Semex believes that Genetics for Life is about delivering the best possible product to our clients. We're genomic testing over 5000 bulls each year, ensuring that only the very best call stud 200 home and are designated a Genomax™ sire. In April 2014, these rigorous testing standards paid off with three of the top 10, six of the top 20 and nine of the top 30 from Holstein USA's Top 100 TPI Genomic Young Bull list.
Joining this elite Genomax group is the world's #3 GTPI McCutchen son, 0200HO06639 Stantons Pulsar, a HealthSmart™ and Robot Ready™ sire. Pulsar has impressive statistics to back up his high ranking as the #12 GTPI sire on Holstein USA's Top 100 Genomic Young Bulls! His statistics are impressive with a +2541 GTPI, 816 NM$, +2.3 DPR and +6.2 PL with solid +3.62 PTAT and +3.21 UDC, making him Semex's #4 GTPI sire and our #3 GLPI sire (#10 GLPI overall).
Like all Genomax sires, Pulsar's maternal line is second to none and laced with cows that have been impacting the breed for generations. His dam is a young GP-83 Superstition with one Superior Lactation Award to date from a 2-01 record of over 27,000 lb/12,300 kg and 4.0 Fat in 305 days. Next dam is Wabash-Way Evett VG-86 DOM 11*, dam of numerous bulls in stud and then the former #1 CTPI cow Crockett-Acres Elita VG-87 GMD DOM 11*. Following Elita is Mtot Elly EX-90 GMD DOM 9* x EX-90 Rudolph Elly Mae x EX-95-3E GMD DOM Lead Mae.
"We expect Pulsar to be an extremely popular flush sire," says Brian Carscadden, Semex Sire Analyst. "He fits well with a lot of different individuals and bloodlines. His high ranking and pedigree make him a good fit and option for many breeders and dairymen."
Pulsar will be available worldwide beginning July 1, 2014. For more information on Semex, Genetics for Life or the industry leading Genomax sires visit www.semex.com
