COGENT BRINGS MUSCLE AND MILK TO THE HEREFORD LINE-UP

Romany 1 Lawbreaker, a breed-leading Hereford, has joined Cogent's Signature Beef line-up.

Lawbreaker brings together an almost unparalleled combination of genetic potential with unique physical and statistical performance.  He ranks in the top 5% of the breed for 200, 400 and 600 days and with an eye muscle area of +3.5, Lawbreaker will be the bull to suit all markets.

This exciting new bull also offers great maternal strengths with a self replacing index of +41 and a terminal index in the top 5% of the breed.

Added to this is a family reputation for success in the show ring. His sire, Spurstow Recruit 1st, is a consistent producer of progeny with quality carcass traits and has already delivered show and sale champions with one of his first daughters winning the National Poll Show in 2014.  

Cogent's Beef Sire Analyst, Boomer Birch said: "We are delighted to continue bringing such high calibre bloodlines to the Cogent Signature Beef portfolio. Lawbreaker is a breath of fresh air, full of breed character with great muscle and growth.

"His exceptional structure is complemented by breed leading EBV's and he will be perfect for use in any sector of the beef production industry. He offers some of the best breed-leading genetics to both commercial and pedigree producers and is a bull that will certainly stand out from the crowd. We can expect this bull to break all the rules by transmitting muscle with milk to his progeny."

Robert Wilson from Romany Poll Herefords, and Lawbreaker's breeder, said: "Lawbreaker was always a stand-out calf among his peers, full of breed character and exhibiting all the traits needed in a modern Hereford bull. We are delighted producers will have the chance to use him. On seeing his sire's carcass as a young calf, we had to have him and this was before we even knew about his unique pedigree or excellent performance data.

"We feel Lawbreaker exhibits similar virtues in his performance, length, muscle and balance. His dam is also from one of our best and oldest female lines within the herd. Whatever avenue of beef production he is being considered for, he should tick all the boxes."
