NEW FUTURE BULL: PONTOS RED

With PowerNap as his sire, Pontos not only offers a bloodline that is a little more unusual (Jetstream x Potter), he has also inherited PowerNap's extremely high production. He combines a reasonable positive for milk production with sky high component percentages. His conformation can be classed as very good, all-round and faultless. Very positive…

NEW FUTURE BULL: JACQUES

Jacobus, the sire of Jacques, typifies what all-round means.

His virtually faultless conformation transmission is proven by high scores…
