One of the top foot-and-leg bulls in the UK is now being offered as sexed semen.
Cogent Prestwick has one of the leading British foot-and-leg scores, and scores highly for locomotion, lifespan, body condition and production.
According to Hugh Pocock, sales and genetics manager for Cogent, by adding to their sexed line up, Cogent is providing farmers with the opportunity to breed high welfare dairy cows.
“Cogent are responding to the growing demand from both farmers and the public to stamp out welfare problems in dairy cattle. Any farmer will tell you, without good feet and legs you have no cow, and with an average 90% of pregnancies resulting in a heifer calf, there’s a further financial and ethical bonus to be gained.”
