August 2019 – Ayrshire Canada Proofs

Five Newly Proven Sires Penetrate Top 25 for LPI or Pro$

This August release sees three newcomers enter the Top 25 for LPI while two others achieve Top 25 status for Pro$. The highest of these is Mardel Miajump‐ET at #3 Pro$ (#26 LPI, #8 Fat), who is one of the first two proven sons of Jumper and his dam is Mardel Oblique Mia‐Mi 28. He lands behind Orraryd (#1 LPI, #5 Milk, #4 Fat, #2 Protein) and Des Fleurs Patriote‐ET (#8 LPI, #4 Milk, #3 Fat, #4 Protein) as they remain solid at #1 and #2 Pro$, respectively. The highest new arrival for LPI is De La Plaine Blink with his debut in #17 position (#28 Pro$, Decaf x Burdette). The other newly proven sires that make the Top 25 ranking include Kildare Primer‐ET (#18 Pro$, #50 LPI, Prime x Orraryd), Birghdale Nonstop (#24 LPI, #39 Pro$, Decaf x Oblique) and Ruisseau Clair Alibaba ET at #25 LPI (#57 Pro$, Marlow x Kansas). Two other sires receive very successful first proofs for only production or type as the Finnish bull, Sammatin Valpas, dominates for production easily becoming the new breed leader for Milk, Fat and Protein, while Ruisseau Clair Adidas (Bigstar son out of Duo Star Athena‐ET, by Oblique) is tied at #4 Conformation.

In terms of the Top 10 LPI list this round, it includes the exact same group of bulls as in April, still led by Orraryd and followed by Du Petit Bois Animate (#2 LPI, #12 Pro$) and Kamouraska Bigstar‐ET (#3 LPI, #17 Pro$, tied #1 Conformation). Switching places for LPI this August are Peterslund (#4 LPI, #7 Pro$, #7 Fat, #6 Protein) and Des Coteaux Revolution‐ET, now taking #5 LPI position (#4 Pro$, #6 Fat, #7 Protein). The remaining sires among the Top 10 LPI experience some reranking as T‐Bruno moves up to #6 LPI (#6 Pro$, #7 Milk, #8 Protein) and is now followed by Kamouraska Decaf‐ET at #7 LPI (tied #29 Pro$), Cock Rond Big Brother (#9 LPI, #14 Pro$) and Kamouraska Subban‐ET, who grabs the #10 position for both LPI and Pro$. Other sires that achieve Top 10 status for Pro$ include Des Fleurs Partial‐ET at #5 Pro$ (tied #15 LPI), Roi Tennison‐ET at #8 Pro$ (#19 LPI, #5 for both Fat and Protein) and Laroc Oreo at #9 Pro$ (#20 LPI).

For cows, the group of five leaders for both GLPI and Pro$ remains the same as in April with minor reshuffling. As Kamouraska Orra Xuby experiences some slippage to land in #3 position for both GLPI and Pro$ (#5 Milk, #8 Fat, #3 Protein), a pair of full sister daughters by Valpas climb the ranks. Specifically, Kamouraska Diva‐ET is reigned the new queen of the breed for both indexes (#2 Milk, #2 Fat, #1 Protein) and Kamouraska Dounia‐ET now occupies the #2 spot for both GLPI and Pro$ (#3 Milk, #1 Fat, #2 Protein). La Sapiniere Facyriss also advances upward and grabs #4 spot for both GLPI and Pro$ this round (#6 Milk, #3 Fat, #4 Protein). The next two positions on each list are now taken by Visserdale Selena 33 (#5 GLPI, #6 Pro$, #7 Fat) and Kamouraska Divine‐ET (#5 Pro$, #6 GLPI, maternal sister to Diva and Dounia). Des Fleurs Orraryd Pardon‐ET is the seventh cow that achieves Top 10 status for both indexes at #7 Pro$ and #9 GLPI (#4 Milk, tied #9 Protein). Two other Xuby daughters continue to do well as Kamouraska Céleste‐ET now takes #7 GLPI (#29 Pro$, #7 Protein) and Kamouraska Dalhousie‐ET occupies #9 Pro$ position (#14 GLPI), staying ahead of Des Fleurs Valpas Parapluie-ET as she climbs to take #10 Pro$ and #11 GLPI (tied #9 Fat, #5 Protein). Three very successful newly indexed cows this round complete the Top 10 lists. For Pro$, the top honours goes to Visserdale Selena 12‐ET in #8 position (#13 GLPI, #4 Fat, tied #9 Protein), who is a Valpas daughter out of Visserdale Selena 3, by Rockstar. The two newly indexed cows that enter the Top 10 LPI list include Kamouraska Erica‐ET in #8 spot (#17 Pro$, Xuby daughter by Bigstar) and Ruisseau Clair Orraryd Athene‐ET at #10 GLPI (#16 Pro$, dam is Duo Star Athene‐ET).
