Two VG-89 bull dams at Tirsvad Holsteins!
Tirsvad Hotspot Hondo, former no. 1 in Spain
Two very impressive and important bull dams were recently pictured and classified at the Danish Tirsvad Holsteins from Søren Ernst Madsen.
Tirsvad Sniper Gambia
Tirsvad Sniper Gambia is a descendant from the Genua/Grietje family and recently scored with the maximum score for a 2-yr-old: VG-89. Gambia is now the 9th generation VG/EX in a row, of which six generations are bred by Madsen. This cow family is known for its amazing brood cows and sires, like Gambia VG-89 her maternal brother Tirsvad Match P RDC (Mission P RDC x Tirsvad Silver Giga-Star VG-87) @Masterrind and Tirsvad Fantastic (Famous x Tirsvad Massey Gaga VG-87) @RUW. Gambia VG-89 has proven to be a great bulldam herself, because her son Tirsvad Hotspot Hondo (5158 gICO) is the former no. 1 gICO sire in Spain and his full brother is Italy's no. 2 Tirsvad Hotspot Geyser P (4606 gPFT).

Pen-Col Superhero Mistral
During the Zukunft Rind Sale in 2018 Madsen & GenHotel bought the no. 1 gTPI Superhero daughter in Europe: Pen-Col Superhero Mistral (2831 gTPI & 161 gRZG at that time). Mistral her pedigree traces back to the well-known cow family of Gold-N-Oaks S Marbella VG-89 and the snow-white Gold-N-Oaks Morty Malibu EX-94. Mistral, fresh in last fall, managed to score VG-89 (max. score as a 2-yr-old) too!
Already when her genomics results came out it became clear that this Endco Superhero daughter is full of potential, especially for health traits, high fat & protein and conformation traits! Now she knows to proof this with a peak production of 50 kgs milk per day and huge components. Mistral VG-89 has >35 offspring due to successful heifer flushes, from which already five bulls made it in AI (Germany & Semex). Some of her promising daughters are ready to flush: Tirsvad K&L Riveting Magnolia (158 gRZG/ 2885 gTPI/ 313gNVI), Tirsvad K&L Riveting Mercedes (157 gRZG/ 2841 gTPI) and Tirsvad K&L Pursuit Mabelle(153 gRZG/ 2758 gTPI/ 255 gNVI). Mabelle was sold last year during the Zukunft Rind Sale to Vekis Genetics in the Netherlands.
