1 K.I.-SAMEN Grashoek NL Daughter Proven April 2018 Welcome to the April 2018 Red & White Holstein-Friesian daughter proven Sire line up which has been carefully selected by Cattle Genie Limited from our supplier KI-SAMEN'S available bulls. Criteria for selection has been in response to the request from many British dairy farmer's for Cattle Genie to offer the following: * Provide Sires with high component levels of Fat % and especially Protein % * Proven longevity from selected cow families and the use of proven bulls and dams for mating programme. KI-SAMEN have those bulls available for you, in fact their bulls have for a number of years now filled the top positions in the Dutch Sire list for longevity in Holland. * Commercial cattle breeders tell us they do not want " show type" cattle, the fashion over the years for tall angular cows are now well recognised as the main reason for reduced longevity. Cows that have width through the body and are capable of using cubicles and most importantly they can walk! * Cows that are bred to utilise grass and grass silage as part of their main diet * You like the fact KI-SAMEN guarantee at least 20 Million semen cells in every conventional straw! * The bulls chosen by Cattle Genie are free of genetic defects including C.V.M. BLAD & Brachyspina ( by- ). Above is the Dutch R&W Holstein-Friesian base cow figures for production, it is a 3 lactation average each being 300 days in length. On the next page is a summary of the bulls productions calculated from this base as of April 2018.

2 RED & WHITE HOLSTEIN-FRIESIAN PROVEN BULLS PRODUCTIONS NAME OF SIRE MILK Kg FAT% PROTEIN% RELIABILITY TIMELESS Pp 9, % FLOYD 7, % TACKLEBERRY 7, % CAMPARI 6, % OUTLAW 8, % ERAGON Pp 7, % LADY LOVER 7, % CROSSFIRE 7, % J & G MALANDO 8, % RED GINSTRO 7, % Dutch proofs are quite easy to understand with100 being the base average. Stature for example is measured as taller being above 100 and smaller is less than 100. Dutch proofs have the 100 average as slightly smaller than the U.K. average of 0 ( zero).the difference is around 5 cm. Dutch proofs are more critical with the trait "rump angle" or "pin settings" and therefore the base cow figure of 100 on the Dutch proof is equivalent to having Low Pins on the U.K. proof score. This in turn would mean a Dutch Holstein proof measurement showing 97 ( high rump angle) is in fact equal to 0 ( zero) mid-line average on the U.K. proof scale. You will find displayed on the bull proofs a 6 digit code aaa which some of you may be familiar with. For those that are not we would like to point out that a full explanation of what the codes mean is available on this website under "Further Info " tab a video is also displayed and we hope you will find this of interest. KI-SAMEN have for many years fully utilised this simple and cost effective method of breeding balanced bulls and cows, if you are buying semen from elsewhere it is most likely these codes are displayed on the sire proofs too as aaa " WEEKS "are totally un biased and independent.
