The Ranking of Active Sires (RAS) is a list of top ranking dairy sires. Individual breeding companies nominate their highest quality sires, and the bulls are then ranked according to their Breeding Worth.
Scroll to the bottom of this page to read the minimum requirements that a bull must meet to be included on this list.
The quality of the bull team that you use each year is the single biggest driver of genetic improvement in your herd.
- Always target high BW bulls
- Check the breeding values of the bulls in your team.
If you are interested in improving certain traits, such as fertility, then it is worth double checking your team to ensure the bulls suit your individual requirements.
