ABS Global Graduates 11 Sires with Continued Focus on Profitable Genetics

ABS Global, Inc., the world leader in bovine genetics, reproduction services and technologies, graduates 11 sires into its proven sire lineup that provide a wide array of favorable traits for dairy producers across the globe.

“Topping our proven list is Uecker Supersire Josuper-ET,” says Mitch Amundson, Global Dairy Brand Manager. “29HO17553 JOSUPER is truly unmatched in his ability to improve protein and milk production while balancing health and fertility. This 5-star semen fertility sire scores well for easy calving, making him desirable for all markets.”

ABS Global is committed to providing the best genetics for each producer’s individual herd. The new graduate line-up features Holstein sires high in milk production, conformation and calving ease while also improving female fertility.

ABS-bred Icon Sires 29HO18296 ACHIEVER and 29HO18343 MEDLEY both rank in the top genomic lists for TPI® and NM$, a thrilling feat for these young bulls. They lead in production, health and are both 5-star TransitionRight® sires.

“Achiever and Medley are early results from our ABS female program,” Amundson continues. “This shows the program is working with the very best genetics and is geared toward improving herds and helping our customers profit from genetic progress.”

At ABS we recognize the dairymen’s needs. It is our mission to produce a superior sire lineup that tailors to the management style and desires of every herd. We are pleased to announce our newest proven sires that will offer dairymen a variety of traits to help all operations achieve their goals.
