…and this cow has destroyed the previous record by more than 140 kgs of fat! The new Fat Champion is Oceanbrae Fawn’s Accent-P, a Junior Three Year Old owned by the Barrett family of Oceanbrae Farms in Belmont, Prince Edward Island. Accent was classified Very Good 86 at three years of age.
In her 305 day second lactation, Accent produced 696 kgs of fat, eclipsing the previous record of 565 kgs of fat set by an Ontario cow several years ago. Accent produced these 696 kgs of fat by producing 9815 kgs of milk, for a fat percentage of 7.0%, a full four percent higher than the Milking Shorthorn breed average! Accent also produced 355 kgs of protein (at 3.7%), good enough for second place on the All-Time Protein leader list for Milking Shorthorn Three Year Olds. Accent’s Three Year Old BCA is an impressive 371-644-413.
Making Accent even more special is the fact that she is naturally polled. Sired by Bar-D Krause’s Fawn’s C.D., her dam is former All American Rovin Derek Ali Accent-P EX. Accent was the result of an imported embryo imported from the United States, and she has two maternal brothers who are proven AI sires. Fawn has been flushed several times and has eight daughters, including three first lactation heifers newly fresh in the Oceanbrae herd.
Milking Shorthorns are becoming increasingly recognized as an efficient dairy breed that excels in feed conversion, fertility, and productive longevity. The Canadian Milking Shorthorn Society represents Milking Shorthorn breeders across the country while promoting this red, white, and roan dairy breed to dairy producers across Canada.
