Cogent Supershot dominates global rankings


Cogent Supershot has become the number one available genomic sire on both major indexes in the USA and on Canada’s key breeding index.

Supershot’s release had been widely anticipated across the world and he now enters the rankings as the number one available sire in the US, making him the undisputed headline bull from the April evaluations. Contributing to the increase in his indexes are the improvements in his milk and Daughter Pregnancy Rate.

His success was not only confined to the US, as he increased his Profitable Lifetime Index (PLI) to £290, he is also the number one available bull in Canada as well as being the number two by only a point in Germany.


Helping him increase his PLI in the April evaluation is his incredible +986kgs Milk, with positive Protein and Fertility with an exceptional +0.6 for Lifespan. He combines 67.6kgs of Fat and Protein, and is also predicted to be an easy calving sire (+1.3).

However, Supershot is much more than just a production sire, and offers +2.5 Type, with moderate stature. He is expected to breed very correct progeny with added strength.


Combining some of the most sought after bloodlines in modern Holstein breeding, being a Supersire x Superstition x Shottle from the famous Patron Claire family that descends from Vir-Clar Holsteins in the US, he has a complete pedigree boasting eight generations of Very Good (VG) and Excellent (EX) dams. His dam scored VG86 within weeks of calving, and looks promising to develop further later in lactation.

As part of his first release, a maximum of 1,000 doses are currently available to order for distribution after 28 April 2014. This is the first semen available and no matings have been made before the official release, giving any breeders who invest in his semen an early opportunity to make the next global superstar.

Interest in the release of Cogent Supershot has been unprecedented in the marketplace since his figures were first released and he is now enjoying global demand in all major dairying countries.
