Oosterbrook Acm S Hanillo VG-88 (s. Hanillo)
The 18th Fokveedag Bathmen/Laren took place last Saturday. Several GenHotel members participated which resulted in numerous, big victories!
A memorable day it was for members Huntje Holsteins, Holbra Holsteins and Oosterbrook Holsteins last Saturday. Participating members won big prizes in various categories. Below an overview:
In the Red & White 2-year-old category, Huntje Holsteins competed with Huntje Holstein Anemoon 291, a first lactation Bentehoek Andy Red. Anemoon 291 freshened at the age of 1.11 yrs and is a granddaughter of Huntje Holstein Anemoon 188 Red GP-84, whose full brother, Huntje Holstein Red River, is stationed at KI Samen. In the championship final, the Andy Red daughter bred by the Oudenampsen family won the reserve title.

In the youngest class, Holbra 3STAR Hellen entered the show ring. Hellen is a Pine-Tree-I Pursuit daughter of Holbra K&L Magic Havelange VG-85. Via Long-Haven Rudolph Dee EX-90 she traces back to the famous broodcow Snow-N Denises Dellia EX-95. Hellen won first place and was later rewarded with an Honorable Mention! Both Hellen and her dam are bred together with GenHotel.
Also Holbra A-L-H Rebecca Red VG-86, VG-88 MS (Spark Red x Primeval Bec RDC) was named Honorable Mention by the judges during the Intermediate Championship. The second calver Spark Red freshened late July and produces about 60 kgs of milk/day with good components.
For Holmer, there was also (double) success in the black and white intermediate class. From the famous Larcrest Juror Chanel family, Holmer bred the second lactation Holbra Charende 1, a VG-85 Farnear Delta-Lambda. Not only does Charende 1 show a big will for production (in 305 days: 11,522 kgsM with 4.55% fat and 3.65% protein), but she also confirms the type qualities of the Chanel family by winning the Intermediate Championship and Udder Championship.
Charende 1 VG-85 competed with herdmate Holbra Joy 2 VG-85 during the championship. Joy 2, full sister of the phenomenal TPI, PFT & ISET transmitter Holbra Joy 1 VG-86 (by Claynook Casper), was named Intermediate Reserve Champion. Embryos of Joy 1 VG-86 were sold to Italy and Switzerland, which led to the birth of the bull Holbra Escope SG which is stationed at Swissgenetics and his Wilder Hulk P half-sister Holbra Helana SG (4561 gPFT & 1622 gISET). Helena SG was sold for no less than CHF 12,000 during the Swissgenetics Top Sale 2021!

A very successful participation also for Oosterbrook Holsteins in the senior B&W category. Here breeder Leon Heijink showed the 5th calver Oosterbrook Acm S Hanillo VG-89 (by Hanillo). The current lifetime production of this silky black cow is 53,589 kgs of milk with 4.37% fat and 3.71% protein. The very feminine Hanillo with a lean refined head and long, narrow and clean neck was praised by the jury. First of all she was named Senior Best Udder, followed by the title 'B&W Reserve Senior Champion'!
