RUW Heifer Show in Krefeld
RUW held its 31st Heifer Show and many breeding enthusiasts and interested parties from Germany and abroad travelled there on March 20th 2019. The show was an evening event so that all visitors could have a chat and discussions afterwards at the breeders’ night.
Andrea Uhrig from Sulzbach was the judge and the competition started off in the Red & White and Black & White classes with particular champion of the breed in order to find the grand champion in the big final.
The Red & White classes were first where the attendees were as strong as in the Black & White classes, too.
Willi Achten, Kempen, could be happy about his Matisse Red daughter Halali (dam s. Julandy) as she ranked at 1b in the first class. She was followed by the Snake Red daughter Janina owned by Wilhelm Verse, Neuenrade, and Nugget RDC daughter RH Malaika (dam s. Joyboy) from the barn of Antonius Richter, Salzkotten.
The second group was dominated by the later Red Holstein reserve champion Thalia Red (s. Absolute-Red) owned by Matthias Nosbisch, Niederweis. In the fourth class, the later Red Holstein champion won: WR Miley of Ludger Wiewer, Drensteinfurt. She was followed by the Present daughter ST Alwine on rank two from the barn of Heinz-Gerd Stegemann, Hamminkel, who is also the breeder of the bull Present.
Brekan daughter WIT Alinde (dam s. Remake P) of Thomas Wiethege from Halver won her class ahead of Havanna (Matisse Red x Malvoy), Hartmut Landwehr, Steinhagen, and Lepoint (Edelmut x Julandy) of Berthold Kandels from Auw.
Matisse Red daughter Abs Felicitas (dam s. Jerudo) owned by Andreas Abs, Pfeffingen, ranked 1b in her class.
Among the Black & White heifers, the later champion and grand champion heifer Roxy (s. Braxton) owned by Bernd Lohmann from Hückeswagen dominated here. In the third Black & White class the later Holstein reserve champion won the 1a rank, THL Rochelle (s. Brady) of Thomas Börsch, Wipperfürth.
Barcley daughter THI Chiquitita (dam s. Big Point) from the barn of Rainer Thoenes, Kalkar, won her group ahead of the Snowflake daughter Elfi of Christoph Hamacher, Kürten, and the Lesson daughter KOE Kora of the Köster KG from Steinfurth.
