Few sires accomplish the things BOLIVER has done in his ongoing career with ABS.  Maybe even more extreme in popularity, SHOTTLE has achieved superstardom within the Holstein Breed on a global scale.  The combination of Shottle on the topside of the pedigree with Boliver’s maternal on the bottom side may prove to be legendary!

Sire analysts the world over love to see the same family continue to show up on their radar generation after generation. BEACON is a great example of how continued usage of elite sires on a powerful cow family can yield exciting results time and again.  BEACON’s dam was mated to SHOTTLE on December 2, 2004, RSA Tom Harkenrider’s mating. Only three calves resulted from the mating, with BEACON being the single male. ABS has continued to work with his two full sisters to this day as they are both high scoring, high producing, long-lived cows in two separate herds that you will continue to hear from with sons like 29HO14197 BADGER and future sons by Planet, Freddie, Super, Million, and Domain.

They have very high, wide and capacious rear udders and long fore udders. They walk with an ideal leg set and on a steep foot. Protect BEACON daughters on depth of rib and udder depth.
