Grashoek Navajo P (Bart x Sunflower x Timeless) is a Red Holstein bull who carries the polled gene and has A2A2 for beta casein. He descends from the famous Nel line bred by the Engelen family in Grashoek. The cows from the Nel line are abundant milk producers with good conformation and have championship titles to their names. Navajo has also inherited positive points for components and super conformation from his paternal line too.
As his daughters have started lactating, his sire Bart has evolved into a solid all-rounder. This calving ease bull scores well for all production-related traits. His daughters have good width, super legs and good udders. This bull also performs perfectly when it comes to udder health, fertility and durability.
Navajo's maternal line, the Nel family, guarantees incredible milk production. In addition, all the cows in this line have outstanding and very attractive conformation. Proof of this is the championship title won by Nel 61 (EX 90), the great-great grandam of Navajo, in Wanroy. Nel 61 is also the most prominent and influential figure in this pedigree. She produced more than 90,000 kg of milk and was frequently flushed. One of the most distinguished and balanced daughters of Nel 61 is Nel 96 by Lucrative. Ranking VG 89 and with life production of over 60,000 kg milk, she is the great grand dam of Navajo. Through her Timeless daughter Nel 118 (VG 88 and with life production of 82,042 kg milk) we arrive at Nel 139, Navajo’s dam. This 91-point scoring cow already has a string of championship titles to her name. These accolades include reserve champion at the cow Expo and the HHH show in 2015, and all-round champion of the South of the Netherlands twice.
