A Bull Report by Suzie A. Martin
DOBERMAN is one of SHOTTLE’s finest sons with milking daughters; he is a well-sampled bull that sires extreme components and pleasing management traits. DOBERMAN is a TPI leader who is even more special because of a unique sire stack that includes several generations of calving ease and protein. Furthermore, DOBERMAN is an unusual SHOTTLE son because his 100 milking daughters actually exceed his previous genomic estimates. DOBERMAN’S daughter deviations for production, type and udders surpass his current PTA’s published, pushing his genomic evaluation in a positive direction.

DOBERMAN hails from the herd of Dave and Dawn Windle (Windleway Holsteins) and Craig Windle (Coppertop Holsteins) of Withee, Wisconsin. DOBERMAN’S dam is sired by 1HO3906 J-Mor Elton Granger. Granger now at 99% reliability is a calving ease and protein specialist. The 2nd dam is sired by 1HO3131 Ri-Mark Aerostar Missle-ET and the 3rd dam is sired by 1HO4079 Wa-Del Star Kirby-ET. ABS was attracted to the cow family because the cow family offered protein, CE, longevity and a unique sire stack. DOBERMAN has 6 sisters in production and they average 84 points, ranging from 81 to 86 points.
DOBERMAN daughters have tight fore udders with average udder depth. Their rear udders are acceptable height, but pinched a bit at top. The daughters excel at putting teats under the udder and centrally located. Daughters are tall with wide front ends and level rumps. Protect DOBERMAN for feet & legs that hock in when viewed from rear.
DOBERMAN can be used in the heifer pens and will work well on the daughters of GARRISON, JET STREAM, SANDY, BOLTON, LANGDON, JAMMER, JEEVES, MEGA-MAN as well as Baxter and O-Man.
