OHG - the breeding center for Holsteins in Germany and supplier of high quality livestock, semen & embryos in more than 50 countries worldwide - is well-known for the high genetic level and breeding progress.

New breeding values - April 2019

Please find the top lists of the OHG genomically tested bulls as well as the OHG daughter proven bulls - for the first time with official breeding values for several important health traits. Besides 38.000 genotyped, daughter proven bulls also 100.000 genotyped, proven cows are implemented now in the German reference population (details). We are also very glad about the top rankings in several countries with bulls like ADLON P (ISU 216 in France), ROYCE (NVI 387 in the Netherlands), FELIX (NTM 35 in Scandinavia), SUPREM (ICO 4793 in Spain), but also about NOBEL-RED, ANDY-RED & PERCEY-RED. For the Red Holstein breed also the two highest German Red Factor sires for conformation, ESSEX RDC and BG RADAMES RDC, should be very attractive.

Sexed semen

Sexed female semen is actually available of the following OHG top bulls: SUPREM (A2/A2), ESSEX RDC (A2/A2), GYPSY (A2/A2), NOBEL-RED (A2/A2). Next sexed ADLON P (A2/A2) semen is coming soon.
