Holstein New Graduates

The December sire summaries resulted in some very nice additions to each of our proven product lines.


Seven new Holstein bulls joined the active lineup, four of which were added to Select Sires' lineup, two to the Accelerated Genetics product line and one to the GenerVations lineup. This class of graduates offers a nice diversity of new sire stacks and specialists of various market segments.


7HO12344 RAGER-RED added a lot of data and will be, by far, the highest proven GTPIĀ® and NM$ Red bull in the breed. We added a big Type sire in 7HO12395 SATURN at +3.26 PTAT and +1.6 DPR. Highcomponent sires with good fitness traits top off this graduating class.
