UK Storm Hits Europe

On 2nd February 2007 at the 6th European Open Holstein Show held in Montichiari, Italy a UK bred Holstein was exhibited and won in flamboyant style.



WYNDFORD S STORM REBECCA bred by Wilfred Maddocks, Chadwell Grange, Newport, Shropshire, managed by Ben Yates won the Senior Yearling class and finished 2nd Reserve Champion. Judge Brian Carscadden from Ontario Canada in his reasons commented: “…this is what the Holstein Breed is all about, being the youngest heifer in the class she gives nothing away in size excels in style and power, and moves on one of the best set of legs and feet I have ever seen on a yearling.”

Storm Rebecca was the first Pedigree Holstein to be exported after the export ban was lifted last year. She was sold at the Ex Factor Sale managed by Harrison & Hetherington for 4500gns to Mr Quim Serrabassa, Vic, Barcelona and Mr Miren Aradeo, Gatika Vizcaya, Spain.

Auctioneer Glyn Lucas who managed the Ex Factor Sale travelled to Italy to show the heifer for her new owners said: “this is a fantastic achievement for her new owners and for British Breeding. New markets are opening every day and this result will only help our image in a very positive way, we will be running the Ex Factor Sale again this year on the 15th June and already have enormous interest from mainland Europe.”

The show was attended by farmers from all over Europe, with Holsteins being exhibited from Italy, Spain, France, Germany, Holland and Belgium. Two Hundred Sixty Holsteins were shown, AL-PE DORIAN was Grand Champion coming from famous breeders All. Beltramino Italy. The cow was in her fifth lactation and also won the same show last year as well as the Italian National show 2006.
