Hedra Holsteins dominated the showring at UFF Winter Show
Hedra Sneeker 721 P RDC EX-91
Six dairy cows from Vernooij represented their high-quality herd last weekend during the UFF Winter Show. There was success in every category which highlighted the quality of Hedra Holsteins' breeding results.
The deep black coloured Delta Jacuzzi-Red daughter Delta Elzzi RDC VG-87, which calved in May 2022, was still in such good show condition that she managed to achieve a 2nd position in the 2nd 2-yr-old category. Fourth dam is the well-known Weelder Esmonique 38 VG-85, dam of, among others, progeny proven Weelder Esperanto. Elzzi RDC is currently pregnant with Cheese RF and is predicted at 11,211 kg of Milk with 4.48% fat and 3.58% protein. The champion title eventually went to Walnutlawn Sidekick daughter Becel 69 of Mts J. & A. v. Ginkel-Iglesias which won the youngest junior 2-ye-old class. In this same class we also found R&B AM Maryam Red from Roubos Holsteins & Batouwe Holsteins as a great participant. She is a Kcck Amaretto Red from ViG My Love Red VG-86 and comes from the cow family of RH Talent Maxima EX-94. ViG My Love Red was purchased as a calf on the Vost Select Sale.

In the second class of the intermediate class, Vernooij won the class with Hedra Riedel 919 VG-87, the maternal-sister of bulls Delta Reloader & Delta Concert. The second position was achieved by Massia offspring Hedra Massia 1127 VG-88, a second calver by Delta Assist. Also in the final, the two herdmates went neck-and-neck, but it was Riedel 919 VG-87 which won the Intermediate Championship and Massia 1127 was honored with an Honorable Mention.

The success of the Intermediate Class was matched by Hedra Holsteins in the category with seniors. Class winner was the excellent, fourth lactation Hedra Sneeker 721 P RDC (by Martini P RDC). Her well-known herdmate, the fifth calver Delta Riana EX-91, was 2nd in the same class. Riana, which is known as the Nelson maternal-sister of the proven sire Delta Bookem Danno, has a current life production of 91,519 kg of milk with 4.27% fat and 3.71% protein. Her dam is Delta Riant, the Bolton daughter of Etazon Renate, which in turn is dam to Delta Atlantic. These class victories resulted in a Championship title for Sneeker 721 P RDC EX-91 and an Honorable Mention for Riana EX-91. Riana also won the Rendementsprijs (high lifetime production award) and the public's favorite was the excellent Hedra Sneeker 721 P RDC from Vernooij.
