The first calves from the 2015 Gene Ireland beef bulls were born on farms this year. Here are some of Balinclea Iveco’s first progeny.Pictured below is one of the first heifers to be born from the Aubrac Gene Ireland bull ‘Balinclea Iveco’ VEZ

Balinclea Iveco has a replacement index of €107(5 Star) @ 48% reliability on his latest genomic proof (August 2016). Genomics has helped increase Iveco’s reliability by 26% since Iveco was first in the Gene Ireland catalogue just over 12 months ago.
