Vanvalley Epic Siiri Is 2022 BC Holstein Cow of the Year


The BC Holstein Association has just made the announcement that Vanvalley Epic Siiri EX-90-2E-CAN 5* has been selected as the winner of the 2022 British Columbia Cow of the Year award. Siiri was the pinnacle of utility, and it all started with her breeding in Duncan, British Columbia, with Ben Van Boven and his family. She had a lifetime production of 173,875 litres of milk (383,325 lbs), with a top record of 17,105 kg 616 kg 3.6% f 482 kg 2.9%p in 365d days at 13-01 (37,710 M 1358 F 1063 P) and a BCA of 316-309-277. In addition, she had a top record of 17,105 kg 616 kg 3.6% f 482 kg 2.9%p in 365d days at 13-01

Her first baby was a boy, but after that, she gave birth to a total of 12 healthy female calves. Her nine daughters have all been categorised as Good Plus or better, with three receiving a score of VG-88 and two more receiving a score of VG-85. She still has two more heifers that need to give birth, and as her offspring continue to add lactations and categories, she should be eligible for additional brood cow stars.
At the moment, one third of the VanValley herd is made up of Siiri’s offspring. Congratulations to Ben and Margie VanBoven, as well as Matt and Darbi VanBoven, on winning the BC Cow of the Year competition for 2022!
