New releases:

Schrago Alchemy RED IMPULSE (Alchemy x Jordan x Sayso) is the best and newest daughter-proven bull out of the 2016 European and World Champion cow Suard-Red Jordan IRENE. He was able to increase his milk yield from +355kg to +550kg because of his daughters. In addition he also transmits positive fat (+0.32%) and protein (+0.07%) content. RED IMPULSE held his fitness traits with 71 daughters on an index of 114 and confirmed through this his genomic result. The first daughters from RED IMPULSE have already had some good results in the Swiss show scene, these qualities are from his great mother IRENE. Proven sires:

Plattery Destry RUSTY (Destry x Rustler x Rubens) comes from the same family as the former World Champion Savard RENITA (the family of Pickel VALENCE, Rubens GALANTE and sire INCAS). RUSTY has a breeding value for milk production of +289 kg and milk constituents (fat +0.10%, protein +0.07%), which he increased and retained since the last proof run in August. RUSTY's daughters are attractive for their splendid udders (118). RUSTY is Switzerland's top-selling daughter proven red bull.

Plattery Lucas TWIX (Lucas x Stadel x Rubens) is the half-brother of 2015 World Champion Plattery Savard RENITA and comes out from the same family as RUSTY. TWIX confirms his results with his first daughters in the second lactation. TWIX sires good milk yields with positive fat and protein content and low cell counts. But TWIX's most attractive feature is his superb conformation, special 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) He maintains his breeding values both for milk production (+1032kg) and nearly all fitness traits (IFF 108). BALTIMOR is a modern bull and sires medium-sized cows with top udders (120). BALTIMOR transmits low SCS (117) and a long longevity (111). BALTIMOR's semen is very fertile.
