Tichel Quintana (Pp) (Miller-P x Stonewall x Jorryn) is a balanced, dairy type (aAa 513) who comes with a pedigree with roots in the USA on both the paternal and maternal sides. His sire's pedigree brings qualities that give extra milk production, while the basis of his dam's contribution is good components (incl. protein). In addition, Quintana has inherited the A2A2-variant for beta-casein from both lines and the polled gene from his sire Miller-P (50% of the offspring will be born polled).
Quintana’s sire Miller-P has a family tree that notes one of the most outstanding cow families in the USA: Seagull-Bay Oman Mirror. Bulls like Mystic, Morgan, Midnight, Mayflower, Modesto and very recently Jedi are all products of this pedigree. Each and every one an incredible bull who offers traits including sky high scores for milk and longevity. Miller-P can join these ranks with ease, as evidenced by his breeding values (which are now based on his productive daughters). Miller-P transmits a lot of milk and good, all-round conformation. He also scores well on secondary traits (somatic cell count, fertility and durability).
The origin of Quintana's maternal line is the USA. The Quarrel family has very good conformation (10 generations rating VG or EX) and outstanding production figures. One of these excellent cows is Blackstar daughter Quarrel, the cow it all started with in the Netherlands. However, the most influential animal in this line is Quarrel 11 (VG 87), Quintana's grand dam. She noted milk production of more than 85,000 kg that averaged 3.60% protein (in 305 days) and an average lactation value over all lactations of 115. Flushing Quarrel 11 with Twist resulted in six exceptionally productive daughters (with average scores over all recorded lactations of 112 LV and 3.66% protein) and an average rating for conformation of 84. Three daughters and a true calving ease bull Proven bull Hacker were obtained from a second flush with Stonewall. The three full sisters have an average score for conformation of 85, an average lactation value of 110 and an average protein content (in 305 days) of 3.70%. One of these three full sisters is Quarrel 25, Quintana's dam and also dam of Titanium son Quashqai, who has already been used by K.I. SAMEN.
