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.
The Animal Evaluation (AE) run for January is now complete. See below for updated breeding values for AE enrolled dairy sires.
Please note: Cow AE results will be loaded onto MINDA on 20 January following the completion of LIC's genomic process.
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.
The latest Animal Evaluation run took place on 15 January 2018 (the next run is on 12 February 2018). Click here to view the full AE run schedule.
