Royal 2010 - and the unforgetable moment
There are many breeders around the world, who are united in one goal: to win a great show with one of their own show cows. But only a few breeder achieve this happiness.

Last Saturday, I was able to experience this unique moment with the whole Morsan team. Blondin Redman Seisme VG-89, Red Holstein Grand Champion at the Royal Winter Fair and the World Dairy Expo in 2010, was selected by the five judges of different breeds to become the "Supreme Champion". The jubilation in the team knew no bounds. Seisme is not only the first Grand Champion of Morsan Farms in one of the two most important Holstein shows around the world, but also the first R & W in the history of the Royal Winter Fair, which has received the title of "Supreme Champion".

Congratulations to Sandra & Morris Thalen, but especially to Chris Parry and his team. I am incredibly proud of this team, especially because I know how hard they have worked within the last 364 days to reach this unexpected success. This Saturday, the Morsan Team has written Holstein history!

Bernd & the whole Team of Holstein Forum

The Holstein Forum Team

Please support our aid campaign !
10 days ago, Andrew Rutter (Genus), Jürgen Hintze and myself were looking at beautiful Man-O-Man and Bogart calves from their best families. Today, except one calf, all of these are dead.

A terrible fire has completely burned down parts of the cow barn, milking parlour, a heifer barn and all calf hutches. Many
dozens of animals lost their lifes and the Hintze family a big piece of their future.

I want to help this enthusiastic breeder family and want to give them back some hope for a better future. For this reason, I
have asked some breeder friends to donate embryos, which I want to sell in co-operation with my Holstein Forum Team in the
"Holstein Forum Charity Embryo Sale", starting this Friday.

We sincerely want to thank Friedrich Köster (Köster KG), Dr. Christian Niewöhner (Gemeinschaftspraxis Bischoff & Niewöhner & Röcker), Karl-Heinz Eickhoff, Nico Gaede and Norbert Reher (CNN Holsteins), Chris Parry and the Thalen family (Morsan Farms),Manfred Uhrig (Brühlhof Holsteins) and Gerd Erhardt for the donated embryos.

Furthermore we want to thank Christine Topf (Milchrind), the team of Holstein International, Masterrind, Rinderunion West and
OHG for their support.

In addition to these embryos, we will also sell embryos from Hintze farms which cannot be implanted anymore because of this situation.

The complete revenue of this sale will be directly donated to the Hintze family to be invested in a new cow family.

Buyers will have, except shipping costs, no further costs in this sale.

We very much hope for YOUR support. Thanks a lot !

Bernd Sommer and the team of Holstein Forum (Petra Sommer, Elke Veith, Jutta Bäumer, Doris Ludwigs, Silke Dunker, Gidon Weinstein, Peter Vogelsang)

The sale starts Friday, July 30 at 10.00 am (CET) and will be closed on Sunday, August 1 at 22.00 pm (CET).
