Guido (Bagolino x Talent x Goldwyn) a well-developed, wide-bodied bull comes with strong conformation credentials. His paternal and maternal lines both show an impeccable performance for conformation. Rated A2A2 and with an aAa-code of 513, Guido would seem to be a great bull to use to add more width and dairy type to cows that need a corrective boost.
Guido has definitely inherited these balanced traits from his sire Bagolino. This bull, rated an aAa-code of 156, has a pedigree (Jeeves x Stormatic x Patron) with a very low level of kinship. Bagolino tends more to pass on great conformation than high production. The conformation traits he transmits to his offspring are outstanding and include notable, sloping rumps.
Guido's maternal line (the Guurtjes) also has clearly plenty to offer in terms of conformation. They also perform well in production (including good protein percentages) and reach strong lifetime production figures (including 115,000 kg of milk by an 88-point Bonatus daughter while a 87-point ranked Othello daughter produced 122,000 kg of milk). The Guurtjes also shine in the conformation stakes. One of the true stars of this line is Guurtje 253 (the great grand dam of Guido), an excellent ranked Starleader out of Stardom daughter Guurtje 247 (EX 90). Guurtje 253 is dam to numerous impressive cows, including an excellent ranked daughter by Stormatic (110,000 kg milk), who won the lifetime production class for three successive years. Flushing Guurtje 253 with Goldwyn also turned out to be a very successful pairing. The results included Goldwyn daughters Guurtje 270 (VG 88), Guurtje 280 (EX 90) and Guurtje 255 (EX 92). The latter is Guido's grand dam. Guurtje 255 has continued the family tradition by producing top rate daughters. The list includes an excellent daughter by Aftershock and Talent daughter Guurtje 286 (one of three full sisters, and Guido's dam).
