ABOVE RIGHT Troy’s dam, Co-op RB Freddie Tinley VG85,


has produced over 200 embryos to date and is also the dam to an exciting, young Mr Welcome Hill Tango-sired bull.


BELOW Troy’s maternal gdam, A-Elsbernd Tinker-CRI was the result of some purchased Mascol embryos.


THE SIRE: The young, genomic sire, River-Bridge Co-Op Troy, has come from a Genesis Cooperative herd


in America. The animals in these herds come from an unbiased real-world setting, which means that they have had to compete against herd mates sired by bulls of equally high genetic merit. Corry Ott of River-Bridge Holsteins is very excited about this 22-month old bull. Hailing from the world class Dellia family, he is one of the top genomic bulls available in the UK for PLI (£266). He has a great combination of average stature with outstanding udders, feet and legs with excellent health traits, daughter fertility +6.3, lifespan +0.7 and is a cell count improver (-24). Troy is also the industry’s number one Net Merit (NM) bull 12 months or older according to the Holstein USA December 2013 sire summaries.


FAMILY: Troy is a Mogul from Co-op RB Freddie Tinley VG85. The next dam is A-Elsbernd Tinker CRI-ET


by Mascol, followed by a VG87 Trent. The maternal granddam, Tinker, is the result of an embryo purchased for Genesis in 2005.


This family should impact the industry in years to come


as Troy has several maternal siblings coming by Primus RC, Skyline, Morgan, Predestine, Willpower, Yowza and Stoic.
