Alta’s FUTURE STAR line-up offers a selection of elite genomic sires with real, proven observations for fertility and calving ease.
In general, sires tend to be separated into two groups: genomic-proven bulls or daughter-proven sires. However, Alta FUTURE STARS lie in between. A sire gets daughter information for fertility and calving traits long before daughter-proven production and type data are available.
After a sire is first released, we collect real pregnancy check observations using DairyComp data from our partner dairies to determine which sires are above average for fertility. Those bulls are labeled with the coveted CONCEPT PLUS designation.
In the same way, after the first calves from a new genomic-proven sires are born, we gather calving ease data from our partner herds, and use those real observations to determine a sire’s actual daughter proof for calving ease and sire still births.
You can use FUTURE STAR sires with confidence knowing they offer:
- A high-ranking genomic proof for production, health and conformation traits
- Real pregnancy check results confirming the high sire fertility CONCEPT PLUS status
- Daughter-proven results for low sire calving ease
Balance peace of mind with rapid genetic progress by taking advantage of Alta FUTURE STAR sires!
