Cogent Supershot reaches new milestone with introduction of sexed semen

Cogent Breeding's elite selection of sexed ExelGen sires has risen to a new level with the introduction of world-leading genomic sire, Cogent Supershot.

Supershot has been in global demand since his launch last year and he remains the world's number 3 GTPI sire.  

In Canada, he is the number two sire ranked on genomic LPI with an index of +3457. In the UK, he is the number one for milk out of the top 50 PLI bulls with a massive milk figure of +905 kgs; combine this with his positive fertility of +4.5 and it is clear to see the significant impact he is making on the Holstein breed.

Elsewhere around the world Supershot excels, with a GPFT in Italy of +3103, an RZG in Germany of +159, an NVI in Holland of +289 and a PF in Poland of +150. He also scores well on the USA's economic index, Net Merit, at +853 and is the second highest bull for daughter registrations with 113 progeny with an average TPI of +2360.

Owain Harries, Cogent's Genetic Procurement Manager, said: "Supershot is a firm favourite in the Cogent stud and over time, he has turned into a fantastic semen producer.

"In today's market, it is vital that farmers invest in the right semen to get the best results and as the greatest Supersire son in the world, Supershot combines a breed leading transmitting pattern with a solid, reliable cow family. He is an excellent addition to our sexed portfolio and is competitively priced for a world class bull."
