Semex USA Releases Six Newly Proven Holstein Sires

0200HO01796 Stantons SIDNEY
(Lheros x Rudolph x Thor)

Sidney combines two extremely prolific Holstein families... the Laurie Sheiks and the Saturdays.

By the popular Comestar Lheros, Sidney's numbers position him for success in both the LPI and MACE TPI rankings, being +11 Conf/+2.48 PTAT, +10 MS/+1.76UDC with +1423 kg M/+1462 lbs M and a NM$ of 411 with 102 Herd Life and +1.9 Productive Life. In the field, reports cite Sidney daughters as stylish individuals with wide rear udders, strong median suspensory ligaments and hard loins, making them very functional and profitable additions to any herd, anywhere.

Sidney joins his paternal brother, 0200HO05139 Karona Bonair, in the LPI top 10 underlying the breeding power of their EX-97 sire Comestar Lheros and the Laurie Sheik family.

0200HO05156 Comestar LITTORAL
(Stormatic x Rudolph x Blackstar)

Littoral is also from a Rudolph dam, the 2006 Canadian Champion 7 Yr Old in Milk O'Connors TVF Rudolph Lilly with 7-02 305 49,529 1,836 3.7 1,587 3.2 lbs. This family has certainly transmited this high production on to Littoral, making him one of the highest milk bulls in Canada at +2433 kg M with a low SCS of +2.98 and high Herd Life at 108.

His MACE TPI figures certainly echo his Canadian proof with +2314 lbs/+2433kgs M, +1715 TPI/+1579 LPI, +2.19 PTAT/+10 Conf, +1.17 FLC/+9 F&L with a low +2.93/+2.90 SCS, high +2.06 PL/108 Herd Life and nearly 400 for NM$.

Littoral daughters are very high producing cows in the field, being long and silky with great flatness of bone. They walk through the barn and freestalls on comfortable feet & legs with udders that have held up extremely well to their high production levels, making them easy favorites in the parlor. With more great daughters to be added to his proof in April, Littoral will quickly become highly sought after worldwide.
