G-Stars, Fast Forward Progress

The Alta G-STARs program represents an opportunity to fast forward genetic progress on your dairy. By using this group of sires that possess the highest genetic potential of bulls sampled in the Alta Advantage® program, you can dramatically reduce the time it takes to make maximum genetic progress.




The breeding values on these bulls are based on a combination of parent and genomic information. Genomic evaluations provide a reliable estimate of a bull's merit at a very young age – reliability equal to the proof of a bull with 25 milking daughters. But combine a group of high potential G-STARs to achieve a breeding goal, and you will reach that goal with a reliability of up to 95%.


More than just bulls with genomic evaluations, all G-STARs are housed and produced in Alta's global facilities. Alta's production program has earned fertility leadership recognition proof round after proof round according to the USDA's Sire Conception Rate evaluation. So be confident in choosing Alta's G-STARs for their genetic appeal and fertility advantage.


The case for G-STARs is clear. Selected to perform in the world's most competitive Alta Advantage® testing program. High potential for genetic merit. Semen produced in Alta's collection and lab facilities that have earned an unrivalled reputation for fertility leadership.






The way Alta gathers information through the Advantage® program is so stringent. When I see a bull proof from Alta, I know it will hold up better than a proof from any other company.
