The red-and-white Holstein American Ziggy Red (Jacuzzi x Finder x Jester rf) is an imposing bull. He matches exemplary conformation with an awesome pedigree. A line that combines good milk production (including high protein percentages) and very good conformation with interesting bloodlines. A striking feature is the blend of top-class genes from the black-and-white population (including the bulls Finder, Sammy and Shottle) with super genes from the red-and-white population (via Jacuzzi and Camion). All this wrapped up in cow family that has seen extreme success in recent years. Click here for more information.

One of the interesting bulls in Ziggy's pedigree is his sire Jacuzzi. This bull has an slightly unusual pedigree (Livington x Incentive) and an all-round heritability pattern in which milk production is high with positive components. He scores average for frame while his contribution to udders and legs should bring clear progress. 
In Ziggy's maternal line, the original name of Redspot was changed a few years ago. The first Karina was a Shottle daughter, whose full sister, the excellent Redspot 16, had a successful show ring career. Via Karina 4, an 86-point daughter of Karina by Sammy, we come to Ziggy’s great grand dam Karina 8 (VG 85). This Camion daughter combines good production with extremely high components (up to 4% protein). Flushing with Try resulted in progeny including the breeding bull American Lexus and full sister Karina 15 (VG 88). Just like her dam, Karina 15 (the great grand dam of Ziggy Red) achieved wonderful milking lists that showed, among other things, extremely high protein percentages. She also produced a breeding bull. This bull, American Carnival, is a full brother of Karina 32 (VG 85 and the grand dam of Ziggy Red).
