Sahara Baloo's dam raised to VG88

At a figure of +3.11, Mogul son Sahara Baloo is Cogent's highest available ExcelGen sire for Mammary. With a Type Merit of +3.58 he is also the second highest overall Type sire in the line-up. His dam Sahara Sky was recently raised to VG88 in her second lactation.

Sahara Baloo's dam, Man-o-man daughter Sahara Sky, shows all the signs of growing into a fantastic brood cow. As a two-year-old she was classified VG86 and completed a lactation of 9,232kgs of milk at 4.40% fat and 3.63% protein in 305 days. Last month she was raised to VG88 as a three-year-old with a score of VG89 for Legs & Feet and VG87 for Mammary.

Sky's dam is the former #4 CTPI cow of the breed, UFM­Dubs Sheray EX90 USA (EX MS), who produced nearly 12,000kgs of milk at exceptional fat and protein levels as a heifer. Her granddam UFM­Dubs Eroy VG87, was also a tremendous producer, and has bred over 20 VG or EX daughters in the US alone.
