Holstein Marketplace Sires, which provides a unique avenue for Holstein breeders to market their own genetics, is seeking potential new bulls for their line-up. Under the program, bull owners retain ownership of the bulls, and Holstein Marketplace Sires coordinates marketing and sales.
Ideal candidates are genomic tested bulls with strong genetic merit, deep maternal pedigrees, and free of haplotypes impacting fertility and any other undesirable genetic conditions. Holstein breeders with interest in submitting a bull for consideration should contact Jodi Hoynoski (firstname.lastname@example.org or 800.952.5200 ext. 4261) with the bull’s name and registration number by August 1.
