Spotlight Sire

BALISTO was instantly globally popular with his first units of semen and now graduates into the active line-up. BALISTO is a direct descendant from the 2014 Holstein International Global Cow of the Year, Wesswood-HC Rudolph Missy EX-92 3E GMD DOM. This is the same cow family that produced industry icons Supersire, Mogul, Sid, Power-ball and MONTEREY.
