In her 6th lactation, the number 1 Dutch Red production cow of 2019 - Poppe Red Hot Rita 860 Red VG-87 - broke through the 100,000 kg barrier! The Poppe Snow RF daughter of Poppe Holsteins and Red Hot Holsteins comes from the Willem's Hoeve Rita's. Rita 860 Red VG-87 - high production and genomics supplier - is also becoming known as the foundation behind several high impacting donors and AI bulls.
Early in the life of this Rita, the (international) possibilities grew. Rita 860 Red was flushed several times with top sires such as Board, Debutant, Mega-Watt RDC and Bagno RC in order to bring multiple offspring. For example, Rita 860 Red bred no less than six sons who could continue their careers at different AI's! One of these sons is the proven bull Poppe Red Hot Neymar RDC at Dutch AI stud KI Kampen.

Via Texel Beauty Debutant daughter Poppe Red Hot Rita 1013 Red VG-86 Poppe & Red Hot were able to bred Poppe Red Hot Bonus-Red (by Bagno RDC) the former no. 2 R&W gRZG bull of Germany. Via Rita 860 VG-87 x Debutant x Mission P RDC x Gywer RDC we get to the 160 gRZG scoring De Sanderij RUW Matrix Red (bull at RUW by K&L OH Matty P RDC) and his two high scoring Star P RDC sisters Sanderij Rita's Romy P RDC (155 gRZG) and Sanderij Rita's Roma P Red (156 gRZG). They also show a huge index for production backed by high RZG's. Sanderij Rita's Romy P RDC was sold during the last GenHotel Selection Sale to Diepenhoek Holsteins where the influence of Rita 860 Red will continue.
