ABS Global Graduates 18 Sires Lineup Includes High-performing TransitionRight™ Genetics

MADISON, Wis., U.S.A. (December 8, 2015) — ABS® Global, the world leader in bovine genetics, reproduction services, and artificial insemination technologies, is excited to announce another strong sire lineup with 18 new graduates from 10 different sires. These graduates are certain to impress the market and deliver the genetic gains our customers are seeking. Our globally-marketed graduates average +1.5 DPR, 7.2 sire calving ease, +862 PTAM, and +479 NM$--and seven of them bring more than +1,000 milk.

Our graduates are not the only thing that is exciting at ABS—we continue to provide a revolutionary genetic selection tool to dairy farmers around the globe—TransitionRight Genetics. This patent-pending technology helps resolve the age-old struggles of how to prevent and react to health issues that arise during the transition cow period. ABS customers have been using TransitionRight for several months now to select genetics that minimize the need for preventive and reactionary measures often necessary during this time—saving them time and up to $100 per cow with each lactation.
