RED HOLSTEIN Swissgenetics Breeding Value Highlights April 2018

Red Impulse ANJA

Ruegruet Joyboy MINAPOLIS

New proven sires:   

Desgranges MADOX (Ladd Red x Demello x Mr. Burns) improves his production traits (+581 kg milk, +21kg fat, + 23 kg protein) after proof of the first daughters. In addition to the good indexes for functional traits, MADOX impresses in its conformation (124). Here the frame (122), rump (120) and mammary system (117) stand out in particular. MADOX sires high attached, wide silky udders with a strong median suspensory.

Proven sires:

Schrago Alchemy RED IMPULSE (Alchemy x Jordan x Sayso) is the best and newest daughter-proven bull from the 2016 European and World Champion cow Suard-Red Jordan IRENE EX96. Above all he increased his milk yield from +550 kg to +763 kg thanks to his 116 daughters. Added to this he also sires high fat (+53 kg) and protein kilograms (+28 kg). RED IMPULSE held his fitness traits on an index of 113 and confirmed through this his genome. The various daughters from RED IMPULSE have had some good results in the Swiss show scene, these qualities are from his mother IRENE.

Plattery Destry RUSTY (Destry x Rustler x Rubens) is the top-selling daughter proven red bull in Switzerland. He comes from the same family as the former World Champion Savard RENITA (the family of Pickel VALENCE, Rubens GALANTE and sire INCAS). RUSTY has been able to increase his breeding values for milk production (+221 kg) and for milk components (fat +0.14%, protein +0.09%) since the last breeding value estimate. The RUSTY daughters are appealing due to their high attached and silky udders.

Plattery Lucas TWIX (Lucas x Stadel x Rubens) is the half-brother of 2015 World Champion Plattery Savard RENITA and comes from the same family as INCAS and RUSTY. TWIX improves his breeding values with his first daughters in the second lactation. He sires good milk yields with positive fat and protein contents as well as low somatic cell scores. But TWIX's most attractive trait is his superb conformation, especially for his rump traits with 123. TWIX can be used in Red Holstein breeding, without problems, on the widespread Destry/Goldwyn bloodlines.

Flury’s Titus BALTIMOR (Titus x Talent x Caveman) improves his breeding values both for milk production (+1,121 kg milk) and nearly all fitness traits (IFF 109). BALTIMOR is a modern bull which sires medium-sized cows with very high milk yields and top udders (118). BALTIMOR also sires a low SCS (117) and a long longevity (110) to his daughters. BALTIMOR's semen is also very fertile.

New Optimis sires (genomic sires):

DREAMSON P (Apoll x Aiko x Snowman) the heterozygote polled son from APOLL, sires fantastic udders with a lot of dairy strength and perfect Feet & Legs. DREAMSON P also impresses with excellent production traits (+1,546 kg milk, +0.21% fat and +0.18% protein). With kappa-casein BB and beta-casein A2A2 he meets the criteria for the cheese logo and is therefore ideally suited for cheese dairies. His strengths in somatic cell score, longevity and easy calving make DREAMSON P an all-round complete bull.

Mr Aderyn Bigstar SHEDDEN (Bigstar x Superstition x Goldwin) impresses with strengths in all areas. Added to the good somatic cell score, longevity and fertility values are a top conformation (mammary system 128) and high yields (milk yield +1,813 kg). Therefore SHEDDEN is ideally suited for farms with a focus on pasture grazing, and through his conformation, for farms with milking robots.

Optimis (genomic sires):

Flu Farm Lst MADMAN (Integral x Joyboy x Kite) is a red son from INTEGRAL out of the famous show cow Ruegruet Joyboy MINAPOLIS EX91. He has a bloodline, which make show lovers dream because he is out of the crossing of MINAPOLIS and the half-brother of DOORMAN. MADMAN sires a good production with a remarkable fat content of +0.38%. He has good functionality with a score of 116 for fertility, a low somatic cell score (112) and a long longevity (116). He shows a great conformation with an ITP of 124. He guarantees a lot of sirloin strength (116) and big cows (119) with an excellent udder index of 119.

Tjr Pat AMNESTY (Pat x Alchemy x Durham) is a bull who is ‏impressive with his high production indexes. His breeding value for milk is over 1000 kg and he also has a positive protein content (+0.24%). In fitness traits he impresses with a low somatic cell score and longevity (136). His maternal family impresses with very high fat and protein values. Also impressive is his conformation. His grand-dam is Kamps-Hollow ALTITUDE EX95, his mother the half-sister to KHW Regiment APPLE RED EX96. AMNESTY himself has a high udder index with high, tight and silky udders.

Vinksland Addiction ATOMAR (Addiction x Aikman x Larson) sires very positive fat (+0.43%) and protein (+0.38%) contents, has k-casein BB and also offers very strong functional traits. His longevity values are 125, for fertility 127 and for SCS 118. His conformation is impressive with an udder conditioning value of 124, standing out is his strong median suspensory and the silkiness of the udder. ATOMAR is an all-round sire for good production and beautiful cows.

Villstar LORIN Z (Bigstar x Delect x Doberman) is a bull that impresses with his complete production traits. He sires +693 kg milk with high positive contents (+0.53% fat and 0.35% protein). Also outstanding is the fitness index of 130, with high somatic cell scores (118) and fertility (121). On his conformation description the top udder index (130) is noticeable. He sires high attached udders with a strong median suspensory. LORIN Z comes from the family of the famous Lylehaven LILA Z EX94, which was sold as one of the expensive cows of all time.
