Following the April bull proof run, Sterling Sires has announced the arrival of the new Hostein sire Danillo, the best proven bull in the world today according to data supplied by Dairy Co and Holstein UK.
Danillo is the only bull in the UK and International top 20 daughter proven PLI rankings to be over +3 on UK type. His proof comes from more than 350 milking daughters in 169 herds. He is also a massive +3.5 for UK legs and feet and +2.4 for UK udders. His chart topping £219 PLI is made up of great production, including a positive figure for both fat and protein%, along with a lifespan of +0.3, a fertility index of +3.5 and a SCC of -19%.
Commenting on the sire, Paul Westaway owner of Sterling Sires said: “PLI is a great measure of the profitability a bull can have on a breeders herd. To get a bull with such a massive PLI of £219 coupled with over 3 points on type and +3 for fertility index leads us to believe he is probably the best daughter proven bull available in the world today, we are delighted to have added him to our line-up.”
