De Bertaiola Lidia’s, still going strong!

Vendairy Snowman Lidia 4 VG-86 was one of the first purchases for the Diamond Genetics breeding programme.
Meanwhile and after 3 longer lactations she has yielded 75.000 kgM with 4,0% fat and 3,35% protein! She has bred some outstanding daughters and granddaughters.
Her daughter DG Fanatic Lindsay, classified VG-88 as a first calver and her 2nd lactation stands at: 430d  20.0000kgM with 4,0%f and 3,4%p.
Her Tango granddaughter Vekis Laticia made 16.000kgM in her first lactation and averages 50kgM in the first 200days of her second lactation.
Furthermore: a straight Lidia 4 daughter by Balisto landed as an embryo in Japan and currently stands nr. 2 on the Japanese index list. This heifer called Develop Balisto Lidia classified GP-83 and is producing well.

So, Snowman Lidia 4 her milk and type genes have been passed on successfully. Regarding male offspring: her Polled Powerball son in Germany, named Pesto Pp, is very complete in his profile and could spread the Lidia genes even further!

Broeks Betty VG-88 her global impact

Embryos from Broeks Betty VG-88 not just went to the US and Canada, also Genetics Hokkaido from Japan invested in Betty-embryos. They bought Bookem embryos from this incredible Snowman daughter and the result was Omaura Brownie, the current nr. 1 Type bull and nr. 2 UDC bull in Japan! A tremendous result for this client of Diamond Genetics. Next to Brownie, Betty VG-88 – from an EX Shottle dam – is also dam to Broeks Tychip, who is selling well for AI Total. And last but not least, her great grandson by Charley, De Veelhorst DG Casino, is selling very well for VOST Leer, Germany. Casino currently ranks in the top 5 g RZG and is also 2700 g TPI and 340 g NVI.
