BREEDERS ACHIEVEMENTS Poltreworgey America 44 EX90 LP100


By Ball Ebony Heldstar, a Cogent test bull at the time, Poltreworgey America 44 was a cow not really noticed until 90 tons. She quietly performed in a predominately grass fed herd that grazes for eight months of the year. This is very much a forage based herd – no maize fed. She being the granddaughter of Corniche America VG88 30* imported from France in 1990 by our group ‘Cornish Genetics’ being H H Rowe (Romax), J K Cardell (Trythance), J Lawton (Lawtonian) and the Hawken family (Poltreworgey). We paid £6,600.00. She traces to the Brenda family. Through embryo transfer, she produced 240 embryos by different bulls, with a small fl ush being 15 embryos. At that time she was one of the best fl ush cows in this country; an exceptional fertile family. I have also registered 164 descendents of Corniche America to date from a 25% share.


John Hawken, Poltreworgey Tannockhill Grace 43 VG86 SP LP100 Grace 43 completed 100 tons half way through her ninth lactation and became the second daughter of Tannockhill Grace


22 EX93(5E) SP LP100 8* to do so after her Gillette Carlton sister. Tannockhill Grace 32 EX90(3E) SP LP120 2* is sired by Skychief. She fortunately inherited her dam’s feet and legs and this combined with a low cell count for all her lactations, enabled her to yield over 100 tons. Another EX sister by Rudolph previously yielded 86 tons whilst the youngest sister, a 93 point Jordan daughter, currently sits at over 60 tons in her sixth lactation, giving four sisters a current lifetime yield of 370 tons in 32 lactations.
