Our large group of new graduates provides numerous options for tremendous sires from alternative blood lines to fit the breeding goals of our worldwide customer base.


Our breed-leading Baxter sonBakombre Bakombre from the Markwell Blackstar Raven family remained in the German Top 5 for RZG (#4) with outstanding proof levels for production and type while adding 748 (!) new daughters for production and 169 daughters for type (RZG 140, RZE 121, 2122 TPI, 2,10 PTAT).

The newcomer to be named first is Jucator Jucator, who gave an excellent debut as #9 of the German Top 10 proven sires at a Total Merit index of RZG 138. With his outstanding proof for milk production along with functional type and good fitness traits he also ranks extremely high on US base at TPI 2173 (PTAT, 1,58). Juca-
tor offers with Jeeves x Buckeye x Titanic x Rudolph an outcross pedigree hailing back to Braedale Gypsy Grand VG-88, the former Global Cow of the year from Canada. His daughters are of medium-size with sufficient strength & power and are built to last under all kind of management systems.

Particularly noteworthy among the MASTERRIND group of Top ranking Planet sons (Planty (#6), Planay , Planay (#18),Pikeur (#39) is PIONEER PIONEER (Planet x Shottle x Durham) since he was popular as a genomic young sire and used as sire of sons within the MASTERRIND breeding program.
