It was a grand day for 94HO10276 Regancrest DUNDEE at the Midwest National Holstein Spring Show in Jefferson, Wisconsin where he hailed as Premier Sire. Official judge Michael Heath of Westminster, Maryland placed 196 head on Saturday, April 16.
Influencing the Premier Sire recognition included three DUNDEE sired milking daughters being class‐winners, two runner‐ups and three standing third in their respective cow classes. Gracing the winner’s circle in contention for Senior Champion, three of the four cows pulled in were DUNDEE progeny. The DUNDEE legacy also continues to look bright as there were four heifers placing within the top four in their classes.
Leading the way as Senior and Grand Champion was St. Jacob’s very own, Dubeau DUNDEE Hezbollah VG‐89, a Four‐Year‐Old and a part of the St. Jacob’s (STJ) Choice Collection™ program. Ms DUNDEE Belinda, exhibited by Jeff Butler of Illinois was tapped with Reserve honors.
“While DUNDEE is a dominant bull for the show ring, he is still making the great cows and heifers to have as the foundation of a pedigree,” stated Tim Abbott, General Manager, St. Jacob’s ABC/ABS Canada. “He makes the profitable kind to influence elite cow families. And this was a fantastic way to kick‐off the show season.”
The New York National Spring Show recently also delivered exciting results for STJ/ABS. While DUNDEE daughters stood high in the lineups, another leading lady was Rainyridge Talent Barbara EX‐95 owned by Ernie Kueffner and St. Jacobs ABC. Barbara won the Aged‐cow class and went on to be named Reserve Grand Champion. Another cow a part of the St. Jacob’s Choice Collection™ program, Barbara is the dam of Judge’s Choice™ sire, 94HO14456 PERSEUS*RC, a Jasper son available from STJ/ABS.
“PERSEUS would make a great mating on DUNDEE daughters,” commented Abbott. “There are calves on the ground from that mating and people are quite excited about how promising they are.”
St. Jacob’s and ABS Global congratulates and extends appreciation to the exhibitors of DUNDEE sired daughters. Also congratulations to Regancrest Farms for breeding this high‐caliber offering and making the Dellia bloodlines available to breeders around the globe through DUNDEE.
