Like the great hockey player Wayne Gretzky always said, “Don't go to where the puck is but rather, see where the puck is going and go there!”  As the dairy industry develops, efficient milk production that fills the consumers’ needs will gain greater importance.  It’s not only about how much milk, or how many show winning daughters a sire produces, but it’s also important to breed to a bottom line that is consumer friendly. 

The Net Merit ($NM) Index helps with this.  $NM looks at the future prices of milk, fat and protein as well as productive life and health traits all measured using actual economic data so that you can tell the future financial impact that a particular sire will have on your herd.  However, beyond just $NM, it is also important to consider what the consumer expects.  One area that has been getting a lot of attention lately is the practice of dehorning cattle.  As consumer demand provides expanded opportunity for new markets, the trend has also moved from organic to the welfare of the animals. This is only going to increase the demand for polled animals (animals that are naturally horn free and do not require dehorning). 

Breeders looking to stay that one-step ahead should be checking out the $NM polled sires.  Leading that list is Alampco SHANOSBER PO.  His dam ALAMPCO LO SHANA MITEY RED PO VG-2YR-CAN traces back to the great GLEN DRUMMOND SPLENDOR VG-86-2YR 37*.  SHANOSBER really is the sire of the future.  His own sire De-Su Observer is already proving himself as a top genomic sire that excels in production and durability and his maternal line brings strong health and fertility traits.  Looking through his pedigree you see some of the most impactful sires in the breed.  Sires like Planet, O-Man, Goldwyn, Mitey P, Formation and Aerostar all show that SHANOSBER is bred for greatness.

With such strong maternal and paternal lines, it’s no wonder that SHANOSBER’s genomic numbers outperform his parent average for production, durability and health & fertility.  Look for SHANOSBER to sire daughters that are built to make money.  They will have outstanding mammary systems with great feet and legs. His high herd life and low somatic cell numbers, combined with his production and component numbers, make him a great sire for commercial breeders as well as forward thinking breeders who want to be in position to provide the top genetics in the future.

While we all love to look to the past and see what has worked and what hasn’t, it’s imperative  to keep one eye on the future. Sires like SHANOSBER are the sires of the future and here at TAG we are proud to bring them to you today. Shoot for tomorrow – TODAY!
