Holstein World: Name your all-time favorite cow and all-time favorite bull. This could be an animal you have owned or just admired from afar. Then, name your up & coming favorite cow and bull.
Mark & Stephanie: C Glenridge Citation Roxy is our favorite cow but you can’t exclude other breed favorites like Laurie Sheik, Lincoln Bonnie, Shoremar Alicia and Markwell Raven. Roundoak Elevation is our favorite sire- many famous families go back to him (Rae, Elegance, Raven and another favorite sire, Starbuck). There are many up and coming young cows, the magazines are full of promising cows- it is an exciting time to be part of registered Holsteins.
Holstein World: Do you have any additional comments you’d like to provide?
Mark & Stephanie: The dairy business and the Holstein breed are full of hardworking dedicated people. We would like to thank all of our families and fellow Holstein breeders for their hard work in promoting the best dairy breed. Oregon breeders and the Pacific Northwest are full of great breeders.
