Brown Swiss International – the third edition already!
In July 2017, the magazine Brown Swiss International (BSI) was published for the third time.
World-wide, beta casein A2A2 is a hot topic. Brown Swiss are strong in that area – and that is also true for kappa casein BB. „Genomic 2.0“ was BSI’s unique article about AI trends in Brown Swiss breeding.
Many breeders were visited: Armin Schatt in Switzerland with an average of 11,000 kg and superb conformation. Jürgen Held in Germany is focusing on genomic breeding. We saw dream cows on the farm of Gianmaria Del Curto in Italy, and Josef & Dietmar Holzknecht from Austria are outstanding cow experts.
The world’s only farm with 15 successive generations of excellent cows is Voegeli-Farm in the US, while Wayne Sliker, a legend in American Brown Swiss breeding, shares his thoughts and experiences. In addition, we traced back the family of the two-time Madison winner Brown Heaven Glenn Fantasy no less than 100 years!
BSI covered no less than 11 sires: the progeny proven Cadence, Hidalgo and Salomon as well as the DNA sires Bender, Bisto, Sinatra, Tequila, Blower, Luther, Superstar and Wizdom.
