Asteroids Dam delivers the goods!
May 9, 2013

Sterling Sires Ltd is delighted to announce that “Dulais Shottle Ashlyn”, the dam of British bred Global Type Sensation “Dulais Asteroid” is doing everything we expect from one of our bull dams.

Ashlyn who is bred and owned by Nev & Rhian Roberts was classified yesterday for the first time by Holstein UK and scored VG86 2yr with a VG88 Udder. This is particularly pleasing as she is projected at over 11,200kg as a heifer and is already checked back in-calf again for the autumn.

Commenting on “Ashlyn” Sterling Sires owner Paul Westaway said “I have always admired Asteroids dam since she was a calf, the fact that she is now doing everything I want a bull dam to do, i.e. classify well, milk well and most importantly get back in calf gives me even more confidence in her son Dulais Asteroid”

Asteroid is a son of Windbrook who brings a nice outcross bloodline to many herds being an FBI from a Blitz, his female family contains two All Britain cows in milk and the All Time All American 4yr old “Tri-Day Ashlyn EX96”.

Asteroids semen is available now from Sterling Sires, please call 01531 890810 or email for more details.
