The EBI of the latest crop of bulls for the Gene Ireland programme has broken the €300 mark for the first time.

The four highest ranking genomically tested bulls all have EBIs of more than €300, with the highest ranked bull, Ballykinash KXV Lad, scoring €312.

While all the top bulls score highly on fertility, with indexes of more than €200 in many cases, breeding experts are advising farmers to heed the lower production sub-indexes of some of the top-ranking bulls.
