Cogent is sad to inform that the iconic bull Supershot passed away.

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.
