For the second proof run in a row, Mr Mogul Delta 1427-ET maintains a hold on his position as the breed leader for both Pro$ and LPI (#4 Fat). Of the newly proven bulls this round, two rank among the Top 10 for Pro$. Boldi Accurate, a Vieuxsaule Flame-ET son out of Velthuis Supersonic Alyssa, is the highest newly proven Pro$ sire taking #5 spot (#35 LPI). His full brother, Boldi Andre, is this round’s highest newly proven sire for LPI grabbing #11 position (#61 Pro$). Bryceholme Brodie-ET, a Supersire son out of Marbri Oman Oman Bea, is the second highest newly proven bull for both Pro$ and LPI, ranking #7 and #18 respectively (#6 Milk, tied #9 Protein).
Pro$ has now been available for over three years. Over time, it has become evident that certain bloodlines are pushing the two top lists to gradually become more diverse. This December, along with #1 sire Delta, only two other proven sires rank among the Top 10 for both national indexes. Ranking #2 for both LPI and Pro$, as well as being tied at #3 for Protein, is the previously proven Glen-D-Haven AltaHotrod (Jerod x AltaIota). Synergy AltaParquet-ET (Numero Uno x Planet) takes a jump up both lists this December, landing at #4 LPI and #6Pro$.
Other previously proven bulls ranking among the Top 10 for Pro$ this round include Seagull-Bay Sargeant-ET (#3 Pro$, #2 Milk, #107 LPI), Mr Coin Draco 15006-ET (#4 Pro$, #43 LPI), De-Su Mickelson 11598-ET (#8 Pro$, #49 LPI) and View-Home Day Missouri-ET (#9 Pro$, #26 LPI, #2 Protein, #7 Milk). After improving his rank substantially since the August proofs, Boldi V Armour, a maternal brother to the previously mentioned leading newcomers, Accurate and Andre, rounds out the Top 10 Pro$ list in #10 position (#39LPI).
Following the two breed leaders for LPI this round, Delta and AltaHotrod, is EDG Rubicon (Mogul x Robust) in #3 spot (#25 Pro$), who also stays firm at #2 in the breed for Fat. Three other bulls maintain their elite status on the Top 10 LPI list from last round, namely Comestar Lautrust, at #5 LPI (#28 Pro$), Gillette Byroad (#6 LPI, #78 Pro$) and Mapel Wood Brewmaster (#7 LPI, #24 Pro$), who maintains his position as the breed leader for Fat. Completing the Top 10 LPI list are three sires that improve their rank to secure them a place among the Top 10 this round. These include Lone-Oak- Acres AltaRoble-ET (#8 LPI, #73 Pro$, tied #6 Conformation, Mogul x Observer), Co-op Renegade-ET (#9 LPI, #102 Pro$, McCutchen x G W Atwood) and Regel AltaToprock (#10 LPI, #47 Pro$, Shamrock xMillion).
Other noteworthy news this round is the arrival of Bovo Bomba (Doorman x Super) as a newly proven sire that reaches #1 Conformation at +16, to be tied with Velthuis SGC Atmost, as well as the increase of 10 kg for Protein for the polled sire, View-Home Powerball-P-ET (Earnhardt x Robust), to become the new breed leader.
Ample Diversity Among Newly Proven Bulls in the Top 50
Outside of the newly proven sires already mentioned, there are eight other impressive newcomers that make their debut among the Top 50 for Pro$ and/or LPI. One bull manages to reach this status for both national indexes as Bomaz AltaSabre-ET (Jacey x Robust) arrives at #34 LPI and #35 Pro$. Two other sires, both out of dams by Epic, rank well for Pro$ as Boldi V Astrolab (Jabir son out of Boldi V S G Epic Aster) takes #15 Pro$ (#53 LPI) and Seric Rico (Jacey son out of Seric Epic Mayana) enters at #34 Pro$ (#77 LPI). Other sires with an interesting start for Pro$ are Crasdale Blondin BH Mars-ET, who is a Cashcoin son out of Sully Numero Uno Maribel-ET that receives his first official proof at #42 Pro$ (#57 LPI), as well as Mr American Daft Punk-ET (Day x Robust), debuting tied at #44 Pro$ (#88 LPI). Finishing off the newcomers that pentrate the Top 50 LPI list this round are Bacon-Hill Pety Modesty-ET (Pety x Supersire), who is tied at #40 LPI (#81 Pro$) and EDG Saturn Sender 8136-ET (Mogul x Man-O-Man) at #45 LPI (#182Pro$).
Top GLPI and Pro$ Lists Each Welcome a Newly Indexed Cow
This December release sees one newly indexed cow enter each list of Top 10 Pro$ and Top 10 GLPI, and both are sired by AltaHotrod. Peak Loyal Hrod 60124-ET, who is out of Mapel Wood McCutchen Loyality, debuts at #5 Pro$ (#17 GLPI), while Progenesis Hotrod Mia (dam is Woodcrest Def Manhattan-ET) arrives tied at #9 GLPI (#18Pro$).
Four previously indexed cows rank among the Top 10 for both GLPI and Pro$. Three of these impressive animals carry the “Stantons” prefix and are sired by “Delta”. Leading the GLPI list again this December is Stantons Does Appear-ET (#1 GLPI, #7 Pro$). Stantons Bee Desired-ET stays firm in her #1 rank again this round for Pro$ in addition to being #2 GLPI (tied #10 Fat). Stantons Delta Approved-ET, full sister to Stantons Does Appear-ET (dam is Stantons Cameo Appearance), holds steady among the Top 10 for each list at #4 Pro$ and #5 GLPI. The fourth cow to penetrate both Top 10 charts is Dudoc Superman Somnanbule, tied at #3 GLPI and #9 Pro$, who’s dam is Dudoc McCutchen Rancune P*POC (#16 GLPI, #44Pro$).
Three other daughters of Rancune*POC also all manage to maintain their Top 10 status for either index as Dudoc Silver Sarcasme*POC is tied at #3 GLPI (#12 Pro$), Dudoc Boastful Blaspheme takes #8 Pro$ and #9 GLPI, and Dudoc Missouri Menace-P*POR at #8 GLPI and #10 Pro$. Benner Octoberfest Jingko moves up from #4 to #2 Pro$ this round and ranks #14 GLPI. Stantons Bee Daisy-ET, full sister to the previously mentioned Stantons Bee Desired-ET (Delta daughters out of Ri-Val-Re Num Uno Bee- ET), now occupies #3 Pro$ (#13 GLPI), while Silverridge V Sshot Erynne moves up to #6 Pro$ (#20 GLPI) and is tied at #6 for Protein in the breed.
The list of Top 10 GLPI cows is completed by four previously indexed cows including two with very little change from August, namely Stantons Silver Emoticon-ET (#6 GLPI, #16 Pro$) and Stantons Real Dollars-ET (#8 GLPI, #15 Pro$). Two others, however, both daughters of Rubicon, take a jump up the GLPI list this round, namely Lindenright Rubicon Moofia (#7 GLPI from #21, #266 Pro$) and Stantons Rubicon Cranking Up (tied at #9 GLPI from #20, #54Pro$).
A final noteworthy newly indexed cow this round is Lima Biscuit Doorman (Doorman x Lima Biscotti Dempsey), who ties with Brenland Doorman Desirable and Sunnypoint 2024 Lady D as the #1 cow for Conformation at +17.
