Already the third breeding value estimation after the change to the new, significantly safer single-step system took place on December 7th. By increasing the reliability of the estimated breeding values, major changes should be minimized.
The old and new N°1 of the Mint sons - Fitness giant MINOR
The alternatively bred BSG fitness sire MINOR (Mint x Passion) remains with 10 points distance by far the N°1 of all Mint sons. Minor brings a solid milk yield with A2A2/BB paired with excellent fitness breeding values. The udder health (130), the daughter fertility (116) and the longevity (118) are to be emphasised. The easy calving and the top feet&legsin combination with a very good udder with longer teats complete his profile. Also in conformation he improves with further daughters in muscling and udder. Only the somewhat below average milkability should be considered when mating.
MANOLO Pp* the favourite of Fleckvieh polled
MANOLO Pp is nationally and internationally popular as the best progeny tested polled Fleckvieh sire. He can further underpin his position as an exceptional polled sire of the Fleckvieh breed. With now 650 classified daughters he continues to set standards in conformation with the combination frame (117) muscling (112) feet&legs (136) and udder (112). The uncomplicated Manolo Pp daughters are convincing in daily handling on the farms. Also in the fitness traits his highlights are in the areas of longevity (121), udder health (120) as well as the very easy calvings (115) and the vital calves.

Fleckvieh Newcomer HERZTON
HERZTON (Herzschlag x Manton) comes from the well-known B-cow family of Dieter Bürger and starts with almost +1200kg milk with top 100-day performances. The Herzton daughters show a lot of depth and are pleasing with long udders which are held by a firm central ligament with optimal teat development. Herzton also inherits quick milkability (114) in combination with healthy udders (110). The good calving ease (109) also makes him interesting for heifer matings. ⇒Sire Proofs Fleckvieh HERZTON

This is not a coincidence, because in Hermelin's pedigree we find a high performance Fleckvieh cow family that is well known in breeding as well as in performance and show. In addition, they also inspire with their longevity in connection with high life performances.
WERTHEIM (Wertvoll x Watt x Reumut) also produces cows that are very willing to perform. The first 27 scored daughters please with their physical appearance. The calibre daughters have tightly atttached udders with teh desired longer teats. Also in the fitness traits milkability (113) and udder health (116) Wertheim brings clear improvements.

Homozygous polled Fleckvieh bulls
Heartbeat P*S x Vollgas P*S x Manton is the sire line of the homozygous polled young Fleckvieh bull Heartland PP*. Due to the genomic profile, we can expect creamy daughters with an excellent udder quality. Especially in udder length and udder floor Heartland PP* is convincing. The positive protein inheritance +0,06% as well as the desired A2A2 inheritance in connection with the polled gene make Heartland PP* a sought-after mating bull. The appealing calving pattern also makes a mating to heifers possible. Breeding values Heartland PP*
An extraordinary sire line with Mai P*S x Walch x Scorpion Pp* x Witam P*S can be found in the pedigree of MERCADO PP*.

Your farms and your health are very important for us, thats`s why the events planned for August, such as the Fleckvieh and Brown Swiss regulars bull presentation, will be cancelled. As we still want to provide you with the best possible information about current events in cattle breeding, we would like to take this opportunity to refer you to our new homepage, which has been equipped with many practical functions such as the search for bulls suitable for AMS. On www.besamungsstation.eu you will find under the menu item "News" current topics around cattle breeding.
Make use of the genetics potential of our high-quality, broad range of Fleckvieh genetics!
Further bulls are available on our website www.besamungsstation.eu
Since we have always a selection of bulls for our regional farmers after the sire proof run the list ist reduced. The additional list of the BSG bull can be found here:"Fleckvieh Archive"
