Janosch Sets New Standard in Excellence

Newly available Jocko Besne son Janosch sets a remarkable new standard for GB dairy farmers as the only Holstein bull with ratings of ‘Excellent’ for the in-demand characteristics of milk production, UK Type Merit, udders and legs & feet.

From the renowned Blackstar cow family and a full brother of the successfully established Janssen, Janosch boasts figures of +800kgs for milk production and 2.97 Type Merit and has the best second crop figures yet of any Jocko son.

“Janosch now has over 4,000 daughters in more than 1,000 herds contributing to his production figures and 600 daughters in 285 herds behind his type data, so this is a well-proven dairy bull,” explains Nick Kirby of

“He is an outstanding example of the strength of German Holstein breeding and will be of great interest to dairy farmers in Britain who are seeking to build a herd for the future based on highly productive long-lived cows.

“This bull’s combination of production and type is unrivalled by any other Holstein currently available in the UK, and specifically Janosch has mammary figures at +2.5 and legs & feet at +2.51, which are both Excellent. With an overall £132 PLI to back up these individual elements of his proof, Janosch sits well within the Minimum Standards that we recommend should form the basis of future herd breeding.”

Janosch is available from through the company’s direct sales freephone number 0808 202 3230 or via the website.
