Junior Winter Show
On Friday the 17th of February the annual edition of the Junior Winter Show took place in Ettelbrück. As the show name includes, only heifers and young cows are entering this show. About 70 animals competed against each other this evening. The quality of the animals did challenge the young judge Torben Mehlbaum. Still, he did an excellent job.
Junior Champion, AHL Tictac was owned by Laure Scholtus closely followed by RIS Doorman Anna owned by Joé Schweigen. Emely Holly of AHL did impress in the group of second lactation cows, followed by Bradnick Hussarde of HBL.The honors of the Grand Champion took WR Armani Maryline (owned byPit Bosseler and Joé Schweigen) who was also the winner of the first lactation.
A small but fine show came to an end and after the After-show-party Luxembourgs breeders are already looking forward to the next edition.

Staff Notice
Dear Business Friends!

On February, 28th 2017 is my last day as Commercial Manager with Holstein Forum, and my farewell from the daily operation in the breeding industry.

A big thanks to Bernd Sommer & the competent, ambitious and passionate HF(P) team for great years and learnings. You people are terrific, please continue with your good work! I will for sure miss you!

I'm forever grateful for the opportunities and moments I've had working with so many amazing people, and their passion for the Holstein breed. For the future, I would like to wish all business partners and friends of Holstein Forum all the best!

Last but not least important I’d like to introduce you Astrid Fertig:
Astrid has been working at Holstein Forum since January 2017. She is responsible for the Marketing and Accounting. As a native Danish she enriches the company through her optimistic and humorous nature. The international office clerk has a solid experience in various, globally active companies in the area of product marketing and bookkeeping, which she brings to the Holstein Forum. However, influenced due to her childhood on the grandparents farm, her down-to-earth-attitude has always maintained. Astrid speaks German, Danish and English.

On behalf of the Holstein Forum team I wish Astrid very welcome and much pleasure and success in her new role.

Swiss Expo 2017
Great successes for Holstein Bosseler, Antimonium, C-Sold & Rising Star Holsteins

January 13 and 14, not only brought much snow fall in Lausanne, but also the decision about this year's winner of the SwissExpo. As every year, this well-known event, in addition to the unique quality of the animals, offered a spectacular show which inspired the audience. For the first time, also Luxembourgian animals have been shown in the famous Swiss ring. A team of motivated Luxembourgian young breeders took the opportunity to participate in the competition with their own cattle, and this with success...

The results of a first participation is something worth looking at. In the first and second category of the Red Holstein Heifers, 2 Matisse-Red daughters from the herd of C-Sold Holsteins reached a good 6th place each. Tightly followed by Antimonium Holsteins' red Attico daughter from the Ruleto family. Highlight of the first show day for the whole team was surely the class victory of Wiesenfeld Joy-Red. This Lotus daughter, who was purchased by Holstein Bosseler Limpach in 2015, then won the Reserve Junior Champion award as well.

On Saturday was the day of the Holsteins. Here a Golden Dreams, as well as an Impression daughter of Holstein Bosseler Limpach, was placed in the middle of the starting field. RIS Solomon Anna, reached on a great 5th place in her class.

The collaboration of the whole team has given all young breeders a fabulous weekend.

The award of the Red Holstein Grand Champion went to Jowis Incas Flavia, followed by Mr. Savage Pasteque. Honorable Mention obtained Kolly-JL Vincent Coucoula.

DH Goldchip Darling was named the Grand Champion Holstein. Reserve Grand Champion became Du Bon Vent Inkapi in front of Pozosa Goldwyn Sonia.
