The new, exceptional full brothers Baxtino en Baltollo (Baxter x VG-89 Goldwyn x VG-88 BW Marshall) are the numbers 1 and 2 of the Baxter sons in the German top list. Their dam is the Goldwyn daughter Go-Farm Tina (a full sister to Go-Farm Artes), who, via Jeffrey-Way Tolare, goes back to Jeffrey-Way Formation Tate EX-93. Both bulls are reliably daughter proven and their best traits include great production, attractive type and high longevity. In November 2012 and on the basis of an impressive progeny group, the visitors to the EuroTier in Hannover could convince themselves of the outstanding transmitting qualities of the German top Baxter son, Baxtino. www.masterrind.com semenexport@masterrind.com

Edition: Winter 2013

The new issue of Hotspots arrives at a very exciting moment in our industry. In March, Diamond Genetics France will host the first Paris Dairy Sale followed by the European Championships. First, a sale in the heart of one of the most famous and romantic cities of the world is always a guarantee for an exciting event and we look forward to seeing you there. Meanwhile, across many different countries in Europe, cow lovers are currently working hard to get their cows in top shape for the European contest in Freiburg, Switzerland and we wish all participants good luck in this magnificent event. It is because these breeders, helpers and pure cow lovers put so much energy, 365 days a year into developing these great show cows that we can admire them at these special shows. We look forward to meeting so many people of the industry at this terrific spectacle in Fribourg. Another part of our industry is currently waiting with great anticipation to hear what will be the final details of how breeders gain access to genomic testing for male calves. A balance between breeders and AI companies will be reestablished and we are interested to see if this will bring changes to the industry. So much happening - every day we have another reason to be glad we are part of this industry!

Wesswood-HC Rudy Missy

 Balanced cows that excel in

reliability and health traits

“Our goal was to identify high health trait cows, specifically Rudolphs. I think it was 2002, Rudolph Missy went through a spring auction in Wisconsin and we purchased her over the phone,” shares Andrew Steiner, Pine Tree Dairy. Backed by an Excellent-90 GMD DOM Elton and three more generations Very Good, Wesswood-HC Rudy Missy quickly became a star at Pine-Tree Dairy. An intensive flush program aided by Missy’s fertility resulted in 103 direct progeny and the ability to market and share her genetics with the world. For more than 10 years Rudy Missy has been supplying the industry with elite genetics and leading the pack in reliability and health traits. Today, with names like Shauna, Supersire, Chart Topper, Mogul, Oak and Sid it’s hard to deny the impact of America’s favorite Rudolph daughter.

Scott Culbertson, Select Sires

"The family traits shine through in high production, superb protein pounds and just making the right kind of cattle that your average farmer really likes. Good strength, wide rear udders, mobile feet and legs."

Influential Matings Thirty-nine direct daughters of Rudy Missy have scored Very Good or Excellent over the years and her brood cow status remains undeniable. However, there are a few matings that have lead to the branches that we see most repeated in today's sale catalogs and among the top of genomic charts.

Proven popular sires seemed to get it done when considering the next generation of Rudy Missys. “O-Man and Finley matings were contract matings. I believe Select Sires recommended these sires. We picked Outside, who at the time was a well-proven second crop sire, because we felt it would be valuable in the long run. We also flushed her to Wizard, which was one of four Formation sons considered at the time,” Steiner said.

The O-Mans | Missy Martha All seven females from the flush to O-Man scored Very Good and can be credited to developing the bloodlines for Shauna, Supersire, Chart Topper, Mogul and Oak. Scored Very Good-86 DOM, Pine-Tree Missy Martha is the dam of Shottle Martha Sheen Very Good-86 DOM. Martha Sheen has four daughters among the Top 200 GTPI Cows Classified in the U.S. and boasts a GTPI of +2199 herself.

Mike Ammon, Ammon Farms

“Martha is the kind of cow that can be mated to a lot of different bulls and she transmits well to all of them. She has a high percentage of her offspring that are above parent average. She is probably our once in a lifetime cow." Martha Sheen turned 13-years-old in January and still plays an important role in the genetic program at Ammon Farms with 50 IVF pregnancies coming from her. Ammon-Peachey Shauna Very Good-87 DOM is undoubtedly the best daughter to date from Martha Sheen considering the bulls she has put into A.I. Sired by Planet, Shauna exudes dairyness and

Greg Andersen, Seagull-Bay Dairy Inc.

“Shauna backs up her genomic prediction. She was our best two-year-old while we had her here and then when she went to Sunshine Genetics she was the best looking and best producing two-year-old in their barn as well. She made a terrific record with over 1400 fat and almost 1100 protein, she scored Very Good-87 at just two years and four months, and she has a pedigree and cow family that is popular worldwide. Shauna is the ideal modern brood cow: pedigree, production, type and genomics. She is a complete cow.” Ammon-Peachey Shauna VG-87 DOM Dam of the No. 1 TPI Genomic Young Bull, Supersire

strength similar to her Shottle dam. Consigned by Ammon and Peachey to the 2008 Eastern Elite Sale as a first choice female offering, Seagull-Bay Dairy was the winning bidder in what has proven to be a very advantageous purchase. “We really liked the Rudy Missy family as Missy had several successful proven sons and her family was also doing well with early genomic testing. The sire stack was also very promising with Planet x Shottle x O-Man x Rudolph making four iconic sires all lined up,” said Greg Andersen, Seagull-Bay Dairy. Shauna ranked No. 4 female in the breed following her first genomic release in August 2009 and the interest for her genetics has been steady ever since. Especially from an A.I. standpoint as Scott Culbertson, Holstein Sire Analyst for Select Sires Inc. shares, “When Shauna was an open heifer, she ranked quite well on genomics, was an above average heifer easily, we started in contracting her on the families past performance of genetics.” Shauna’s genomic ranking has held steady and following the December 2012 proof run, she was the No. 10 GTPI Cow on the Locator List. She is also proving to be the next generation brood cow from the Rudy Missys with five sons in A.I. that are amongst the top of the charts in the U.S. and Canada. Coming in at No. 1, Supersire is the Robust son of Shauna at Select Sires with a GTPI of +2530. “The Robust mating is special to us because Robust is a grandson of our Seagull-Bay Manat Mirage cow. Because we are so familiar with the Mirage family we had great confidence in using Robust on Shauna. The first mating was done with early contract semen from Select and both Supersire and Headliner are results of that flush. Later we did another IVF flush to Robust and Seagull-Bay Miss America is the younger full sister to Supersire as well as one of the top 25 net merit heifers of the breed,” shared Andersen. “Supersire himself started off very slow making semen and it was a marketing headache. With time though he improved significantly and now in December on his first SCR rank, he is also a breed leader for conception. Regardless of genomic rank, there are actually farmers using him just for conception and his ability to settle cows," Culbertson said. Shauna’s Freddie sons, Sargeant and Shaw also rank very well coming in at No. 3 and No. 4 on the GPA-LPI list in Canada for young genomic bulls. Sargeant has a GPA-LPI of +3343 and is marketed by Trans-American Genetics (TAG) and Shaw has a GPA-LPI of +3326 and a GTPI of +2359 and is marketed through Select Sires.

Pine-Tree Finley Minnie EX-91-CAN DOM Dam of No. 3 GEBV Confirmation Bull in Canada, Sid (12/12)

Diamond and Platinum, Shauna’s Snowman sons, just debuted on Holstein Association USA’s Top 100 TPI Genomic Young Bulls list this past December in the No. 20 spot. “The snowman cross is also unique as it was supposed to be a solo pregnancy but the embryo split, hence two for one! Platinum and Diamond, from a marketing standpoint, it is great having two brothers making semen with identical genetics,” Culbertson said. The daughters of Ammon-Peachey Shauna have also been testing very well with three near or above +2500 GTPI. Shauna’s highest GTPI daughter at +2503G is Seagull-Bay SH Maureen-ET sired by Numero Uno and is a fancy young calf born in November at Seagull-Bay. Her third highest daughter and a full sister to Supersire, Seagull-Bay Miss America-ET, sold on the Genomic Power Sale for $187,000 to Tranquillty AG and TAG. Other daughters commanding top prices included a Snowman and Shauna’s only Windbrook selling to Eastside. The Planet mating to Martha Sheen sure hit a home run with Shauna but it is her full sister, Ammon-Peachey Shana that sold for $167,000 in the 2011 Sale of Stars. Shana consigned by Farnear Holsteins, Iowa to the sale was the successful purchase of Benner Holsteins and Pennview Farm, Manitoba where she is currently being flushed. Shana is also scored Very Good-87 DOM and is the No. 25 GLPI Cow in Canada. Her highest genomic tested daughter, Benner Hefty Samantha, has a GPA-LPI of +3467 making her the No. 17 GPA-LPI Heifer in Canada for December 2012. Shana’s sister, Ammon-Peachy Super Miki Very Good-85, will be moving to Canada in late January joining her at Benner Holsteins. Super Miki is currently the No. 3 GTPI Superstition daughter in the U.S. and made headlines back in 2011 selling for $150,000 in the International Intrigue Sale to Elite Dairy Genomics, Illinois. The No. 2 GTPI Zenith on the Locator List is also a daughter of Martha Sheen, Pine-Tree Zenith Sheen Very Good-87 DOM. Her daughter by Robust has a GTPI of +2405 and was the second high seller on the The Best of Rudy Missy and Pine Tree Dairy Sale. Pine-Tree 2149Robst 4846 was the successful purchase of Country Dairy, Inc., Michigan where she was flushed extensively and is now due in August to Man-O-Shan.

Mixer are the Dorcy grandsons of Pine-Tree Missy Miranda Very Good-86 DOM. Miranda is also the dam of the former No. 1 GTPI daughter in the United States, De-Su 199 Chart Topper. Sired by De-Su Watson, Chart Topper is owned by Elite Dairy Genomics, Illinois.

The O-Mans | Missy Melinda The Shottle mating on the O-Man sisters simply worked and when followed with Planet then Robust results happened. Carters-Corner Shot Melody Excellent-90 DOM is the Shottle daughter of Melinda and the dam of Brookview-E Moviestar Very Good-86. Planet Moviestar has a Robust daughter, Moviestar Shaker, with a GTPI of +2384 and a Robust son, Moviestar Model, at Jetstream Genetics. Model is the No. 4 RZG genomic sire in Germany at +158.

The O-Mans | Missy Monica AltaOak, Relief P, Jeeves Gallon, Monica Planeta and the list continues for the notable offspring of the Monica line of the Rudy Missy. Pine-Tree Leif Suzy scored Very Good-86 is one of the Steiner’s favorite Missy offspring currently in the herd. “She has a strong body, high health traits, and solid transmitting ability,” shared Steiner. Suzy is the Leif daughter of Pine-Tree Monica Suzy Very Good-87 DOM followed by Missy Monica. Her Niagra son, AltaOak is currently the No. 7 GTPI Young Genomic Bull in the U.S. and his unique sire stack make him an excellent outcross sire that is already being used quite heavily for contracts and flush. Pine-Tree Monica Planeta the Very Good-85 DOM Planet granddaughter of Missy Monica was purchased by Sandy Valley Farms, Wis. in the 2011 National Convention Sale as an open yearling because of her high genomic index.

Greg Bauer, Sandy Valley Farm

“She [Planeta] has a number of Uno daughters that have tested well including ones at +2643G, +2524G, +2503G, +2447G and +2419G. We plan to produce as many offspring as possible from our Uno daughters via ET and IVF." The continued success of the Rudy Missy family generation after generation coupled with The Best of Rudy Missy and Pine Tree Dairy Sale have allowed genetics to disperse across the globe. Furthermore, finding satisfied buyers is quite easy when considering the strengths of the Rudy Missys. "The family has a very nice balance between strength and dairy with consistently good udders and docile temperment," Bauer said. The Best of Rudy Missy and Pine Tree Dairy Sale was a great tribute to an amazing and sought-after cow family as illustrated by their average of $11,784 on over 80 lots. “The sale we had was a valuable experience! We had not decided to have the sale until August/July of that summer. We have seen different lots that sold - go to their new herds and succeed, in the one and half years since November 2011. In our minds, this is critical to thinking a sale is successful,” Steiner said.

The Mints It was the Outside Mint family that highlighted The Best of Rudy Missy and Pine Tree Dairy Sale with the high seller. Pine-Tree 4233 Obsrv4858 topped the sale bringing a commanding $92,000 and selling to Elite Dairy Genomics. Her dam, Pine-Tree Diehard Sharla, also sold that day for $70,000. The buzz over the Mint maternal line continues with several high polled individuals. Pine-Tree Colt Shine-P is the grandson of Outside Mint with a GTPI of +2239 making him one of the highest red carrier, polled bulls worldwide with breeders anxiously awaiting his release from Select Sires. Shine-P’s full sister, Pine-Tree Diva Mint-ET has a GTPI of +2181 and is the No. 8 GTPI polled female in the U.S., owned by Edward Peck and Charles Garrison, Wis. A proven next generation brood cow, Pine-Tree Outside Mint Very Good-87 DOM is also dam of the Shottle son, Pine-Tree Spearmint that is marketed through Select Sires.

Missys Outside the U.S. Throughout this article descendants of the Rudy Missy family have continually been admired for their average stature, ample strength, high wide rear udders and great feet and legs. Show size and style is certainly not prominent in the family; however, Minnie broke the mold. Pine-Tree Finley Minnie Excellent-91-CAN owned by Quality Holsteins, Ontario is the dam of the top type bull, Pine-Tree Sid. Sired by Mr Sam, Sid is marketed through Semex and their ShowTime program and boasts a conformation of +16. The Missy family has also found its way to the UK through a couple of interesting lines of the family that keep developing. Ballycairn Holsteins recognized the value of the family some time ago and invested in embryos from Pine-Tree Missy Martha. This resulted in two full sisters to the prolific bull dam Shauna as well as two full brothers who both went to Genus ABS UK. Ballycairn Planet Missy returned a high GTPI and was subsequently sold to Willsbro Holsteins. As of December she maintained a GTPI of +2198 and is now classified Very Good86. Her daughters are coming through well including Willsbro Missy Mariah (by Larson) at +2232 GTPI and a couple of sons that have entered European AI stations. Ballycairn Planet Martha, GTPI +2149, remains with the McCollums and scored Very Good-87. She has a Doberman heifer now in-calf to AltaOak, three recent Tiergan heifers and her only son, by Leko, has also been sold to Genus ABS UK. Overside Holsteins have also had some success with the Missy family through a Jenny-Lou Marshall granddaughter of Wesswood-HC Rudy Missy via Pine-Tree Finley Minnie. Overside Lou Minnie scored the maximum of Very Good-89 as a two-year-old and now has three milking Hayden daughters, all Very Good, as well as sons in A.I. While there is not a date set for a subsequent Rudy Missy feature sale it is certainly not out of the question. The success of the WesswoodHC Rudy Missy family is without a doubt rooted deep in the heart of the breeding program at Pine Tree Dairy, yet the distribution of genetics through numerous public and private sales has proven invaluable in the marketing of the family. Today’s generation of Rudy Missys continue to meet the demands of the market and with male and female offspring amongst the top of the charts worldwide the future looks very bright for this tremendous U.S. rooted family.

BUTZ-BUTLER GOLD BARBARA VERY GOOD-89 VEVVE AT 2-10 Breeder: Butz-Hill Holsteins, Iowa and Jeff Butler, Illinois Owner: Jeff Butler, Don Barry, Illinois and La Ponderosa, Spain Show Results: • Unanimous All-American Senior 2-Year-Old 2012 • All-Canadian Senior 2-Year-Old 2012 • HM Intermediate Champion, Royal Winter Fair 2012 • Reserve Intermediate Champion, International Holstein Show 2012 Story: Barbara was born November 2009 the Goldwyn daughter of Shottle Brasilia EX-92 followed by the fantastic Durham Barbie. A proven sire stack and a tremendous type pedigree, Barbara was destined for greatness. She sold as an open heifer in March 2010 to Walkerbrae and Crasdale. Barbara freshened in March 2012 and scored Very Good-87 just 40 days fresh. It was evident that Barbara was a force to be reckoned with and caught the attention of Peter Vail and Budjon Farms selling for $187,000 on the 2012 International Intrigue. Barbara went on to dominate the senior two-year-old class at World Dairy Expo and the Royal Winter Fair and sold back to co-breeder, Jeff Butler.

Breeder Comments: Jeff Butler “When she sold at the sale [International Intrigue] I thought she for sure would be an All-American nomination. Milksource was in at over $150,000 and Blondin was contender. Peter bought her for $187,000 from his hospital bed in Kankakee, Ill. where he was undergoing tests for heat stress. When I saw her at Expo she had developed more and I was pretty sure she was going to win or had a really good chance of winning. I got a price from Budjon and Peter Vail and informed them I wanted to buy her but needed to wait for my partner to get back from a trip. When he [Don Barry] returned from his trip he agreed to purchase half of Barbara with me.

We went and got Barbara and brought her back to the farm and took her to the Royal where she won an exciting battle in the senior two-year-old class. Before the show, Isaac Lancaster helped secure a deal for one-third selling to La Ponderosa, Spain from Don Barry and myself. Barbara has continued to develop even more and is due to calve back in June of this year. We are very excited about her future. She is one of the rare cows that can be All-American and All-Canadian and still has the great maternal line and high genomics for her age. This will allow us to sell embryos, live females, first choices and bulls out of her.”

SAVAGE-LEIGH LEONA EXCELLENT-96 EEEEE Breeder: Christopher Wayne Savage, Maryland Owner: Christopher Wayne Savage, Maryland Show Results: • Reserve All-American 125,000 lb. Cow 2012 • Grand Champion, Eastern Fall National 2012 • Reserve Senior Champion, Eastern Fall National 2011 • Nominated All-American and All-Canadian 2010 • 6th Junior 3-Year Old, International Holstein Show 2008 • HHM All-American Junior 2-Year Old 2007 Story: A third generation All-American nominee, Savage-Leigh Leona-ET Excellent-96 EEEEE has the pedigree to back up her impressive resume. Leona was born in March 2005, the Canyon-Breeze Allen daughter of the great Savage-Leigh Licorice Excellent-92 GMD DOM and the tremendous Bellwood Lindas. Breeder Comments: Chip Savage – “She has always been a standout, as a heifer and when she

calved as a two-year-old with a tremendous udder, we knew she was something special. Leona continues to just get better every year maturing into her frame and developing a tremendous rib. She is an easy keeper that loves to milk and eat. Leona is looking like she might be a better brood cow than Licorice but we still need some time to determine that. She currently has VG

daughters in the U.S., Canada and the UK with still a strong demand for embryos worldwide. More than eight daughter have sold over the $20,000 price point and Leona is currently being flushed and will be back on the show circuit in 2013.”

DECRAUSAZ IRON O’KALIBRA *RC EXCELLENT -94 EEEEE AT 5-02 Breeder: Decrausaz Fredy et Fils, Viteboeuf, SW Owner: GS Alliance (SW) and Pat Conroy (USA) Show Results: • Grand & Supreme Champion Swiss Expo 2013 • Grand & Supreme Champion Swiss Expo 2012 • 1st & Res. Grand Champion Expo Bulle 2011 • Hon. Mention Swiss Expo 2011 Story: In the first edition of ShowSpots we couldn’t leave out the European model show cow, Decrausaz Iron O’Kalibra from Switzerland. O’Kalibra is currently one of the most admired show cows in the world just capturing the champion banner at the Swiss Expo in Lausanne (SW) for the second year in a row. She will be looking to secure another title in March, as she gets ready for the European Show in Fribourg. O’Kalibra has a special pedigree, the *RC Boss Iron daughter from an Excellent-90-SW Integrity and backed by brood cow, Cloverlands Skylar Cherry Red

Very Good-87-CAN 12*. Cherry represents a well-respected maternal line in Canada that also produced Mr Burns and Tribute. Today, O’Kalibra is owned by GS Alliance, Switzerland and Pat Conroy of the U.S. Breeder Comments: Pat Conroy - “We bought part ownership of her three or four years ago, she was just fresh and a little heavy but extremely balanced with a wide chest and good udder. She wasn’t a flashy young cow but had the width and balance to go on and make a great aged cow in my mind. She is unique because she is extremely dairy with adequate

strength, which seems to be a rarity these days but also has the udder and the pedigree to go with her. We will probably wait until after the Fribourg show to start flushing and are looking at using Goldwyn and Armani *RC. I would like to sell a first choice from O’Kalibra in North America and see how that sells; we are selling a Sid heifer from her on Feb. 28 in the Swiss Mountain High Sale. She also has an Acme son at Swiss Genetics and a Sid son at Select Start in Germany.”

BONS-HOLSTEINS ELLA 158 EXCELLENT-93 EEEE AT 6-08 Breeder: Bons-Holsteins, Ottolond, NL Owner: Bons-Holsteins, Ottolond, NL Show Results: • Grand Champion HHH-Show 2012 • HM Intermediate Champion Int. Show Libramont 2010 • HM Sr. Champion Hoornaar 2012 Story: 2012 was the year for Bons-Holsteins Ella 158 winning the National HHH-Show, judged by Mark Rueth, Rosedale Genetics, U.S. This beautiful Poly-Kow Durham Mailing daughter comes from an EX-90 Bonatus and stems from multiple generations of homebred cows carrying the Bons Holsteins prefix. The Ellas from Bons have bred several show champions in the past and stand for long-lasting cows with powerful type. The four generations preceding Ella 158 have

an average lifetime production of more than 100.000 kg of milk. Breeder Comments: Nico Bons “Ella 158 is the current star of the Ellas which is probably our best cow family in the herd. Ella 158 is the highest classified cow in our herd ever at Excellent-93. In her, I see the real pattern in the family, which are late maturing, and perfectly balanced cows that are getting better with age. As a two-year-old she

scored Very Good-88 and we showed her for the first time in her second lactation. Right now she is better than ever and we hope she is back in calf to Atwood, the perfect cross on her right now in my opinion.”

RICHAVEN GOLDWYN ADRIENNE EXCELLENT-93-2E EEEE AT 5-03 Breeder: Richard Bown, Worcestershire, UK Owner: Richard Bown, Worcestershire, UK Show Results: • Nominated All-Britain 3rd Calver 2012 • Reserve All-Britain Senior Second Calver 2011 • Senior Champion National All Breeds Show 2012 • Senior Champion National All Breeds Show 2011 Story: She scored the maximum score in every lactation and shown very successfully over the last couple of years, she won the Senior Championship at the last two UK National All Breeds Shows. She has Windbrook dtrs in the barn already and her first dtr by Shottle scored VG-87-UK 2yr. Adrienne is due with her fourth by Glauco in August ‘13 . Breeder Comments: Richard Bown is clear that Adrienne has always stood out in the barn; ‘She has always had that clean cut, rib and extra de-

velopment since an early age. She now has all the attributes I want in a cow – strength with show style, a real silky dairy cow and a great attitude to work with. She lives in with the rest of the cows and is a dream cow to manage – she never has an off day, always looking the same from any angle at any time. Visitors to the farm always comment on how good she looks in her working clothes and I cannot em-

phasise enough how easy Adrienne is to work with – we never need to do anything with her, a totally natural cow. There is no malice in Adrienne, you can do anything with her and I wish I had more like her. Hotspots | 53

Breeding Management 7 | In Vitro Fertilization

Multiply fast with IVF Multiplying top genetics has worked extremely well for decades now using conventional embryo transfer (ET). Over the past few years however, further advancements in reproductive technologies have been developed, namely In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) and this improved technique comes with a lot of advantages. More and more breeders are choosing IVF within their breeding programs, and Hotspots is here to tell you why.

“Vieuxsaule Allen Dragonfly was among the first group to try frozen IVF embryos [at Boviteq]. We have more than 15 females from 22 frozen IVF embryos that gives us a 68% success on fertility. It is preferable to implant in heifers; we have tried to implant cows in lactation and the success is around 40% with the same with frozen regular embryos,” shared Jimmy Perreault, Vieux Saule Holsteins, Quebec.

For a long time, IVF was considered as simply the last chance option for cows that didn't make any embryos using standard ET techniques, or as a way to get embryos from pregnant animals. After considerable improvements in the processes involved however, IVF has now developed into a practical alternative to conventional ET.

So far the principle of IVF is not very different from conventional ET, except for the use of hormones. Breeders can, but don't have to inject their donor cows with hormones for an IVF session. In fact, in the EU it's forbidden by law to treat pregnant animals with hormones. Therefore European technicians have a scheme for IVF up to twice a week, while in North America the procedure is carried out every two weeks and hormones are more common, yielding better results.

Collecting oocytes As with ET, the basis of IVF is to enable cows to produce multiple calves per year. Unlike ET however, IVF involves the collection of unfertilized eggs, (oocytes) from the donor, rather than established embryos. With a specially designed probe, the technician can collect oocytes straight from the ovary using a needle, while watching the process through ultrasound. Once in the lab, the oocytes mature in a controlled medium within an incubator for 18 to 24 hours. The next day semen is added and fertilization takes place over the next seven days while an incubator is used to ensure optimum development of the oocytes into embryos. After evaluation under a microscope, IVF embryos are graded similar to conventional ET embryos. The grade one and two embryos are ready to be transferred into recipients which were in standing heat seven to eight days before the transfer. Fresh transfer tends to give the best results, although in the most progressive/experienced IVF labs the embryos can be frozen for storage.

Ben Aerts, CRV

Breeding from pregnant cows

There are considerable advantages to using IVF. First and foremost, it is possible to use IVF on pregnant cows, with hardly any risk to the unborn calf. The cervix and uterus are not handled at all, only the ovaries, and therefore there is no interference with the embryo/calf in the donor cow. It is safe to collect oocytes from donor cows between 45 and 100 days pregnant and sometimes the process can continue up to six months gestation, as long as the ovaries remain accessible to the technician. For breeders who want a donor cow to remain in the showstring, or ensure that a donor continues to make good milk records, keeping them to a minimum calving interval is important - IVF allows this flexibility. Similarly, for breeders who like their heifers to enter production at two years of age, IVF is a good method of producing the next generation while the donor cow continues to make conventional records. Another advantage is that IVF can carried out early in lactation.

CRV technician Ben Aerts notices that IVF is growing in popularity. “At first we only used IVF on cows who didn't respond on ET, but the other advantages of IVF are for breeders a good argument to offer more and more cows and heifers for IVF. Most of the 3600 sessions we did in 2012 were pregnant animals.” The use of more different (and newest) bulls, more embryos produced and not having to use hormones are for breeders good reasons to start with IVF. “The technique is more expensive then conventional ET; therefore, it is important that breeders can sell the bulls as well. Although we see that the results with sexed semen are also very good”, observes Ben. “Our results with SiryX semen are as good as with conventional semen.”

When donor cows are at the start of a lactation and at peak production, no breeder wants to consider flushing them. IVF now makes it possible to begin a breeding program in the first few weeks after calving and the same applies to young animals. As ovulation is not required for the production of oocytes, juvenile heifers who are too young to enter an ET program, can be very productive flushing via IVF.

26 sessions per year As the interval between IVF sessions is much shorter than that required for ET, over a period of 90 days, a donor can be aspirated up to six times - in the EU, donors are collected twice a week. Conventional ET work only allows about nine sessions every year, while IVF can allow for approximately 26 collections annually. If five viable embryos are created with every IVF session, statistically this will result in many more pregnancies than through ET alone. This also provides a much larger cross section of mating combinations. Because the semen is introduced in the lab rather than in utero, the amount of semen can be reduced and it is easy to use a number of sires by dividing the oocytes into different dishes. Semen costs can be reduced through the option of sexed semen, which tends to be more effective in IVF then with ET, and less of it, as less sperm cells are necessary. Some IVF labs are also capable of sexing semen from any bull before using it in IVF, which can enhance heifer production where sexed semen is not available. Another well known advantage of IVF is the possibility to extract oocytes from cows that have not responded to ET work. Some donors have an impassable cervix, produce a lot of unfertilized eggs or have reproductive abnormalities, but go on to produce well through IVF. In extreme cases, oocytes can also be recovered from the ovaries of

slaughtered females. IVF can provide a solution to any reproductive challenges, making every female a potentially viable donor.

IVF: twice as many calves As you may expect, there are still some disadvantages to IVF. Embryos developed in a lab are not quite as robust as those from ET. The best environment to develop embryos is of course, the uterus of the cow. Every procedure can deliver between 12 and 30 oocytes, but only around 30% will grow into a high quality, transferable embryo. For example, 20 oocytes result in about five transferable embryos and a pregnancy rate of around 50% can be expected from fresh transfers. There is also a subsequent 10% decrease in pregnancies from frozen IVF embryos. On average, 10 to 15% of IVF procedures result in zero viable embryos. When you put this all together however, IVF will still deliver twice as many calves. These are all average numbers of course - there are also success stories with 80 pregnancies in six months! With the high technical input, IVF is more expensive than ET, although obviously the costs per pregnancy/live calf depend on the results.

Successful multiplying Which breeders use IVF in their breeding program? It varies from a breeder with one donor who no longer responded to ET work, to another who wants to increase herd size quickly so he uses IVF to make female pregnancies. And then there is the breeder who wants to maximize the use of rare semen, and of course, the very popular donor cows with a big demand for embryos, bulls and calves. From this group of cows, it is more successful to multiply using IFV.

Dan Siemers, Siemers Holsteins

"We have switched to almost exclusive use of IVF in our flushing program for many reasons. We can start collecting heifers at an earlier age (10 months). IVF is also more cost effective to make females, as almost any bull can be reverse sorted at Trans-Ova before fertilization. It is easier on the cow, and our best females can be run every two weeks. Freezing these IVF eggs has been a challenge, but this process has been refined well enough to make it a very attractive option. This past year our farm has transferred 61 frozen IVF eggs with 32 60-day pregnancies so far. In the embryo sales, if possible, I like to buy frozen IVF eggs as I see them as a good value, especially when the goal is to make females."

The Caps MAIRY Family Genomics shifted the Mairys into the next gear Of course, the Jo-Wal Cleitus Macey family became world famous in the last century. Four generations later, the best of her offspring can be found in the Netherlands where Caps Mairy is working on an even more impressive and influential maternal line. A new foundation cow which will have -without a doubt- a lot of impact on the international Holstein breed.

And -even more important- she put bulls on the ground who helped spread the Macey genes worldwide, Such as Leadman son Mac Man, Wister son Myriad and more influential: Jo-Wal Cubby Metro EX-94. Born in 1992, this Cubby son

would still make a lot of farmers happy up to the year 2013, as the performance of almost 36.000 milking daughters worldwide. Metro daughters are cows with size, capacity, body condition and enormous will to milk! His index still shows a big plus in kilos milk. At that time strong cow families were recognized without any knowledge of genomics. In the meantime Macey's breeder, Joseph Waldvogel, passed away. Today his son George, (at 74 years old) manages the farm, however, there is no trace of Macey’s genetics on the farm anymore “Her calves were selling so well that I just continued to sell them when I got a heifer calf. They were bringing 20.000 to 30.000 dollars.” Macey was flushed until the end of her life, until she broke a stifle and had to be put down. One of the most successful family members marketed at the time was Jo-Wal Mascot Meg. She sold as a young heifer for 15.000 dollars to Sikkema-Star Holsteins and they managed to create their own special Macey line that resulted in another bull named Metro - he also left his mark in the breed: Sikkema-Star Hi Metro EX-96, a Highlight son out of Sikkema Star El Maycy VG-88, daughter of Mascot Meg and granddaughter of Jo-Wal Cleitus Macey. Elton Maycy not only impressed with her strong conformation, but also with a first lactation record of 16.363 kilos milk and -not surprisingly- high components. In her time she had the same status as brood cows like Dellia and Southwind Kaye. Maycy topped the CTPI ranking and sent over 50 sons to AI's all over the world. Metro wrote history as an extreme udder improver. “The Metro daughters remind me of Elton Maycy, they have exceptional high and wide rear udders with strong ligaments and correct teat placement. They also have Maycy's flat clean dairy bone”, says Wayne Glaeser who worked with the Sikkema’s on developing this line of the Macey tree.

Durham daughter Caps Mairy Its a long, but interesting prologue to come to the subject of this article: Caps Mairy! She was born in the geographic heart of the Netherlands on the farm of Ton Captein. “ When I visited the US”, Ton remembers, I saw a lot of Durham daughters, and I was very impressed by the dairy strength of his daughters but couldn’t get Durham genes through semen.” Back in the Netherlands he decided to buy Durham embryos in order to secure the genetics of this unique Bell Elton son for his farm. Ton bought embryos out of Agriprize Muffin, a daughter of the earlier mentioned Jo-Wall Mascot Meg. The embryos resulted in Caps Mairy, born in October 2000 and as a two-year-old, Ton was rewarded with a score of VG-87, including VG-89 for her mammary. “She also had super production in her first lactation”, says an enthusiastic Ton. With 10.107 kilos of milk in 305 days, she was one of the most productive first calvers of that year. Mairy was about to calve for the second time, when she was unfortunately lost. “She would have been an excellent cow easily”, Ton says with regret. “She died too early.” Evelien and Sakia Captein with Caps Mairy 14 Mairy 14 is the current star of the family and No. 1 GTPI Jeeves Worldwide

The good news was that she already had daughters in the Caps barn

Caps Mairy 14 The No. 1 GTPI Jeeves Worldwide

including Caps Mairy 1 VG-85. This O-Man daughter impressed in her first lactation by scoring 25% above herd average. She made a production of 10.474 kilos milk with 3,7% fat and 3,6% protein. “A trouble free, strong cow with high protein, exactly the way I like them.” In three lactations she produced over 40.000 kilos of milk and AI organization CRV tested a few sons from her, for example Caps Mario. But the best thing Mairy 1 left behind were her daughters. Caps Mairy 5 for example, her Duplex daughter, made a first lactation with almost 12.000 kilos milk, at 3,9% fat and 3,7% protein. Her Million daughters now score 86 and 87, a Ramos is VG-85 and her RF Fidelity is just fresh: “all extreme good cows with super production.” And there is Caps Mairy 13, a VG85 Glen daughter out of Mairy 1, Mairy 7 (s. Goldwyn) who died too early, but left on Cap farms a VG-86 Virzil daughter: Caps Mairy 12. With the number of Mairys on Caps Farms increasing rapidly, it's impossible to write down all their achievements.

Mairy 4: big star! But by far the big star from the family is Caps Mairy 4 VG-85. Almost seven years old now, this Goldwyn daughter from Mairy 1 is still alive and working on more sons and daughters. “After she calved in as such a nice individual we had her tested and she came back as the #1 GTPI Goldwyn daughter in Europe. From that moment things moved quickly and she attracted global interest. Nowadays you will find exciting Mairy progeny all over the world, even at Braedale Holsteins in Canada.” Snowman, Epic, Explode....and pregnancies from Parma PP, Supersire.....Mairy 4 still puts exciting sons and daughters on the ground. “Her first sons will have daughter proven indexes within one or two years. They all have a remarkable score for fertility, a strong family characteristic.” Ton describes Mairy 4 as a long, heavy and wide Goldwyn. “A barrel of a cow. Although she is flushed for a long time, she still has super feet and legs and great claws.” Mairy 4 has several bulls in AI. For example Caps Sunset at CRV, a young high potential InSire bull who is widely available thanks to his high all-round scores for milk, conformation, health and lifetime production. A Niagra son is high in Germany and Semex has a Xacobeo and, recently acquired a high GTPI Fernand son. Another Fernand son will go to Cogent, UK. Caps Mairy 4’s genetics -exactly like Jo-Wal Cleitus Macey- went all over the world. History repeats itself. The good ones are where you find them!

Her Sudan dtr scores RZG +155 (12/12)

Top record prices After the first genomics came back on the sons and daughters, the popularity surrounding Mairy’s name intensified and the search widened to include her daughters. For example her Roumare daughter, Mairy 10 VG-86. As a two-year old she produced 9171 kilos milk, 4,28% fat and 3,63% protein in the NOG herd in Germany where she tested as the #1 RZG Roumare daughter on the German base. Incredibly, her Jeeves, Niagra, Magna P and Xacobeo offspring are all ranked as their fathers’ best. The marketability of the family has also been proved through sales, where they make it to top sellers: her Niagra daughter was top seller at the Luxemburg Classic Sale 2011 with € 22.000. Another example of impressive offspring is Mairy 14. She is the number one GTPI Jeeves in the world and she sold for € 58.000 to Diamond Genetics, Cormdale Genetics (CAN), Al-Be-Ro (IT) and Ponderosa Holsteins (ES). Her full brother Caps Marbach now has a very healthy career at AI Total. At the latest Holland Masters Sale in June 2012, Mairy 14 went back to her roots at Caps Farms when she was purchased for € 25.000. She calved in November 2012 and looks awesome (see picture). Although she is producing more than 50 kilos of milk per day (highest two-yearold in the herd ever), she is in an IVF program and her Epic daughter will sell at the European Sale in Fribourg on March 1. Another impressive daughter from Mairy 4 is Vekis Xaco Melody VG85. She is the No. 2 GTPI Xacobeo in the world. At the Holland Master Sale her Sudan daughter sold for € 20.500 to Nosbisch Holsteins in Germany and she is one of the highest Sudan's in the world for GTPI. Her actual gRZG of +155 also makes her the new #1 RZG heifer in Germany! Being a Sudan x Xacobeo makes her interesting for every breeding program, including those that look for outcross bloodlines.

All types of management “The cow family outshines others for protein, lifetime production, fertility, cell count and udders”, states Ton, while he mentions that in addition, the Mairy's easily adapt to different management systems “We changed to robot milking and are feeding hay and concentrates. The Mairy's are still the best cows in the barn. They have the character and the mobility for robot milking.” And the change to a ration of hay and (lots of) concentrate, a few years ago, didn't bother them at all either. “The Mairys work well in every barn."

Long-Langs OMAN OMAN Choose your favorite MAN-O-MAN daughter

ď&#x192;&#x161;

It has been unbelievably difficult to filter a small selection of Man-O-Man daughters, as there are so many great and interesting ones around the world! Since his start and first proof, Man-O-Man has been one of the most popular OMan sons. Today he has over 600 daughters in his American index and with a TPI over +2200; he still ranks near the top of the American proven sire list. In Canada, Man-O-Man had his first official evaluation in December and made a legendary step in his career. His 288 Canadian classified daughters earned him the top spot on the Canadian ranking with a GLPI of +3461 and Conformation +12. That's the highest LPI score ever reached by a daughter proven sire in history! It is safe to say Man-O-Man is going to have a huge influence in the breed through his daughters and heavily used sons like Numero Uno, Hunter, Emmett, Maxim, Man-O-Shan, Lexor and many more!

BULLS AT THE TOP THAT OPEN UP NEW HORIZONS In addition to top-notch production, the improvement of health, welfare and fertility traits is good for the cow and also makes an efficient lifetime production of the herd possible. CRV supplies bulls to the top of every list, that enable dairy farmers to benefit from this double advantage.
