Dairy bulls used on dairy cows

Topping the list of the top 10 dairy bulls that were used on dairy cows, based on total AI handheld serves, was FR2385 (IG) Nextgen YKG Candy 593, with a total of 25,404 serves. These figures do not take into account DIY serves, so the bulls featuring on these lists could actually have a much higher usage. In second place, with 24,338 handheld serves, is FR2371 (IG) Ardragold Parker.
