Re: 2002 ALL BRITAIN WINNERS


Most Holstein breeders have been breeding the north american way for a long time, but stephen remember, in the UK we have an extra challenge, we have to breed the udders correctly aswell, we're not allowed to reach for the superglue and gas!!!!! emoticon

Madaway supreme maude was also born and breed in canada. she is the only animal in the uk to recieve max points of 97 under the most recent and thoughest classification system. but having produced 110 ton of milk she looks like she could do the same again so all credit must go to her owner sammy

Re: 2002 ALL BRITAIN WINNERS


Tell you what Stephen, Canadian sired animals used to win every show. Not any more. This years champion at Royal was an Integrity. Formation has done well,Juror, Jed and Gelpro have done well. Of course Canadian animals still do well - a lovely young Storm won the National and Supreme Maud is a super cow, but the years of domination for the Canadians has gone. Look at USA and Canada. An Integrity won both Championships this year. Previous year at Madison and Toronto it was an Encore, Year before a Marshfield Elevation Tony, Year before the same Integrity. Admittedly the Canadians do well as young cows and dry cow classes (Sorry, that was unfair) but since Starbuck, nothing has come through as mature cows. Just look at results in Madison and Toronto last few years. Lilly was last I can remember. Current Champions in Germany, USA, Canada, France and UK are all Integrities.
Don't be too blinkered with your breeding Stephen and get that Mapleleaf tattoo off your your forehead. Every country has the potential to breed a great bull. They all contract, pretty well, the same cows. Most of the old Canadian big names came from USA in the first place - Inspiration, A Bridon Hill Astro Jet, A Hilltopper Warden, A Butlerview Mattador, A Conant Acres Broker, A Townson Lindy, A Carnation Counsellor, A Gilbrook Grand etc etc.(A stands for American). So did top cow families like Barbs, Mark I, Channels etc.

We must never dismiss other countries genetics. Canada still do a great job but so do USA, Italy and France, who have all bred some great bulls - even Sunny Boy from Holland was top of the LPI list for a while.

Sorry if I have been ranting. I have just come back from the pub and will probably regret writing this in the morning! People are sure to ask what I've been drinking!

Re: 2002 ALL BRITAIN WINNERS


It pays to be open minded!!!!!!!!!

We here in the UK have the advantage that we have been such a melting pot of genetics from all over the world. The animals that rise to the top deserve to be there. Fact is, we all have our favourites but they could come from just about anywhere!!!!!!!!!!
