About Weggelhorster Bucketlist

Weggelhorster Bucketlist (Bernell x Maik x Stylist) is exemplary of what makes a "Samen" bull. To start with, he descends from the very popular K.I. Samen Dirndel pedigree, a line with very good conformation, high lifetime production and good health traits. His pedigree purely consists of reliable, proven breeding bulls. A number of them have also shown their worth as highly successful bull sires. A2A2l Bucketlist himself also has wonderful conformation that includes attractive markings.

Bucketlist’s sire, Bernell, has evolved over the years into a high calibre breeding bull. He is a calving ease bull who passes on high milk production, thanks to traits that include outstanding persistency, with positive scores for protein percentages. Bernell’s daughters are of average stature and offer perfect rumps. Solid udders and correct legs (slightly curved side view rear legs) round this picture off nicely. The fact that Bernell also offers extremely good health traits has made him one of the most all-round bull sires of recent years.

With the Dirndel family in his lineage, Bucketlist has a maternal pedigree with very good conformation (eight generations of VG or EX cows) and high lifetime production. Some of the illustrious names in this pedigree are the EX Dirndel 27 (Bucketlist's great grand dam) and EX Dirndel 24 (great great grand dam of Bucketlist). Advance daughter Dirndel 24 is a half-sister of the widely used outcross bull Santana. Both Dirndel 24 and Dirndel 27 realised high life production, with Dirndel 24 producing almost 100,000 kg of milk and Dirndel 27 almost 70,000 kg. Bucketlist's grand dam Dirndel 31 joins the ranks of these productive ladies with ease, as she also noted a total of almost 70,000 kg of milk. But, of course, there can always be a name that goes a step further. The top dog - or in this case, cow - is Dirndel 51, the dam of Bucketlist. This amazingly sound Maik daughter has already passed the total of 110,000 kg of milk.
