Unanimous winners All-American Aged Cow 2023!
Erbacres Snapple Shakira has, unanimously, been named an All American 2023 Aged Cow!
It's not surprising that Erbacres Snapple Shakira EX-97 was named All-American Aged Cow of 2023. She won the Grand & Supreme Champion Laitier 2023, the Grand & Supreme Champion at the World Dairy Expo 2023, and just a few weeks later, the Grand & Supreme Championships at the Royal Winter Fair of 2023. Her impressive winning streak left no doubt that she deserved this prestigious title.
The young sire Jacobs Showtime RC, son of Excalibur, has gained great popularity among Holstein and show enthusiasts. His first daughters just heavily resemble his dam Snapple Shakira! She has had an exceptional year, winning numerous major victories. As a result of her success, Snapple Shakira has been awarded the All-American Aged Cow 2023 title in the annual All-American contest organized by Cowsmopolitan. This EX-97 O' Kaliber x Miss Apple Snapple-Red EX-96 x KHW Regiment Apple-Red EX-96 has previously won this title. In 2018, she won the title of 'All-American Junior 3 Year', and in 2021, she was named 'All-American Mature Cow'. Furthermore, she is a two-time All-Canadian Champion.

Oakfield Solomon Footloose EX-97 was awarded the title of All-American Reserve Aged Cow 2023. She was successful in the show ring at the WDE in 2021 and again in 2023, preceding Snapple Shakira. Footloose was named the next EX-97 scored cow last October after raising her classification score. GenHotel imported embryos by Siemers Wolf Hulu 27006 RC (gesexed) from Footloose's direct Delta-Lambda daughter, Miss Lambda Footloose. These embryos were recently transplanted at Alsgårds Lantbruk (Sweden), and the calves are expected in the autumn of 2024.

The Honorable Mention All-American Aged Cow, Loyalyn Goldwyn June EX-97, is certainly not inferior to the very influential and globally known pair named above. In October, the seventeen-year-old Goldwyn daughter made a 32-hour journey to enter the World Dairy Expo ring, where she won the Longtime Production class. Earlier this year, June's great career came to an end. In her long lifetime, she produced more than 155,000 kgsM in 9 lactations.
