon one of the very few available bulls who can make that boast.  Solomon is currently running at 94% Good Plus and Better on daughter classification with over 25% of his 2-yr-old daughters achieving a VG score.  Solomon is an A2A2 sire as well as a showtime sire with a +.25% fat deviation.  Look to Solomon to lower pins widen rumps while correcting foot angle and adding depth of heel.  Solomon daughters are remarked on for their very strong fore udders with silky texture.  He delivers on his promise – look to Solomon to add some flash to your breeding program.

Claynook Tonka

Claynook TONKA

2807 LPI 2429 PRO$ 13 CONF


Doorman x Windbrook x Goldwyn

One might fixate only on the dream sire stack but Tonka hails from an exceptionally well-bred maternal pedigree too with true cow family credentials: 7 VG or EX dams that combine for a total of 42*.  Tonka delivers solid Milk and a very enticing Type break down with +13 for Type +11 for Mammary +14 for Dairy Strength and +7 for Rump.  He sires a pleasing SCS rating of 2.79 combined with 105 for Milking Temperament and an-against-the-odds 99 for Milking Speed.  Look to Tonka to make angular cows with very well attached udders while strengthening loins and widening pins.
