7JE1038 VALENTINO is now the No. 1 lifetime sales Jersey sire at Select Sires. 

Customer-satisfaction sire 7JE1038 VALENTINO is now the No. 1 lifetime sales Jersey sire at Select Sires. Through the end of December, VALENTINO has sold 380,068 units of semen passing 7JE590 ACTION who sold 376,482 units. 

VALENTINO was bred by David Allen of Reedsburg, Wis. and is a 7JE738 LOUIE son of world-famous D&E Paramount Violet (E-90%). Violet was purchased by Allen in 2006 when he was looking for a few cows to develop and add to his herd. In January 2010, she made a splash when five of her sons were among the top-10 GJPI™ young sires with VALENTINO at the top of the list. 

After being a popular member of the Super Sampler lineup, VALENTINO graduated into the active lineup in December 2012 as the No. 5 GJPI and No. 2 Type sire. Today, VALENTINO is known as a customer-satisfaction sire around the world and maintains his position in the top-10 sires for Type at +1.8. He is also among the leading sires for Livability, ranking ninth at +3.2. In Canada, he is a top-25 LPI sire at +1603 and is the No. 8 Pro$ sire at +1392. Following the December sire summary he now has more than 10,000 daughters in nearly 2,000 herds contributing to his proof. 

“VALENTINO is truly a bull that is building a legacy in the Jersey world,” said Tim Baumgartner, Jersey genetics and marketing specialist at Select Sires Inc. “His ability to make daughters that can impress even the most discriminating breeders is amazing. They are tremendously balanced cows with udders built to last. VALENTINO is truly a living legend.”
