The April 2021 breeding values have also been published in the Netherlands. In the breeding value estimation of April 2021, adjustments were made to fertility, udder health, temperament, milking speed and viability. These changes have affected the breeding values of a number of individual bulls.
The red-and-white breeding bull list has several new bulls in the top NVI. For example, Wilder Smart Red, a Delta Norbert-Red out of Wilder Smile VG-85 (Brekem RDC x Snowman), with 247 NVI, makes his debut in 3rd place. The bull, bred by the Holtkamp family, does not score extremely anywhere, but is everywhere positive in his transmitting pattern. Next debutant (with 242 NVI) is De Oosterhof Oh Dg Pat Alaska-Red, a Coyne-Farms Sympati Pat-Red son from the family of Rainyridge Tony Beauty EX-5E-Can, Grand Champion World Dairy Expo 1999. Alaska-Red is a half-brother of the dam of the successful De Oosterhof Dg Rubels-Red and has several high-scoring female relatives at De Oosterhof. Third new bull and in the top 20 proven bulls red & white is Red Rocks K&L Fireball-Red (Delta Meteor-Red x Snowman), from the Bonhill Warsi family. The bull (209 NVI), bred by Red Rocks and 3STAR Genetics, scores very well on production, udder health, fertility and legs.
The highest type bull on the CRV published bull list is Drouner Rednex-Red, who scores a phenomenal 114 Total and 115 Udder! Rednex-Red comes from the Drouner Aiko family and is a full brother of the number 1 RZG proven bull Drouner Effektiv-Red.
