Here they come – the Elite December Super Samplers!
Anticipation runs high before each new proof round, as breeders and industry personnel alike, await the official new numbers and finalized marketing lists. As a bonus this time, All West/Select Sires got some early information about a new group of breed-leading young bulls.
Busting out of the chute on December 6 will be eight new ELITE SUPER SAMPLERS being released for the first time!
Available as “sexed only” Super Samplers are:
OCD Spring Samuri-ET is an Altaspring son from OCD Supersire 9882 and then ODC Robust Shimmer (EX-90, EX-MS, DOM). This branch of the Shana family continues to churn out extremely high component, high type and high GTPI offspring and SAMURI is no exception. This A2A2 young bull is +2795 GTPI, with high components at +.16F and +.07P. Not surprising, his +1.84T is highlighted by +2.27 fore udder attachment; +2.62 rear udder height; and +2.41 rear udder width.
What’s better than one Altaspring from OCD’s most well-known Supersire? Two! SLAMDUNK is a full brother to SAMURI who also has high components (+.11F +.03P), as well a similarly exceptional mammary traits (+2.31UDC).
