Summum Vivaldi Ira, daughter of Vivaldi, #1 LPI sire and #4 GLPI Cow & #5 Pro$

While Golden GDK Vivaldi (DJ Lix x Impuls) stays firm as #1 LPI sire, River Valley Cece Chrome-ET (Critic-P x Celebrity) receives his first official progeny proof and grabs #1 Pro$ (#4 LPI), forcing Vivaldi into the #2 Pro$ spot. On the Top 10 lists for LPI and Pro$ there are six other bulls that are in common on both. Holding on at #2 and #3 LPI, respectively, are maternal brothers Hawarden Dimension Pilgrim-ET (#10 Pro$, #5 Fat) and Hawarden Impuls Premier (#6 Pro$). At #3 Pro$ this round is Wilsonview IF Matt-ET (#5 LPI), followed by ERTL Mantra at #4 Pro$ (#8 LPI, tied #5 Protein) and All Lynns Valentino Irwin-ET at #5 Pro$ (#10 LPI). Sunset Canyon Dignitary-ET also maintains his Top 10 status for both indexes now ranking #6 for LPI and #7 for Pro$. Missiska MacKenzie ET continues to be strong for LPI in #7 position (#23 Pro$) while the second highest newly proven sire for LPI this round and the new #1 for Fat (tied #5 Protein) is Sunset Canyon Megatron-ET (Merchant son out of Sunset Canyon Impuls L Maid 4-ET) with his arrival at #9 LPI (#29 Pro$). Another newly proven sire this round excels for Pro$ as River Valley Pfennig Perfect Fit makes his debut at #8 Pro$ (#12 LPI), just ahead of Jars of Clay Barnabas at #9 Pro$ (#13 LPI).

For Jersey cows, this round welcomes a new breed leader for both LPI and Pro$ with the outstanding results of two newly indexed cows. For GLPI, it is Lencrest Cocopuff, by Vivaldi, that takes #1 spot (#3 Pro$, tied #2 Fat) and is immediately followed by her dam, Lencrest Premier Coco ET at #2 GLPI (#44 Pro$). This daughter-dam pair force the former leader, Guimo Premier Joany ET, into #3 GLPI position. For Pro$, Joany is also nudged back to #2 spot with the arrival of Reyla Archer Kendall as she debuts at #1 Pro$ and #7 GLPI (#2 Milk, #3 Protein). Kendall is a daughter of Gabys Archer-ET out of Reyla Premier Kijiji ET at #9 GLPI (#15 Pro$). Two other cows achieve the elite status of Top 10 for both indexes, namely Summum Vivaldi Ira at #4 GLPI and #5 Pro$ and newly indexed Redhot Matt Tesla ET at #6 GLPI and #7 Pro$, who also becomes the new #1 for Conformation at +18. Another cow with her first official GLPI this round, taking #8 position, is Guimo Vivaldi Jezia (#12 Pro$, dam is Guimo Legal Jany ET). Completing the Top 10 GLPI list is Guimo Vivaldi Lysanne at #5 GLPI (#17 Pro$) and FDL Premier Belle at #10 GLPI (#19 Pro$). Three other newly indexed cows manage to enter the Top 10 Pro$ list this round as Reyla Matt Merlot ET takes #6 Pro$ (#27 GLPI), Lone Pine Megapower Tsunami lands at #8 Pro$ (#16 GLPI) and Estran Vivaldi Concerto debuts at #9 Pro$ (#21 GLPI). The Top 10 Pro$ list is completed by Guimo Zuma Julia ET at #4 Pro$ (#17 GLPI, maternal sister to Joany) and Reyla Barnabas Dolce Vita in #10 Pro$ position (#23 GLPI). Two other young cows with significant success this round include Jada Archer Milady ET, who becomes the new #1 Milk and #1 Protein in the breed, and Kambro Morris Maple 6257 who becomes the new #1 Fat.
