Bull of the month April 2020: Antonov 435319
Anibay x Vanpari x Payssli
The bull of the month April is one of the most popular genomic bulls of the Brown Swiss breed – nationally and internationally: Antonov. The Anibay son out of a Vanpari dam, which was sold to Luxemburg as a heifer, descends from the famous show cow Vigor-Noris. This high quality of type is also reflected by his breeding values: With currently 118/109/119/128 and a final score of 126 he promises an almost perfect type. Thus, it’s no surprise that his progeny has already been successful on shows: The heifer Turetti Antonov Dorovit won the 1b price in the Junior-Class 8 to 12 month at the European Brown Swiss Championship in Verona in the beginning of February.
But Antonov isn’t only an excellent show bull: High breeding values in production and fitness traits, longevity and a high vitality index as well as the desired kappa casein and beta casein variants BB and A2/A2 make him a real all-rounder.
And the next generation is already in the starting blocks: His sons Alexey, Atlas, Aquin and Asimov will follow in the footsteps of their father: High breeding values in production and fitness traits and a fantastic type at the same time. Whether the father or the sons – this genetic should be in every barn!
