DG Checkmate in BullTalk

In the July edition of Holstein International featured DG Checkmate in BullTalk. DG Checkmate at the moment is a very popular bull in the line-up of the German AI RSH and has received his daughter proven index in April 2019. Since receiving his daughter proof the popularity of Checkmate is almost increasing by the day. Daughters of Checkmate show great persistency, health, high components, outstanding feet and legs and are  very fertile. His proof also shows that his offspring suffers less from digital dermatitis (DD-Control). Checkmate is a son of Aikman from Roccafarm Beacon Chrissy VG-87-2 Yr. And was bred and delivered by Diamond Genetics.

European Success in Japan!

We recently received a nice update from our partner in Japan and their success with the resulting offspring of embryo purchases made through Diamond Genetics. The embryo purchases have resulted in several high-ranking females and top-ranking sires. For example the current #2 index cow on the Japanese NTP rankings is Develop Balisto Lidia 7376, a Balisto daughter of Ven Dairy Snowman Lidia 4. Lidia 4 is a Snowman daughter with tremendous records (4.05 305d 17.391kgM 3.7% 643F 3.2% 556P) backed by an Italian cow family who delivered also bulls like Bertaiola MINCIO.
Another European embryo import success story came from the mating Battlecry x Vo Yanka who was sourced from WEH Holsteins (Hintze family) in Germany. The embryo imported resulted in 1 female and 3 bulls. The female from this mating is the former #1 NTP genomic heifer in Japan and now as she has freshened she is expected to be one of the highest cows in the Japanese NTP system with the new proofs coming up her Huey daughter is currently #2 on the Japanese rankings. From the 3 full brothers that resulted from this mating one full brother is the former #1 NTP young sire and currently #1 selling young sire in Japan! If you are searching for high quality embryos please don’t hesitate to contact Diamond Genetics ( We can assist from sourcing till delivery at the final destination of the buyer.
