One of the official judges, Hartwig Meinikmann from RUW in Germany commented “Maybe no other cow has ever had such a huge influence on the Holstein breed as Missy.” The other judge, Ryan Starkenburg from ABS commented “Wesswood-HC Rudy Missy – what more needs to be said.” Missy has 103 offspring in the US with 10 EX, 29 VG and 17 GP daughters by 18 different sires. MUSTER’s dam, Outside Mollie EX-90 DOM has 11 VG daughters by 5 different sires. As one can see, MUSTER should cross well on all bloodlines. MUSTER was acquired from Arlan Garber in Chambersburg, PA. Arlan purchased embryos from Pine-Tree to bring the Rudolph Missy bloodline into his Stone-Rail herd. MUSTER’s full sisters at Arlan’s and at Pine-Tree are proving to be successful brood cows in their own right. You will see more from this branch of the Missy’s in the future. Daughter Information MUSTER daughters are built to last as they are smaller in stature with a balance of strength and dairyness. Cows walk on a solid set of feet and legs being straighter through the hock. Equally important, daughters have well attached udders being exceptionally high and wide in the rear udder. A strong center support brings ideal length teats close together. Mating Information MUSTER will run well in herds using the following GMS options: Durability and NM$.
