GENEX announces the addition of two Brown Swiss bulls to its lineup. These newly-released, high genetic merit bulls are the result of a partnership between GENEX and Progressive Brown Swiss Sires.

“The objective of the partnership with Progressive Brown Swiss Sires, a breeder-based organization and a segment of the Brown Swiss Cattle Breeders’ Association, is to make high-genetic caliber Brown Swiss bulls available to GENEX members and customers on a more consistent basis,” explains Roy Wilson, GENEX senior vice president of dairy marketing, sales and product development.

“The bulls released today – 1BS00601 HANK and 1BS00602 SHAR-P (D*) – possess the elite genetic credentials today’s progressive Brown Swiss breeders demand.”

HANK, a Cadence x Driver, is a top 10 PPR bull. He stands out for his huge production figures (+1343 Milk, +48 Fat, +43 Protein) while also siring long-lived daughters (+3.4 Productive Life) and improving udders (+1.05 Udder Composite).

SHAR-P, a Jay-P son out of a Cartel daughter, is one of the highest genetic merit polled bulls available in the breed today. He stands at +173 PPR and +446 Lifetime Net Merit and is a breed leader for Fat at +52 and +0.13%. Relay on SHAR-P for fantastic fertility (+2.0 Daughter Pregnancy Rate) and longevity (+3.3 Productive Life). He’s a great mating option for Brookings daughters.
