April 2019 – Brown Swiss Canada Proofs

“Toledo” Makes an Impressive Debut Among Brown Swiss Bulls

The Brown Swiss breed welcomes a new recruit, Lime Rock Toledo (Motown x Driver), to the lineup of breed stars with his arrival this round at #5 LPI, tied #6 Fat and #7 Protein. In terms of bulls previously proven some re ranking takes place this April due to changes in the LPI formula, especially with fat now having equal emphasis compared to protein. Former breed leaders switch places as Huray now takes #1 LPI (#2 Milk, #1 Fat, #1 Protein) and Lime Rock Seasidebloom slips to #2 LPI (#1 Milk, tied #4 Fat, #2 Protein). After achieving significant LPI gains last round, Shiloh Brookings Cadence ET stays firm in #3 LPI spot (#5 Milk, #3 Fat, #3 Protein). With significant gains for all production traits, Scherma Blooming Biver increases 311 LPI points to jump from #11 to #4 position this round (tied #6 Fat, #6 Protein). Another newly proven young sire of interest this round is Holyland Turbo ET (Nelgor son out of Cozy Nook Joel Tipsy ET), who makes his debut at #14 LPI (#10 Milk, #8
Fat).

As for sires, the list of top GLPI cows also experiences some re-ranking resulting from the new LPI formula this April. Gubelman Juhus Crystal gains 120 LPI points to take #1 spot (#2 Fat, #4 Protein) and is now followed by Nor Bella Paul Eve at #2 GLPI (#1 Fat, tied #2 Conformation) after increasing 111 LPI points. After her outstanding accomplishment last December as the breed leader, Charluson Cadence Dalida is now forced into #3 GLPI position (#2 Milk, #4 Fat, tied #2 Protein). Gubelman Biver Kendra (Biver x Grob’s Vigor Egal) is the highest newly indexed cow this round and penetrates the list of elites at #5 GLPI (tied #8 Fat). Gubelman Driver Belle completes the list of Top 5 GLPI cows this round in #5 position (#5 Milk, #5 Protein).
