The Red Holstein bull Red Ravello brings another elite, all-round product of the Anemoon family to the barns at K.I. Samen. It therefore gives us great pleasure to introduce the next rising star from this line, and what a stunning example he is! The (A2A2) bull in question is Huntje Holstein Red Ravello (Ravel x Riverboy x Fraiko), a Ravel son out of Anemoon 183, the excellent ranked, full sister of Red River.
The performance of Ravello's dam Anemoon 183 (EX 90) shows many similarities with Red River's inheritance pattern. Excellent conformation (she won a champion’s title in Laren), great production and good components characterise this cow. She also has perfect udder health (somatic cell count), a trait that is also passed on by her full brother. Many of these traits have been inherent for generations. For example, the next four generations also have super conformation (88 x 90 x 88 x 90), produce very well and yield milk with good component percentages. Red River’s high score for durability is also reflected in these cows. All four produced more than 50,000 kg of milk, and three of them produced in excess of 70,000 kg. Over the years, various bulls produced by these cows have had highly successful careers at AI organisations.
Ravello’s sire Ravel is an all-round bull of a very high calibre. Ravel contributes more to width in the frame than to height, and combines this with excellent feet and legs and correct udders. In terms of production, he transmits high milk yields with mildly positive components and faultless health traits.
