This Mother’s Day while we are all sending loads of love to our mothers, wives, daughters and other amazing women in our lives, we here at the Bullvine thought we would take a look at some of the most amazing females in the Holstein breed that are also having the biggest impact in the past ten years.
AITKENBRAE STARBUCK ADA EX-94 2E DOM
There are few cow families that can rival the accomplishments of the Adas when it comes to show ring success and transmitting elite type. For generations, this family has dominated the North American show circuit and, as we near the big dance on the colored shavings, there is no doubt that the next generation of Adas will be there vying for All-American titles. Ada herself was a tremendous show cow having been named Unanimous All-American Senior Three-Year-Old in 1989, but it is her brood cow status, specifically through the impact of her two Donnandale Skychief daughters, which makes her a true legend in Holstein history.
Shoremar S Alicia is the eldest of the famous Skychief daughters of Starbuck Ada. Alicia, nominated All-American five times in milking form, was the Supreme Champion of the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair in 2000. With more than a dozen excellent daughters from a variety of mating sires, it is obvious that Alicia is the Ada family’s next generation brood cow. That generation is already highlighted by her Startmore Rudolph daughter, Cityview R Alicia Excellent-92-CAN 23* or her Durham daughters BKB Abby Excellent-95 3E DOM and BKB Amanda Excellent-92 GMD DOM.
The Excellent-94 2E DOM Ms Kingstead Chief Adeen is a full sister to Alicia and has produced such names as Atwood, Atlee, Ariel and Autumn. Adeen is one of the most influential and one of the only cows in the breed with offspring over +2500 on genomics and All-American progeny. It was a flush to Maughlin Storm early in Adeen’s career that might just have been the most influential mating. It produced the Excellent-91 DOM Storm Allison, Very Good-88 DOM Storm Adeline, and Very Good-88 DOM Storm Amberlee dam of the great Durham Atlee. Since the time that she made an appearance at the International Holstein Show in 2005 Atlee has attracted worldwide interest, and Atlee’s numerous sons dominate the international type lists: Atwood, Amazing, Avalanche, Arden and Atlantic in the USA; Atticus, Attic and Aftershock in Canada, Delete in Spain and Heavenly Dreams in Italy.

DE-SU BW MARSHALL GEORGIA EX-90 GMD DOM
The daughters and granddaughters of De-Su BWM Marshall Georgia currently account for an incredible 25 of the 300 daughter proven bulls over 2000 TPI. Georgia is by far the most influential cow family impacting the current active-sire lineup. Of the 25, 12 of them are over +2.00 PTAT. That is an incredible achievement that certainly makes Georgia one of the most influential brood cows of the modern era.
The most notable of her sons is De-Su Oman Goli, who still ranks well on the Dutch proven sire list. Among Georgia’s most influential daughters are two full sisters to Goli, De-Su Oman 5121 VG-86 and De-Su Oman 6125 GP-82, as well as Shottle daughter De-Su 6822 VG-85 (Dam of Gillespy). A third full sister to Goli, Oman 6121, has become the face of De-Su, through her Planet son Observer and her Bolton grandson De-Su Gulf. Observer was the much heralded genomic sire that delivered on his high genomic rankings to debut #1 on the TPI rankings last April and now ranks in the top 10 sires that are 99% reliable.

HICKORYMEA BWOOD OSSIE P EX-91
When it comes to Polled, two herds have supplied the key bloodlines that have impacted polled breeding world-wide today. Both herds are from Pennsylvania. They are Burket-Falls and Hickorymea. Hickorymea owners Eddie Johnson and his sons Keel and Chip bred a polled Chairman son, named Hickorymea Lassiter, who became the foundation sire for Polled in their herd. A granddaughter of Lassiter by Elton scored VG-89 and became the dam of Hickorymea Bwood Ossie P EX-91. Sired by Bellwood Ossie P’s greatest impact came through her two sons Hickorymea Ottawa-P (by Hickorymea Tripod) and Hickorymea Oswald-P (by Coyne-Farms Prelude Bosco), two bulls that were the highest ranking polled sires available 8 years ago. This family is still providing some of the most exciting polled sires in the world today.
A Man-O-Man out of a Shottle from an EX Bosco (Full sister to Oswald P), now owned by Regancrest, Hickorymea MOM Opine-P VG-87 is one of the most popular non-Lawn Boy pedigrees in the world. Another exciting member of this family is Hickorymea Man Outfit-P at Lirr Farms in Wisconsin. Outfit-P is the dam of the sire Lirr Mogul Outfit-P (2335 gTPI) as well as the high homozygous sire Lirr Option-PP (1946 gTPI). Outfit-P is from a VG-86 Goldwyn and a then a VG-88 Paradox to the EX Bosco daughter of Ossie. A maternal sister to Outfit is Hickorymea Signif Ohio-PP, sired by Burket-Falls Significant-P, she is one of the highest homozygous females in the world.

KAMPS-HOLLOW ALTITUDE-ET RC CV TL EX-95 2E DOM
With high type and high index daughters and granddaughters showing up on top genomic lists, show results and sale catalogs, Altitude has certainly become one of the most influential cows of the modern era. Probably best known for her daughter KHW Regiment Apple Red – EX-96 3E DOM the “Million Dollar Cow.” Apple Red has also been able to prove herself as a brood cow. Her shining moment in the spotlight had to be at World Dairy Expo 2013 where she set new benchmarks at the top of the ladder of show ring success. While the crowd roared their approval of the final placings assigned by Judge Michael Heath, the record books took note that for the first time one special cow not only earned Reserve Grand Champion but also was flanked on each side by the Grand Champion, her clone, and, on the other side by her daughter, the Honorable Mention Grand Champion. (Read more: KHW Regiment Apple-Red – Beauty, performance, and even more record accomplishments).
Also, impressive was Apple-Red’s brother, Advent-Red who was Premier Sire of the Red and White Show. Advent is the highly acclaimed Kite son of Altitude. Without hesitation, Advent is one of the all-time greatest showring sires of the red breed whose daughters have accumulated various accolades at national and international shows worldwide. Advent has taken home numerous premier sire banners at the most prestigious shows nationwide including the Royal Winter Fair National Red and White Show and the Grand International Red and White Show at World Dairy Expo. His stats speak to the magnitude of his impact with more than 400 Excellent daughters in the United States and Canada alone and 105 All-American Nominated daughters in just the past five years. Forty-one of the 105 received the prestigious title of All-American or Reserve All-American according to the Red and White Dairy Cattle Association. Other

REGANCREST S CHASSITY EX-92 GMD DOM
Like many truly great cows Chassity puts it all together. Jeff Butler, a member of the Chassity Syndicate, describes her in winning terms,” She’s a big cow standing 63 inches, with a wide rump, hard top, a wide chest, and walks up hill. And of course she has a beautiful udder. “This comes naturally when you consider that Chassity is a sixth generation Excellent from the renowned Barbie family. (Read more: REGANCREST S CHASSITY – 2012 Golden Dam Finalist)
Chassity’s list of offspring reads like a healthy bank statement. From Goldwyn, she produced Gold Chip and Goldwyn Cash. Cash went on to make Cashmoney, Cashcoin, Colt 45, Cash-O, and Casher! With these offspring, Chassity is definitely in the money and, while she`s unforgettable for her exceptional 1.5 million dollar selling price at Intrigue in August 2009, her financial story didn`t stop there. In the Destination Vegas Sale, in December of the same year, her daughter MS Chassity Goldwyn Cash was the world’s top-selling individual, being purchased for $205,000. At the World Classic Sale in Madison a Planet daughter, MS Courtlane UR-S Candy VG85, sold to Regancrest. Earlier in the summer a Domain granddaughter of Chassity, sold for a high price through the Skyline Holstein Sale in Germany. She sold to Koepon. Chassity’s name continues to be a guaranteed bank machine at sales worldwide.
Chassity has 154 progeny, from 37 different sires, setting new records and earning breed leading numbers of their own, especially for type. According to her current owners “the largest demand these days is driven by the progeny of Chassity’s Goldwyn daughter Cash and Chassity`s Snowman Daughters.” Courtlane UR Chassity, the 8th generation EX was Chassity’s first EX daughter! She is the dam of Chester (by AltaIoata +2236 gTPI) and Cameron (by Jeeves +2214 gTPI). MS Chassity PLN Chaching VG86 2yrs is Chassity’s Planet daughter and the dam of MR Chaching Centric (by Numero Uno +2362 gTPI). Her daughter MS Chassity Goldwyn Cash VG87 2yr gLPI +2816 has a record of 2-04 (305D) 15,491kg milk, 4.1F and 3.2P. She has two Observer sons – Cashcoin +2358 gTPI and Cashmoney +2299 gTPI.
In cattle breeding, it takes progeny to continue making money and at Butlerview they report that “Chassity is a great embryo producer and so are her daughters” (Read more: Exciting Times for Butlerview and BUTLERVIEW: The Goals are Simple. The Genetics are Exceptional)

WESSWOOD-HC RUDY MISSY EX-92 3E GMD DOM
For more than 10 years Rudy Missy has been producing elite genetics and leading the pack in reliability and health traits. Today, with names like Shauna, Supersire, Chart Topper, Mogul, Oak and Sid. It is hard to deny the impact of America’s favorite Rudolph daughter. Backed by an Excellent-90 GMD DOM Elton and three more “Very Good” generations, Wesswood-HC Rudy Missy quickly became a worldwide star. The family traits shine through in high production, superb protein pounds and simply being cattle that your average farmer likes. Good strength, wide rear udders, mobile feet and legs.
Thirty-nine direct daughters of Rudy Missy have scored Very Good or Excellent over the years, and her brood cow status has become undeniable. All seven females from the flush to O-Man scored Very Good and can be credited with developing the bloodlines for Shauna, Supersire, Chart Topper, Mogul and AltaOak. Pine-Tree Missy Martha VG-86-2YR DOM is probably the most notable daughter of this flush and is the dam of Shottle Martha Sheen Very Good-86 DOM. Ammon-Peachey Shauna Very Good-87 DOM is undoubtedly the best daughter to date from Martha Sheen, especially when you consider the large number of bulls she has put into A.I. Sired by Planet, Shauna exudes dairyness and strength similar to her Shottle dam. Shauna ranked #4 gTPI female in the August 2009 release and was quickly contracted for sons by Robust, which resulted in the high genomic sons Supersire and Headliner. Shauna’s Freddie sons, Sargent and Shaw, as well as Snowman sons, Diamond and Platinum, also rank high.

Mountfield SSI Dcy Mogul debuted at No. 2 on Holstein Association USA’s Top 100 TPI Genomic Young Bulls list in December 2011. Mogul and full brother Mixer are the Dorcy grandsons of Pine-Tree Missy Miranda, Very Good-86 DOM, the full sister to Martha, and daughter of Missy. Miranda is also the dam of the former No. 1 GTPI daughter in the United States, De-Su 199 Chart Topper who was sired by De-Su Watson.

The Bullvine Bottom Line
From Polled, Red & White, Type and Genomics, these 7 cows and their descendants are having the biggest impact on the Holstein breed. While there are certainly some bloodlines from the past, such as: Roxy; Dellia; and Laurie Sheik; that have had a huge impact; these seven are the bloodlines that are having the biggest influence in today’s modern dairy breeding era.
