Purchased at Magny Cour Show in September 2004 where he was much admired by many breeders from around the world. Sylvain has produced excellent calves in France and Ireland. Has a power packed pedigree. His dam Jacobine has produced regularly for 9 years. Jacobine is also the dam of Omnibus RVS (ISEVR 108). She is also a full sister to Liquer and a maternal sister to Galette-this being the top cow family in Jean-Marc Pacauts herd. Sylvain has the Length, Scale, Style and Muscling for the most discerning breeder.
His calves in Ireland are displaying Sylvain’s own best attributes – big with that extra body length so desirable today, correctness- standing on four good legs and his indisputable style. Probably by his daughters will Sylvain be rightly classed as a “breeders bull” – why wait any longer to use the natural and superior successor to Jupiter (breeder – Jean-Marc Pacaut). Sylvain sons and daughters have excelled at Irish and French National Charolais shows.
Sylvain semen has been used in Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, USA and throughout Europe.
