DEIGE (GOLDWYN x OUTSIDE x RUDOLPH)

7034 - Sire: Deige - Owner: GAEC Marliere. La Grande (Fr.)DEIGE is a bull who lost a little bit on the ground of ISU with a 145 points level today. But do not draw hasty conclusions of this decrease, what is actually a loss of only 6 points if we take into consideration the base changes and the arrival of more than 50 daughters in his index.

It is important to look in details the values of this bull rather than focusing only on his overall index. Indeed, the ISU loss is mainly due to a fall of 400 kg of milk. For the rest, the rate and the type remain unchanged. Regarding health traits, the bull remains in the average index for udder health (+0.2). Considered as one of the French fertility specialists, DEIGE further improves his level to reach +1.9.
