Osnabrueck Holstein sires - great stayability once again

Interbull evaluation – April 2012

Despite the annual base change the April proofs of the Osnabrueck Holstein bulls present a great stayability. Additionally the evaluation model for paternal and maternal calving ease was modified.

SHANDAR remains further on Germany’s # 1 daughter proven Shottle son with RZG 138 as well as highest available production improver with RZM 143. As the # 1 German Holstein sire within the Top 100 daughter proven bulls for the body traits (130) he is really a bull, that gives his long-lasting daughters the power to produce their milk really easily in firmly attached, high rear udders. Milk robots will also like the long, not too close placed teats. Shandar is one of Germany’s best fertility bulls as well.

Also Germany’s # 2 Shottle son BG ET (abroad also named ’DT Benito’ or ’Double Dutch DT Benito’) holds his total index with RZG 137. He was tested by OHG partner organisation Bos-Genetic and ranks in Hungary by far on the 1st place. His daughters impress by their outstanding conformation (RZE 123) and production (RZM 131). His high value for herdlife will surprise all, who notice his poor value for milking speed and who not know, that Hungary has no official measuring system. With Mtoto on the male and female side in his pedigree, BG ET will get his chance to increase the value therefore not before his first daughters will calve in Germany. The owners of the milking daughters are satisfied at all. BG ET (DT BENITO) is actually the #2 also in France.

A correction bull for too close teat placement is ORSON. Due to his pedigree O-Man x Ramos he impresses additionally by his tremendous values for production, Udder health, longevity, daughter fertility and his hih values for all calving traits (paternal and maternal).

WIZZARD belongs to the Top 4 second crop sires in Germany further on. The Wizzard daughters are trouble free cows very easy to work with due to their positive daughter fertility, milking speed and calving ease. Well-known is also the tremendous semen fertility of Wizzard. He is also one of the highest total production bulls for combined fat & protein (+ 145 kg) worldwide.

GOLDINO is one of the most heavily used sires in the Osnabrueck Holstein breeding population due to his complete breeding profile. This daughter proven Goldwyn son, who originates from one of the most popular cow families in Germany with four generations in the row successfully proven at the Osnabrueck bull dam testing station and also at shows, seems to be a perfect allround sire – with positive values for all traits:
