Dairy Daughters puts top red-and-white bull up for sale

One of the world’s top red and white bulls for type is now available from Dairy Daughters.

Jotan is a son of Jordan and is in the top dozen for type of all dairy bulls – both red and white and black and white, says Evans Drayton, managing director of Dairy Daughters.

“Jotan will be a welcome addition to any red and white breeder’s genetic armoury, whether milking Ayrshires or red and white Holsteins.”

Ranking alongside household names in the world of high type breeding, such as Picston Shottle, Jotan has a Type Merit of +3.24. “This reflects the incredibly stylish and functionally correct daughters he has produced,” says Mr Drayton.

“Described by sire analysts as outstanding for their high and wide rear udders with exceptional support, it is the strength and substance of the frame on which his daughters are built that is really impressing the breeders.”

Jotan descends from a maternal line of six successive generations classified EX and his dam is the famous Durham daughter, Kamps Hollow Altitude EX95. This makes him half brother to KHW Kite Advent Red, one of the most successful red Holstein bulls of all time.

“We are absolutely delighted to be able to bring a bull of such high calibre to British breeder,” says Mr Drayton.

“He joins two exceptional type bulls we already have in our stud – Mario Xacobeo and ALH Dancer.”
