Look no further if a Red Holstein bull with an outcross pedigree, from a proven, highly successful cow family is on your wish list! Meet De Pol K&L Davy (Salvatore x Nugget x Supersire). Davy combines copious milk production transmitted by his sire (Supershot son Salvatore) with the extremely component-rich attributes of his maternal pedigree: the Altitude line. The cow family has produced a host of renowned breeding bulls.
Davy’s sire Salvatore also makes the genetics of top black-and-white bull Supershot available for the red-and-white segment. Lots of milk, very good conformation (including good udders), high scores for durability, somatic cell count and fertility and suitability for maiden heifers are traits that typify his paternal line.
Davy's maternal line also has quality in abundance, although the star feature of this pedigree in production terms is components (including several generations with more than 3.60% protein). The Altitude line (already used by K.I. SAMEN in the shape of bull Kentucky P) also offers outstanding conformation. Starting with great grand dam KHW Super Aderyn (Red Impact Cow of the Year 2018 Holstein International) this is reflected in eight generations of cows ranked excellent. Names include Durham Altitude (EX 95) and DRA August (EX 96). This cow family has branched out to cover the world and has acquired a reputation in both the male and female lines. Breeding bulls such as Jotan, Perfect Aiko, Aikman and Attico descend from this pedigree, all of whom have in turn produced great sons.
