In March 2016 the first doses of DG CHALEY where shipped to the United States. Right away after arrival in the US, the AMS Genetics team distributed these doses for the first flushes and IVF-sessions. Among these first sessions was a top Yoder daughter at Hurtgenlea named Hurtgenlea Yoder Modesto. Looking back this early shipment was one of the most influential shipments to come from Europe to the United States since the semen of Shottle arrived.
Just before the New Year of 2017 the first DG Charley calves where born in the U.S. The results would come in in February… And then the results came in, first the group including former no.1 RZG bull Siemers Merryguy. But then the second group… Hurtgenlea Richard Charl was there… the New Number 1 GTPI and Net Merit.
An agreement with Sexing Technologies was made and as part of that agreement semen would come to Europe exclusive for contracts with Diamond Genetics and Sexing Technologies would use the bull in the United States. This partnership resulted in the highest GTPI bull born in 2018 in the United States Genosource CAPTAIN and the highest GTPI bull born in Europe DG PAUL.
Since August last year the first daughters of Hurtgenlea Richard Charl started to calf in. The daughters milked a lot and especially their components where at most impressive. Also their udders and feet & legs where better then expected…. This resulted in an impressive climb in his April 2021 breeding value bringing him to the most desirable title in the Holstein Breeding scene the number 1 place on the International TPI list! Being used heavily in the Diamond Genetics and it’s partners breeding programs there are several daughters on the way and pregnancies by his highest son Captain are coming. With these genetics Diamond Genetics ensures the necessary level of genetics to it’s clients among the world.
