Lucius - highest type sexed bull
Hilmar CVC Starr 37 51.4 82.9 / 81.5
Dairy Daughters has entered the race to provide the best bulls as sexed semen with the highest type sexed bull on the market. Savage-
Leigh Lucius, whose remarkable 3.26 score for Type Merit reflects a linear type profile which will appeal to a broad cross-section of dairy
farmers. Particularly impressive udder traits (udder composite 3.02) combined with great legs and feet (2.13) and body traits which are
not extreme in any way – neither too tall or angular, nor too coarse, and with close-to-average stature.Production is also good in Lucius
daughters (his PTA milk is 468kg), yet he also brings lifespan improvement and cell count reductions. He is a Comestar Outside son, out
of an EX91 Aaron daughter
