Famous Goldwyn Brothers Offer Rare & Exceptional Opportunity


Hailing from an exceptional Durham dam, Gillette-I Durham Jericho EX-CAN 10*, with records to over 22,000 kg/48,000 lbs in 305 days and nearly 90,000 kgs/200,000 lbs lifetime, plus three more VG or EX dams, dictated success for Jordan and Jerrick.
Jericho went VG-87 in her second lactation, but was bred right back to carry. So when she calved for the third time she really bloomed to her full potential, says Julien Chabot, Semex Sire Analyst and buyer of Jerrick and Jordan.
She had a Freelance heifer that now is EX-93. Jericho went VG-89 early in lactation, and a few months later moved up to EX. Her first flush was to Canyon-Breeze Allen, which produced an EX-91 daughter. The second flush was to Goldwyn just after he was made available. It produced Jerrick, Jordan and a heifer, Jenny. She is VG as a first calver and has one of the highest LPI direct genomic values in the Gillette herd.
Being split embryo brothers makes Jordan and Jerrick 100% identical in their DNA, offering a rare and exceptional opportunity. However, in their initial proof we will see small differences in their breakdowns due to maternal influence of the daughters as well as environmental impact. The biggest difference at this point, is in their daughter numbers.
As the breeds newest #1 LPI sire, Designer Series sire 0200HO05575 Gillette Jordan arrives after months of speculation and anticipation without disappointment. These cows are easy to find, says Carl Saucier, CIAQ Progeny Analyst. Just look for the best feet & legs and udders in the barns! Theyre sweet cows, beautiful, feminine and have great rear udders with lots of crease and veination.
Proof positive, Jordans LPI of +2740, +15 Conf, +14 MS, +13 FL with +110 Herd Life, +107 Calving Ability, +107 D Calving Ability and low 2.49 SCS with positive deviations certainly agrees with these comments of being an all-around sire. On the US scale, he does not disappoint at +2.53 PTAT, +2.03 UDC, backed by +2.96 FU Attach, ... En savoir plus...
