Big Super Star 30 (VG 88)
(grand-dam of Surprise rf)

Big Surprise RF (Malki x Tequila x Lightning), with aAa code 165, is another fabulous result of the breeding efforts of the Knoef family in Geesteren. His sire and dam were both born on this farm that excels in durability, and descend from two of the most successful cow families in this herd. Combining these bloodlines (Malki x the Super Star family) has already resulted in amazing individual animals in the past. A fine example is Big Superstar 146 (dam of ‘Samen’-bull Red Star), an incredibly productive Malki daughter with exemplary conformation (EX 91). This cow's late maturity in both production and conformation are among the strongest traits passed on by her, and Surprise’s, sire Malki. The late maturity trait correlates strongly with durability, as also confirmed by Malki's performance.

The maternal pedigree of red-carrier Surprise (the Super Stars) exhibits many similarities with Malki's qualities. Correct conformation (seven generations of cows rated VG or EX), high production that includes very good protein percentages and a lactation performance that progresses over time characterise this family. And that is also proven by Super Star 69, the dam of Surprise. This Tequila daughter - ranked EX- has already produced almost 110,000 kg of milk and seems to produce more with each successive lactation. Her last two lists recorded the highest lactation values (125+) she has achieved to date. Matched with Big Spell and Leonidas, she has already produced several good daughters, including Leonidas daughter Super Star 168 (heifer champion at the 2018 HHH Show). The Super Star family also thanks it fame to breeding bull Big Winner. Winner’s excellent dam, Super Star 25, is the great grand dam of both the Malki daughter Super Star 146 and Malki son Surprise mentioned above. The lifetime production of this daughter by Lucky Leo was almost 75,000 kg of milk while her excellent dam produced over 100,000 kg of milk and her 89-point scoring grand dam's tally reached almost 140,000 kg in her productive life.
