Genex Sire "Super" Option for Profitability

SHAWANO, Wis. - Genex Cooperative, Inc.'s 1HO8778 Charlesdale SUPERstition-ET *TV is a "super" option for profitability in any herd. With 53 daughters in 29 herds, SUPER debuted in the 99th percentile for Lifetime Net Merit at +$728 and +2149 TPITM.

From the "Star" family of Shawn Charles in Cochranton, Pa., this new sire transmits the strong genetics of his maternal line. The success of this family can be traced back through his dam, Charlesdale Sweet Star, VG-85, and granddam, Charlesdale KJ Sweetness-ET, VG-87, to Huntercrest Astre Swede, 2E-91, EEEEE, third dam of SUPER. This hard-working cow completed four lactations.

Breeding an all-around sire like SUPER fits with the breeding goals set by Shawn Charles - "To me, the key is breeding healthy cows that breed back." SUPER provides production, health traits and more. At +1749 PTA Milk, +6.8 Productive Life, +1.1 Daughter Pregnancy Rate and +2.69 Somatic Cell Score, SUPER lives up to those goals without a problem. His daughters also exhibit phenomenal conformation (+3.12 PTA Type) and udders evident by his strong linear scores: +3.6 fore udder attachment, +2.8 rear udder height, +2.6 rear udder width and +3.1 udder depth.

Morgan Welper, Genex Progeny Support Specialist responsible for identifying and photographing daughters in the eastern United States, reflects on the SUPER daughters she's seen. "The SUPER daughters have really been a standout bunch of cows. I have yet to see a SUPER udder I don't like. As a group, these cows have a smooth and strong fore udder attachment with a notably high and wide rear udder attachment."

"After seeing daughters of SUPER, I'm not afraid to steer anyone towards using this bull," echoed Tim Fargo, Genex Area Sales Representative from Turin, N.Y. "His daughters are all consistent, sizeable animals with a lot of dairy strength and nice udders."
