Indexation IBOVAL 2012 in Charolais breed

Indexation IBOVAL 2012 is official recently in Charolais breed. This new output index is an opportunity to synthesize the strongest growth and update the ranking of top bulls.

Charolais Optimal bulls on the highest steps of the podium

Revealed two years ago, TAMILLY remains the French No. 1 in maternal treats of bulls tested for the renewal, with maternal treats of 128. Closely followed by the runner POPULAIR (maternal treats 125), he confirms with his first progeny, the index level on calving ease, growth and morphology. Maternal side, these two bulls remain undisputed by the level of production of their daughters.

UNIBLOC: French No 1 in Index at weaningFor index at weaning, the assessment of additional 2732 weaned calves allows an increase of 11 points for the bull UNIBLOC. Already crowned in 2011 by Gold Trophies of Genetics, as a Charolais bull the most used in France, this “heifer bull” is now credited with an index at weaning of 132 and a reliability of 0.99. He becomes the new French No. 1 for the production at weaning. The qualities of birth, growth and muscle development of the descendants of UNIBLOC are now recognized and widely acclaimed by breeders and genetic engineers.

With the arrival of new descendants, many bulls improve their standard index of more than 3 points.

UNMARQUIS: best improvement in dairy abilityAmong the most striking developments of recent bulls brought to market, we can also report good growth in:

The range of Charolais bulls from Genes Diffusion can meet all the objectives of selection regardless of the type of production. They can be used on heifers, economically successful at weaning and fattening or very enhancers in maternal treats, the Charolais Optimal bulls confirm both in quantity and quality.

The first publications for Ability of calving and Milk: SC VIRGIL French No. 1 in Ability of Calving

Already well provided with bulls indexed on farms for these two skills, IBOVAL 2012 can largely complement the grid indexing Charolais Optimal bulls.

New publications of the ability of calving clearly reinforce the effort of GENES DIFFUSION to select on this character with the revelation of bulls ARTOIS (Ab.calving 117), VOIMO (Ab.calving 111), VRIGNY (Ab.calving 110), UZELIER (Ab.calving 107) and TOLEDO (Ab.calving 107). The polled bulls are not marginal as well, because VIRGIL SC becomes, with an index of 125, the new French No. 1 in Ability of calving. VIRGIL SC : French No. 1 in ability of calving of daughters, the inescapable polled starOften in the shadow of VIRGIL SC, VIZIR SC displays breeding value of 115. It may be noted that all these bulls that we can use on heifers, are largely positive while it is difficult to select these two characters together (Birth ease and Calving ease of daughters) that are negatively correlated.

Dairy Ability side, the index or the breeding value of 99 and 100 in Milk, respectively for VIRGIL SC and VIZIR SC, allow an indexing of Maternal Treats that culminate around 118 for each. These two polled bulls’ stars have nothing to envy their horned counterparts. The bull UZELIER works, meanwhile, in the footsteps of his father NOVOTEL with milk value of 118.
