December 2020 – Holstein Canada Genetic Evaluations

Top 10 LPI and Pro$ Lists Both Welcome an Interesting Newcomer
While the LPI and Pro$ lists experience some reshuffling this round, both each add one newcomer  to the elite status of Top 10. For LPI, it
is Melarry Fuel‐ET that grabs #7 position (#34 Pro$, dam is Melarry Kingboy Fudgie‐ET) and becomes the highest for LPI of the first three proven sons in  Canada of Duke (#3 Milk, #2 Fat, #2 Protein). On the Pro$ side, its Progenesis Dockside that achieves Top 10 status with his debut in #10 position (#32 LPI), who is among the first group  proven sons in Canada of Doorsopen (dam is Woodcrest Def Manhattan‐ET). Dockside is a maternal brother to Progenesis Seducer (Supershot x Defender), who makes significant gains for both production and type traits and catapults to take #2 Pro$ (from #17) and #4 LPI (from #20) this round. S‐S‐I Millington Totem‐ET (Millington x Jacey) manages to climb one spot among the ranks for both indexes, now reaching #1 Pro$ and #2 LPI. Farnear Delta‐Lambda‐ET (Delta x Numero Uno) also climbs one notch for LPI to become the new breed leader while also staying among the Top 10 for Pro$ in #8 position (tied #3 Conformation). The only other sire to achieve Top 10 status for both indexes this round is EDG Rubicon‐ET (Mogul x Robust), now at #3 Pro$ and #6 LPI (#4 Fat).

Looking at the other sires penetrating the Top 10 LPI list this round, Stantons Alligator‐ET (Kingboy x McCutchen) also gains one spot to #3 position (tied #51 Pro$, tied #3 Conformation) while former leader, Peak AltaMarlon (AltaSpring x O‐Style) slips to #5 LPI (#17 Pro$). Three bulls complete the Top 10 LPI list, namely Stantons Actually (Silver x McCutchen, maternal brother to Alligator) at #8 LPI (tied #27 Pro$), Westcoast Randall (Loptimum x Numero Uno) at #9 LPI (#15 Pro$) and Wilra Harvest‐ET (Monterey x Numero Uno) in #10 LPI position (#44 Pro$). There are also five sires that complete the Top 10 Pro$ list this round, with positions 4 to 7 now occupied by Peak Hotline‐ET (#4 Pro$, #33 LPI, #6 Fat, AltaHotrod x Mogul), S‐S‐I Silver Spike‐ET (#5 Pro$, #28 LPI, Silver x Jacey), Ronelee Midnight Detour‐ET (#6 Pro$, #14 LPI, Midnight x Mogul) and Peak AltaPainter‐ET (#7 Pro$, #17 LPI, Davinci x Numero Uno). To round off the Top 10 Pro$ list is S‐S‐I Kingpin Phantom‐ET (Kingpin x Supersire), who slips from #3 to #9 position this round (#20 LPI, tied #8 Protein).

Outside of the arrival of Fuel and Dockside as the highest newly proven sires this round for LPI and Pro$ respectively, there are six others that penetrate the Top 35 ranks for either national index. The highest of these is Silverridge V Wonder at #21 Pro$ (#105 LPI, Supershot son out of Silverridge V Munition Erlina). The full‐brother combination of Progenesis Modulo (#22 Pro$, #65 LPI, tied #8 Fat) and Progenesis Midnight (tied #27 Pro$, tied #69 LPI, #7 Fat) also make an interesting debut and they are maternal brothers by Duke of Seducer (#2 Pro$) and Dockside (#10 Pro$). Stantons Useful‐ET (Yoder son out of Stantons Crazy 4 Camaro‐ET) also achieves Top 35  Pro$ status with his arrival in #32 position (tied #49 LPI). The two other newcomers that penetrate the Top 35 LPI list this round are Brabantdale Drake ET (Commander son out of TJR McCutchen Dice‐ET), who arrives tied in #25 position (#45 Pro$) and Stantons Ateam‐ET (Silver son out of Stantons Cameo Appearance), who is tied at #34 LPI (#78 Pro$). Two other noteworthy sires that achieve outstanding results with their first Canadian progeny proof for either production or type De‐Su 13050 Spectre‐ET (Yoder x Supersire), who takes #3 rank for Fat with +130 kg, and Walnutlawn Sidekick (Abbott x McCutchen), who lands tied at #1 Conformation with +19.

A New Queen is Crowned for Each of GLPI and Pro$
Two elite cows that previously reached Top 10 status for both GLPI and Pro$ have now climbed the list to be crowned breed queen for this December round. For GLPI, Lindenright Lambda Mocha stays strong and climbs the final step on the ladder to reach #1 GLPI (#16 Pro$, Lambda daughter out of Lindenright Rubicon Moofia). On the Pro$ side, its Midas‐Touch Hot Holy‐ET (Hotline daughter out of AOT Rubicon Happening‐ET) that fights back to retake the #1 Pro$ spot (#7 GLPI, #5 Fat) that she lost last round in August. The highest newly indexed cow this round makes an outstanding entrance as Benner Eugenio Jaymie grabs #2 Pro$ and #5 GLPI. This promising 3‐year‐old becomes the newest family member among the Top 10 lists, along with her dam, Benner Octoberfest Jingko at #4 GLPI and #3 Pro$, and her maternal sister full‐sibs, namely Benner Salvatore Jamocha at #2 GLPI and #10 Pro$ and Benner Salvatore Jamboree at #9 GLPI (#15 Pro$).

Three former Top 10 GLPI cows from last round maintain this elite status as Stantons Adorable Approved climbs from #9 to #3 GLPI (#37 Pro$), Nemesis Zipit Laius also ups her ranks to #6 GLPI (#13 Pro$) and Progenesis Imax Perfection lands in #8 GLPI position (#15 Pro$). Two cows tied at #10 GLPI complete that Top 10 list, namely Beauxpres Seducer Cassy (tied #30 Pro$, dam is Beauxpres Elbombero Carmeny) and Benner Chief Beejay (#181 Pro$, dam is Benner Bookel Burlap).

A second newly indexed cow this round manages to penetrate the Top 10 Pro$ list as Progenesis Guarant Millions arrives in #8 position (tied #49 GLPI, dam is Progenesis Duke Moldavite). Her paternal sister by Guarantee, namely Stantons Guarantee Go For Gold (dam is Stantons Bee Desired‐ET), cannot defend her #1 Pro$ ranking of last August but maintains her Top 10 status in #4 Pro$ position (#205 GLPI, tied #8 Protein). Two Helix daughters, also with the Stantons prefix, also keep their Top 10 Pro$ status this round as Stantons Hot Dollars‐ET takes #5 Pro$ spot (#32 GLPI, dam is Stantons Real Dollars‐ET) and Stantons Some Helix‐ET immediately follows at #6 Pro$  (tied #77 GLPI, #6 Fat, dam is Stantons Bee Something‐ET). The two remaining cows that complete the Top 10 Pro$ list are Progenesis Detour Kansas, still in #7 position (#34 GLPI, dam is Progenesis Supershot Kassidy) and Morningview Duke Zip climbs to take #9 Pro$ (#14 GLPI, #2 Fat, dam is Morningview Yoder Zeplin).

Of particular interest this round is a tidal wave of 15 cows that are newly indexed for type and all  manage to achieve Top 10 status for Conformation. These include two cows that become the new breed leaders, tied at +19 Conformation, namely Suntasia Image of Amber, who is a Jacoby daughter out of J‐A‐Telford Atwood Amber, and Lebold Dreamview Mavis, who is a daughter of  Sidekick out of Claynook Mexx Alligator.
