Bull Description


Sound System dominates the global proven sire rankings with his first daughter proof this April! No 1 LPI in Cananda, No 1 PFT Italy, Top 20 TPI in USA and No 12 Type UK! With over 47,000 recorded inseminations and near 9000 females born, his impact on the breeding world is set to be colossal! It isn’t often a superior Genomic sire supersedes his genomic proof – and Sound System has beaten the odds!

His pedigree is certainly something special! The Mirabell family is the result of 50 years of Italian selection with 22 generations bred on the Marzocchi farm in Montirone, Italy. His Dam is Mirabell Supersire Shana VG86, leading back to the exceptional Mirabell Leadman Salome family. His second Dam is an EX90 Shottle out of an EX90 Goldwyn. This family has over 8 generations of EX/VG cows with a line of superior production!

Customer Testimonial – Italy

“Sound System’s daughters are very wide, have great body condition and show a lot of Dairy strength throughout. They mature really well, are slightly taller than average but very well balanced. Rumps are perfect – wide and well angled! Their legs have excellent bone quality and superb locomotion. Their Udders are very well attached, wide and strong. Teats are average in length but always well centred. The production is very high, averaging 50kg per day – first calvers are no exception! All the daughters I have seen have exceptional style and I am highly satisfied.”

This no-fault sire is being used globally, so don’t miss out on using this exclusive bull in your herd! He is perfect to use on Doorman, Atwood or Goldwyn bloodlines and will be suitable for a variety of management systems.
