SHAWANO, Wisconsin - With the April sire summary, Cooperative Resources International (CRI) graduates four new Jersey sires.

He is +578 Cheese Merit (CM$), +103 Combined Fat and Protein (CFP) and maintains an impressive +13.6 JUI™.

1JE00928 COMANCHE, an Axis son from the Ahlem Farm Partnership, graduates to the active lineup with an exceptional +200 JPI. He adds profitability in his +1338 Milk and +501 CM$. With his pedigree (Axis x Legal x Iatola) and +17.8 JUI, COMANCHE promises to stamp standout udders on his daughters too.

Rounding out the four new sires, CRUISER's full brother 1JE00933 CORDOBA joins the lineup with a great genetic profile. He comes in at +165 JPI, +492 CM$ and +12.3 JUI. Another health trait leader, CORDOBA is +0.2 DPR and +4.8 PL.

Other highlights include 1JE00892 VANDRELL-GR continuing his domination of the genomic JPI list, this time at +255. He also leads the lineup for CM$ at +651. Sire fertility is another specialty not to be overlooked: +2.4 Sire Conception Rate and 105 PregCheck™.
