Canadian Holstein Highlights – August 2017 – Impressive Invasion of Top 10 Lists for LPI and Pro$


Having three newly proven sires penetrate the Top 10 LPI list represents awesome news from this August release but five newcomers among the Top 10 Pro$ list is simply a colossal invasion! In addition, both lists now have a new leader as Gen-I-Beq Aikman*RDC (Snowman son out of KHW-I Aika Baxter) takes #1 LPI (#26 Pro$, tied #4 Fat) and Seagull-Bay Sargeant-ET (Freddie son out of Ammon-Peachey Shauna-ET by Planet) grabs #1 Pro$ and #1 Milk (#35 LPI, tied #6 Protein). Of the five newly proven sires entering Top 10 Pro$, it is Bacon-Hill Montross-ET (Mogul x Bolton) that takes highest honours at #2 Pro$ (#18 LPI) and is also tied at #3 Protein. Also making a very impressive debut is another Mogul son, Larcrest Commander-ET (dam is Larcrest Calinda-ET by Observer), who takes #4 Pro$ and lands tied at #2 LPI with former breed leader, Comestar Lautrust (#9 Pro$, Sudan x Man-O-Man). Two other newly proven bulls this round achieve Top 10 status for both national indexes, namely De-Su 11228 Topsy-ET (Bookem x Watson, maternal brother to Davinci and full brother of Balisto) at #6 Pro$ and #7 LPI, as well as Gregori One Direction (Epic x Garrett) at #7 Pro$ and #9 LPI. De-Su Mickelson 11598-ET (Supersire x Bookem) also debuts on the Top 10 Pro$ list taking #8 spot and also lands #17 LPI. Among previously proven sires, two manage to stay on the Top 10 list for both LPI and Pro$ this round. Mapel Wood Brewmaster (Garrett x Shottle) takes #4 LPI and #10 Pro$, while staying solid at #1 Fat, and Silverridge Album (Epic x Man-O-Man) now occupies #3 Pro$ and #5 LPI.

Two bulls make significant gains and enter the Top 10 LPI list this round, namely De-Su MG Davinci 11288-ET (maternal brother to Topsy and Balisto) at #6 from #19 LPI (#14 Pro$) and Alta Echelon (Robust x Goldwyn), who catapults from #62 to #8 LPI with an increase of 218 points (#12 Pro$). De-Su Mgl Greenway 11396-ET (Mogul x Planet) slips slightly but lands at #10 LPI (#11 Pro$, tied #6 Protein) and completes this list of elite proven sires. For Pro$, the list of Top 10 is completed by the former breed leader, Mr OCD Epic Dragonheart-ET, who loses ground but stays strong at #5 Pro$ (tied #12 LPI, #7 Milk).

Mogul Reaffirms #1 Ranking Among Sires of Proven Sons by LPI

Now with 28 progeny proven sons in Canada averaging 2897 LPI, Mogul is the highest ranking sire of sons again this round for LPI. Epic follows closely behind for LPI, based on his 35 proven sons, but leads the list for Pro$. Both of these sires continue to produce numerous outstanding newly proven sires this August release along with sons of other well-known sires. In addition to the list of newly proven sires already highlighted, there is a group of six others that penetrate the list of top 25 bulls for LPI or Pro$. The Epic son in this group is Ste Odile Oceanic (dam is the former long-time LPI leading cow Ste Odile Manoman Model Saphir), who debuts at #12 LPI and tied at #5 Conformation with +15 (#48 Pro$). Four of these newcomers are Mogul sons, including EDG Deman-ET at #14 LPI (#107 Pro$), the identical brothers of Delaberge Salt and Delaberge Pepper at #22 LPI (#88 Pro$) and Trustmore Accelerator at #24 LPI and #25 Pro$ (maternal brother to Silverridge Album, dam is Velthuis SG MOM Alicia). EDG Skateboard-ET (Numero Uno x Brigeen Russell) also makes an interesting arrival at #23 Pro$ and #29 LPI.  

Invasion of Elite Genetics Also Hits Top Cow Lists Including a New Queen for Both GLPI and Pro$!

Ri-Val-Re Camaro Nady-ET (Camaro x Numero Uno) makes a grand entrance as the highest newly indexed cow this round with her debut at #1 for both GLPI and Pro$. In fact, both lists of Top 10 GLPI and Pro$ cows experience significant change thanks to the arrival of several outstanding newly indexed cows. For GLPI, Sunnypoint 2026 Lady C (daughter of newly proven Larcrest Commander out of Crasdale Lady Uno) arrives at #2 GLPI (tied #54 Pro$). She is joined by two other newly indexed cows that also penetrate Top 10 GLPI, namely Stantons Pepper Freedah (daughter of newly proven Delaberge Pepper out of Stantons Observer EA Frenzy), who is tied at #6 GLPI (tied #36 Pro$), and OConnors Racer Legendary (Racer x Numero Uno) at #10 GLPI (#23 Pro$). With the great start of Nady and Lady C, the former breed leader, Brabantdale Flame Veracious, is forced into #3 GLPI spot (#10 Pro$) and is followed by Stantons Crimson-ET (Camaro daughter of Larcrest Crayon-ET) who stays firm at #4 GLPI (#6 Pro$). Crimson’s full sister, Stantons Crazy 4 Camaro-ET, is the third cow that maintains her status among Top 10 GLPI cows from last round, now in #8 spot (tied #56 Pro$). Three cows realize gains to enter and complete the Top 10 GLPI list this round, including Progenesis Enforcer Pat-ET (Enforcer x Cameron) at #5 GLPI (from #11, #9 Pro$), Bofran Pepper Fantastique (Pepper x Brewmaster) tied at #6 GLPI (from #54, #25 Pro$, tied #3 Fat) and Boldi V Flame Arcade (Flame x Epic) at #9 GLPI (from #14, #44 Pro$).

For Pro$, five newly indexed cows invade the Top 10 Pro$ list including the four top spots. In addition to the previously mentioned Nady at #1 Pro$, these breed leading stars include Stantons Bee Something-ET (Supershot x Numero Uno) at #2 Pro$ (#44 GLPI), England- Ammon MT Barbara-ET (Montross x Super) at #3 Pro$ (tied #37 GLPI) and Westcoast Montros Amarula 2793 (Montross x Phoenix) at #4 Pro$ (tied #19 GLPI). Beaucoise Commander Palea (Commander x Beacon) also makes an impressive debut as a newly indexed cow this round taking #7 Pro$ (#26 GLPI). Two other cows not previously mentioned are among the Top 10 Pro$ and both maintain this status from last round. These include Gillette Bombero Mango (Bombero x Mogul) at #5 Pro$ (from #9, tied #72 GLPI) and the former Pro$ leader, Stantons Camaro Emulate-ET (Camaro x Numero Uno), who is pushed down into #8 position (#13 GLPI).

Two other newly indexed cows this round achieve outstanding results as Stantons Great M Caption-ET (Capital Gain x Epic) becomes the new #1 for Milk at 3368 kg and Sunnypoint 2024
Lady D (maternal sister to Lady C at #2 GLPI) takes #1 Conformation at +19.

Among polled cows, Dudoc McCutchen Rancune P*POC (McCutchen x Magna*POC*RDC) ranks highest for GLPI at #16 while Boldi V Over All P*POC (Overtime*POC x Epic) is the highest for Pro$ at #100. For red enthusiasts, Showbiz Brewmaster Swan*RDC remains the highest ranking red carrier cow at #23 GLPI and #53 Pro$ while Lesperron Aikman Sofie Red*RW is the highest ranking red cow at #28 GLPI and tied at #73 Pro$.
