Solid and reliable is a pretty good description of Weggelhorster Delgado's pedigree (Punch x Epic x Prince). The Dirndel line his dam is part of has often been used by K.I. SAMEN, and has done a lot to boost confidence in the performance of this cow family. Bulls including Santana and Ashburton have also earned their spores.
Sired by the American breeding bull Punch, Delgado descends from one of the most successful cow families in the USA: the Mirror line. In addition, Punch is a bull with an all-round heritability pattern in terms of both production and conformation (including a variety of widths).
The most striking qualities are probably among the secondary traits, with claw health and fertility scoring particularly well.
Delgado's maternal line (the Dirndels) is typified by reliability and longevity, which translate to high lifetime production. The cows in this line have exemplary conformation (from grand dam Dirndel 35 seven generations of VG or EX cows already). Combined with their natural great urge to produce and their persistence, the result is high lifetime production. Delgado’s extremely fertile grand dam Dirndel 35 (VG 88) already has a milk tally of almost 90,000 kg of milk and she calved again at the age of 9.09 years. Her dam Dirndel 24 (in 2007 elected winner of the cow contest in Meevelkvee trade journal) came close to smashing the barrier 100,000 kg of milk. Dirndel 24 (EX) is a half-sister of the breeding bull Santana and grand dam of Ashburton.
