Keyenberg Linedancer (Pp) (Malki x Enorm x Peter) is nicely aligned, with fine feet & legs and makes him a very good option.
Linedancer possess the beautiful lineback markings and the polled gene (50% of his calves will be born polled). His outcross pedigree and frequently requested aAa-code (156) ensure that this bull can be easily used for a variety of purposes.
Linedancer’s maternal line is best described as uniquely milk rich, tall, well-built and with ease of locomotion. De Lutske’s always score high lactation values and know how to maintain this in later lactations (late maturity). Dam Lutske 8145 is perhaps the best example of this. In the first 4 lactations she realized an average lactation value of 113, while in the 5th lactation (the current list) has a lactation value of 144. She is predicted to produce more than 14,000 kg milk. The lactation values of Linedancer’s grand dam, great-grand dam and great-great-grand dam are also worth mentioning. They scored an average lactation value respectively of 120,113 and 134. Above we mentioned the outcross pedigree from Linedancer. For the sake of completeness, here are the bulls that are in the first 8 generations of his maternal line: Enorm, Peter, Donor, Lava, Feijkjes Boppe, Dutchglen Inspira, Scotty and Bill.
We can find a very appealing cow family in Linedancer’s pedigree of his sire Malki, namely the Anna Jacoba’s of the Knoef Family. This line is known for their high protein content levels and their long durability. Given that Malki’s sire Maik is also a star in terms of durability it’s not surprising that Malki scores very good for this trait. Incidentally cell count, fertility and claw health are also traits for which Malki brings strong improvements to. In terms of production (a solid plus for milk with almost neutral content) what stands out is the long late maturity and the good udders and feet & legs in terms of conformation.
