Canadian Holstein Highlights – December 2015 – Brewmaster Still Leads with Pressure from Impressive Newcomers!


Securing the #1 position for LPI and Pro$ for the second round in a row is Mapel Wood Brewmaster (Garrett x Shottle) with the exact same LPI of 3199 and a Pro$ change of only $67. Brewmaster also maintains his dominance as the #1 bull in the breed for Fat while the breed welcomes several impressive newly proven sires. Ranking #4 for both national indexes, and highest newcomer, is Chartroise Smurf (#9 Milk, tied #9 Protein), who is among the first group of Snowman sons proven in Canada and out of Chartroise- I Planet Safron. A second newly proven sire that penetrates the Top 10 list for both LPI (tied #7) and Pro$ (#8) is Roylane Boxer Punch 4311-ET, who is a Boxer son out of the prolific Seagull-Bay OMan Mirror-ET and is therefore a maternal brother to Roylane Socra Robust-ET. Five other sires rank among the Top 10 for both LPI and Pro$. These include the full brother Freddie sons out of the well-known Ammon-Peachy Shauna-ET, namely Seagull-Bay Shaw-ET (#2 Pro$, #9 LPI, #1 Milk, #1 Protein) and Seagull-Bay Sargeant-ET (#3 Pro$, #10 LPI, #5 Milk). After adding over 130 daughters to his production proof and 120 classified daughters, Minnigan-Hills Day-ET (Super x Bolton) takes a significant jump up for both LPI and Pro$, now ranking #5 (from #27) and #10 (from #30), respectively. OCD Stargazer-ET (Super x Elegant, #6 LPI, #6 Pro$, #4 Milk) and Rosylane-LLC AltaLeo-ET (AltaMeteor x Nifty, tied #7 LPI, #9 Pro$) complete the list bulls ranking in the Top 10 for both national indexes.

Two sires that excel for LPI this round are De-Su McCutchen 1174-ET (Bookem son out of Sully Shottle May-TW) in #2 position (#19 Pro$), and Amighetti Numero Uno ET at #3 LPI (Man-O-Man x Shottle, #11 Pro$). From the other perspective, two sires perform stronger for Pro$ than LPI, including Cangen Pinkman at #4 Pro$ (Super x Baxter, #11 LPI) and the highly anticipated newly proven sire Seagull-Bay Supersire-ET at #7 Pro$ (#21 LPI, tied #6 Protein, #9 Fat), who is a Robust son and maternal brother to Shaw and Sargeant. Among the breed leaders in August, Mountfield SSI Dcy Mogul-ET loses ground and slips from #3 for both LPI and Pro$ to land in #20 and #16 spot this round, respectively.

Other newly proven bulls this round that reach Top 25 status for LPI or Pro$ include Sandy-Valley Saloon-ET at #12 LPI (AltaIota x Planet, #23 Pro$, #3 Protein), De-Su AltaLaker-ET at #13 LPI and #13 Pro$ (Bowser x Planet), Willem’s Hoeve W-H Rup at #12 Pro$ (Super x Goldwyn, #34 LPI), Wargo-Acres Merritte-ET at #17 LPI (Bookem x Bolton, #76 Pro$), Velthuis Alpine at #24 LPI (Snowman x Planet, #46 Pro$) and Dymentholm S Sympatico at #25 LPI (Snowman x Planet, #40 Pro$). This brings a total of eight newly proven bulls entering the Top 25 for LPI and six entering the Top 25 for Pro$.
