BRADNICK and GOLD CHIP Pass Committee for New Scores

At nearly 10-years-old, 7HO10999 Regancrest-GV S BRADNICK-ET and 7HO10920 Mr Chassity GOLD CHIP-ET earned higher classification scores from a committee of Holstein Association USA classifiers last week. BRADNICK, now Excellent (96), and GOLD CHIP, now Excellent (95), have been long-time favorites in Select Sires’ Showcase Selections lineup.

Known for siring show-stopping daughters around the globe, BRADNICK (+2.47 PTAT, +2.68 UDC, +2.47 FLC) and GOLD CHIP (+2.31 PTAT, +2.22 UDC, +1.80 FLC) are extremely popular with high-Type enthusiasts.

“We have been blessed with many high-scoring bulls in Select Sires’ history but BRADNICK is an extraordinary individual and a true customer-satisfaction sire. He sires daughters with great balance and a will to milk,” says Kevin Jorgensen, senior sire analyst.

BRADNICK was bred by Regancrest Farm and Todd and Brad Groves of Waukon, Iowa. He is a 7HO8190 SANCHEZ son of Regancrest Breya-ET (EX-90-EX-MS-GMD-DOM). His second dam is none other than Regancrest-Pr Barbie-ET (EX-92-EX-MS-GMD-DOM) and the next six dams are all Excellent or Very Good.

“Like his daughters, GOLD CHIP continues to develop into an amazingly stylish individual and looks half his age—such a youthful bull at nearly 10-years-old. Few sires have brought home more champion banners than GOLD CHIP,” says Jorgensen.

GOLD CHIP was bred by Ernest W. Kueffner and David R. Dyment of Boonsboro, Md. He is a Goldwyn son of Regancrest S Chassity-ET (EX-92-EX-MS-GMD-DOM) and another descendent of the famed Regancrest-Pr Barbie-ET (EX-92-EX-MS-GMD-DOM).

“Both BRADNICK and GOLD CHIP embody Select Sires’ belief in great cow families and its value in genetic development. We’re honored to work with the breed’s greatest cow families and the exceptional breeders that have created them,” says Jeff Ziegler, vice president of dairy cattle breeding.

MilkSource Scores Three EX-97 Cows in Three Different Breeds

Northeast Wisconsin’s MilkSource Genetics has achieved an unprecedented Triple Crown.

With the upgrading of Weeks Dundee Anika to the rare EX-97 classification, the family-owned show barn has reached the pinnacle score with cows from three major show breeds.

In 2014, the farm’s Blondin Redman Seisme became the first Red & White Holstein cow to achieve the milestone rating.

In February, another MSG cow, Musqie Iatola Martha, became the youngest Jersey in history to achieve the 97 score.

Now, Holstein Association USA has bestowed the landmark classification to Weeks Dundee Anika — a black-and-white Holstein.

“When Martha reached EX-97, I described it as ‘lighting striking twice.’ It was unforgettable,” said John Vosters, MilkSource Genetics partner. “But doing it again? There simply aren’t words to describe it.”

It is believed there are fewer than six cows living in North America with EX-97 scores and MilkSource Genetics is home to three of them.

MilkSource Genetics Partner Jim Ostrom notes the milestone moment solidifies Anika’s global reputation. “She is an impeccably proportioned mature cow,” he said. “Anika, now almost 8 years old, was a good cow when we bought her as a Junior 2-year-old and, since then, she has continued developing beautifully.

“Of all the cows we’ve been part of, she has been an industry favorite among people we respect as passionate cow enthusiasts. Anika is a rare animal with fans worldwide.”

Classification is based on a true-type scoring system. Anika — like Seisme and Martha before her — is as close to the ideal standards as possible. “Anika has a striking dairy frame like few others in the breed,” Vosters explained. “Her combination of dairyness, balance and strength makes her very unique. She has correct feet and legs, along with a firmly attached udder. She has had five offspring and is considered an aged cow.”

Bolstering her success, Anika also has transmitted her winning ways to offspring that have already begun making their mark in the show ring. For instance, Anika’s granddaughter, Milksource Dempsey Amour, just returned from the 2018 Wisconsin State Holstein Show as the Honorable Mention Junior Champion and 1st Place Fall Calf.

“Anika’s not only cemented her own legacy, but she’s passing on those great diary genetics to future generations,” Ostrom said.

Basking in her herdmate’s glow is another MilkSource Genetics’ cow, TK-Plainview-Ripley, which saw her own classification climb to EX-96 just days after being named Grand Champion of the State Show.

“Whether in the show ring or in the barn, cows don’t achieve results like this without the hands-on care and dedication of a great herd team,” Ostrom said. “Our manager Eddie Bue, his wife and partner-in-cow-care, Mandi, and their entire team work hard every day to bring out the best in these amazing animals. Their love for these cows is evident every day.”

Michard Escale first EX 97 in France Ever

In early February, Michard Escale was the first cow in the French classification history to obtain the global score EX 97. Classified by Didier Thareau, classificator at Prim’Holstein France, working in Côtes-d’Armor (Brittany), this cow in 6th lactation is owned by Gaec Michard (22). A score that many thought unreachable.

Currently there are 1472 cows still alive to have obtained an EX global score in France. A figure that increases from year to year.

To tell the truth, there are 1471 cows to be divided from the EX90 to EX96 score, and only one cow, Michard Escale (Damion x Jenus) belonging to Gaec Michard (22), has just been awarded February and for the first time in Prim’Holstein History, the outstanding score of EX97.

Musqie Iatola Martha became the youngest cow to score EX-97

At 6, Martha became the youngest cow — of any breed — to achieve a score of EX-97.

Musqie Iatola Martha – owned by MilkSource Genetics – is just the seventh Jersey in history to receive a EX 97 score from the American Jersey Cattle Association.  Martha became the youngest cow — of any breed — to achieve that score.

“I have said it before and I’ll say again, Martha is a ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ cow. I could spend the rest of my life trying to find an animal as amazing as her, and I wouldn’t succeed,” said Jim Ostrom, a partner in MilkSource Genetics, which co-owns Martha with Guatemalan businessman Fernando Jarquin.

Musqie Iatola Martha – owned by MilkSource Genetics – is just the seventh Jersey in history to receive a EX 97 score from the American Jersey Cattle Association.

The decision culminates a historic, three-year run in international show cow competitions during which Martha was named a three-time consecutive Royal Agricultural Winter Fair Supreme Champion, two time World Dairy Expo Reserve Supreme Champion and WDE Supreme Champion.

In 2014, MilkSource Genetics made history when another cow — Blondin Redman Seisme — became the first Red & White Holstein cow ever to achieve an EX-97 score. “It’s unbelievably rare and just as spectacular,” said MSG Partner John Vosters. “This feels like lightning striking twice.”

In recent years, more than 10,000 guests — including visitors from every continent except Antarctica — visited MilkSource Genetics with the intention of seeing Martha in person. Her international reputation has earned her the nickname “The People’s Champion.” “This score reflects the professionalism and personal passion of MilkSource Genetics Herd Manager Eddie Bue, his wife and partner-in-cow-care, Mandi, and their entire team,” Ostrom said. “It is a privilege to work with them.”

To put Martha’s achievement into more accessible terms, she is to show cows what Hank Aaron was to baseball and Secretariat was to horse racing. “Simply stated, one of the best ever,” Vosters said.

Her career highlights include:

  • Supreme Champion, Royal Winter Fair, 2017
  • 1st Mature Cow, Senior Champion & Grand Champion, Royal Winter Fair Jersey Show, 2017
  • Reserve Supreme Champion, World Dairy Expo, 2017
  • 1st Aged Cow, Senior Champion & Grand Champion, International Jersey Show, 2017
  • 1st Aged Cow, Senior Champion of Open Show, Grand Champion & Best Udder of Show, WI State Jersey Show, 2017
  • Unanimous All-American Five-Year-Old, 2016
  • Unanimous All-Canadian Five-Year-Old, 2016
  • Supreme Champion Female, Royal Winter Fair, 2016
  • 1st Five-Year-Old & BU, Senior Champion, Grand Champion, Royal Winter Fair Jersey Show, 2016

Kings-Ransom Mg Cleavage-ET recently scored EX-95 for owner Jeff King of Kings-Ransom Farm, NY. She is the highest scored Mogul daughter and completes 10 generations of Excellent Roxys.

“She’s been game-changer for us and has really built a fan base for us,” commented Jeff King. “She was an early Mogul and was heavily advertised by both Select Sires and us and in turn has become well-known around the world. She’s opened the door to a lot of new relationships and customers and has just been lot of fun to work. We have a number of offspring from her on the farm and her older daughters just starting to calve in.” Jeff concluded, “We are just ecstatic with how her entire family has developed and are excited for the future.”
