09-12-2015 - The Highest PLI Young British Friesian Sire Ever Released

<<< Back to Headlines

At +£434 Inch Patrick is the highest ever parent average PLI British Friesian sire ever to be available, following his release this week by Molecare Genetics and Sterling Sires.

Patrick is also the highest young available bull for Type Merit at +1.57. A very correct, dairy black bull with plenty of length and strength, his dam is one of Northern Ireland’s pre-eminent brood cows, Inch Blackisle Daphne 2 EX92-3E who has averaged 10,090 kgs at an exceptional 5.34% BF and 3.33% Protein over 5 lactations and is on course to exceed 13,000 kgs in her 6th lactation – an ideal robust, long lived modern dairy cow. The Daphne family is renowned for transmitting exceptional components over many generations and Patrick is among the breed leaders at +0.22%BF and +0.12% Protein.
Patrick’s is sired by the breed leading fertility and component sire, Lakemead Pinnacle, who has increased his proof by over £30PLI with extra daughters in the recent proof run.

Flying the flag for British Genetics, Patrick is jointly owned by Scawfell Genetics and Wyevalley Dairy Genetics and housed at Scawfell’s EU approved facility in Cumbria.

Also recently released from the same stable and available through Molecare Genetics is Kirkby Marriott. With a parent average PLI of £237, Marriott is the No.6 PLI on the young available sire list and no. 5 on Type merit.
Marriott is a breeders’ dream – a wide, powerful bull on excellent legs and feet, his dam is one of the most exciting young members of the renowned Monica family developed by the Griffin family. Kirkby Monica 21, is one of Blackisle Benloyal’s best daughters and classified BFV86 in her second lactation whilst producing no less than 10,726 kgs – 30% above herd base – the epitomy of a world class modern British Friesian!
As the highest available young sire with no Blackisle Glen Albyn or Marshside Rocket 3 in his pedigree, Marriott is also exceptionally valuable as one of the top outcross bulls in the breed!
