“Poker” Delivers Two Newly Proven Sons in the Top 15 LPI Ayrshires
August 11, 2015

Kellcrest Riesling (Poker son out of Kellcrest Roussette, by Peterslund) is the highest newly proven sire this round entering at #6 LPI. His paternal brother, Kamouraska Volvo-ET, who is out of the wellknown Kamouraska Peterslund Ruby, also has a great debut landing at #12 LPI and is tied at #4 Conformation with +12. Although Orraryd still holds on at #1 LPI, the new LPI formula results in extra re-ranking among other breed leaders. Peterslund takes #2 LPI and is now followed by Chakula Virgile-ET, Kamouraska Decaf-ET (maternal brother to Volvo and Rockstar at #13 LPI) and T-Bruno, in that order, to complete the Top 5 LPI list. Another young sire graduate this round that warrants special mention is Duo Star Gentleman-ET (Reality son out of Duo Star Amour-ET, who is #1 Conformation cow), who becomes the new #1 Conformation bull at +15 and lands at #54 LPI.
The new LPI formula also has an impact on the re-ranking of top cows but Kamouraska Orra Xuby holds on as breed leader at #1 GLPI. Up from her debut position at #11 GLPI last round, Duo Star Armada-ET (granddaughter of Amour) jumps to #2 GLPI, just ahead of Kamouraska Jupi Uby-ET (maternal sister to Xuby) at #3 GLPI. A daughter-dam pair are also new to enter the Top 5 GLPI list as Margot Chocolate-ET (by Oblique) takes #4 GLPI (up from #14) and her dam, Margot Charade, follows at #5 GLPI (up from #21). Two maternal sisters to the newly proven sire, Duo Star Gentleman-ET, also leave an impression as Duo Star Athena-ET and Duo Star Amitie-ET move up the ranks into #7 and #8 GLPI, respectively. The highest cow with her first GLPI this round is Pine Plains Orr Bella, in #23 spot.
