graduates from the Genus ABS Cornerstone
Breeding Programme
Northside is a UK bred Comestar Outside
son, tested in the UK and debuts in the top
15 UK proven bulls with a Type Merit of
+2.4. Andrew Rutter, Genus ABS Breeding
Programme Manager says, “Combining a
Mammary score of +2.35 with good feet and
legs, Northside daughters have been creating
a stir with Cornerstone members around the
country, being heifers that catch the eye and
perform well.”
Mr Rutter continues, “Northside’s dam is
Aintree Mtoto Nugget B EX91-3E from the Nugget family, rated as one of the top breeding families
in the UK. Developed by Richard Pilkington in his Aintree herd from North Wales, this family is
rightly drawing global attention. The combination of type, strength, components and production in
one package makes them a very special opportunity. The foundation cow, Sebastian Nugget has bred
21 EX and 37 VG female descendents already, and members that have gone on to other herds have
performed excellently.”
Alongside impressive conformation traits, Northside also offers signifi cant improvements in fi tness
traits being positive for daughter fertility at +2.9 Fertility Index and adding longevity at +0.4 lifespan.
Aintree Northside was tested through Cornerstone and as such is available at an exclusive offer of
£15 to Cornerstone members.
