Cogent is sad to inform that the iconic bull Supershot passed away.
De Volmer DG Supershot as his name orginally was, got global fame when he got his first genomic number in the spring of 2013.
He was the first European bull in a long time to catch the number 1 GTPI and 1 Net Merrit position in the world. Until today this performance is only repeated by his son DG Charley.
Supershot was bred by de Volmer and Diamond Genetics. The dam Rose was purchased in Germany, she originated from the Tirsvad Luke Classic family. The daughters out performed the original breeding values in several countries. This lead to top places in the daughter proven rankings in several countries including the Netherlands.
OH DG Alaska reaches to +150 RZG bringing him to the no. 1 daughter proven position in Germant for Red & White Bulls. He is sharing thie position with his sire Pat Red who also has 150RZG. DG OH Alaska Red has a very special overall type score of 130RZE. OH DG Alaska Red is the Pat Red son out of an Alaska daughter out of Planet Elaine and then backed by Shottle, Comestar Leader, Prelude going back to Rainyridge Tony Beauty! The same family as the other famous DG OH bull Rubels Red. This is also the same family as the other much sought after family for Red & White of Callbret Supersire Bar band her EX-91 Delta daughter DG TM Delta Bridget EX-92.
No less then then 14 bulls have entered in the top 100 daughter proven list of Spain. Highest in the ranking is DG Sniper at the 3rd place.

If you would take the progress made in the recent years in the Black and White population because of bulls such as Superstition, Supersire and Delta it is behond imagniation. Not one breeding programm in the world does not want these bulls in their programm, every sire line up in the world is having some of these genes running trough multiple bulls in their line up, often some of the very best. Trough the excellent 91 scored Delta daughter these valuable genetics are now coming available for the Red & white population. Her daughter DG Biene is now continuing this line with maybe the most suprising black and white bulls from the last two index runs Burley. Als DG Biene is a Red carrier and trough her the valuable Burley genes will also come available fort h world wide Red & White population. She has valuable pregnancies incluing the breed leader Captain, this to also secure this top Black and White bull for future the Red & White genetics.

In the spring of 2013 Supershot git his first number going claiming the world wide number 1 Net Merit position. Now in 2020 we can say Supershot met all expectation. With over 1600 milk a 2,76 SCS and Positive DPR he still beats many of he current stars in one of these fields. He is today’s Europe’s most influential bull to have ever come to the Holstein scene.
Cogent did not only acquire Supershot but also his full brother Superstyle, now looking back a very wise decision. If we look at Superstyle his proof in the Netherlands he is leaves with 235 NVI his brother Supershot (257 NVI) in front, but looking at the production side Superstyle certainly shows impressive number resulting in 367 INET. In Germany Supershot now had 146 GRZG and also three sons (Topshot, Windmill and Estetian) in the top 10 daughter proven list! The influence and legacy of Supershot will continue trough his so many sons and grand sons.
