Available in Britain from, this Laredo son has become a Red Holstein bestseller of some repute and is now closing in on half a million doses sold globally. He is a UK proven bull with 88 daughters in 42 herds, with his outstanding conformation credentials underlined by a strong linear and 0.2 Lifespan figure.

In the Holstein UK listings, Rustler has 21 daughters classified in the last six months averaging 84.5 compared to a dam average of 82.8. This 84.5 average score is the highest amongst bulls with 20-50 daughter classifications, and - at 66.7% - his proportion of daughters with a classification higher than their dams is also unrivalled.

Rustler is at present the highest-scored Red Holstein bull alive with his outstanding conformation emanating from an impressive family background. His dam Rochella (Milestone) is classified with EX 93 points and his maternal grand dam, the Leadman daughter Rhonda, scored at EX 94 in her 4th lactation. Her pedigree continues with a line up of excellent cows. Before Rhonda there is an EX 92 Starbuck, before her an EX 90 Elevation daughter and as the founder of this extraordinary cow family there is the world renowned G. C. Roxy with 97 points.

Rustler also transmits this extraordinary conformation to his daughters. With a breeding value of RZE 141 for conformation he is one of the best conformation sires worldwide.

Rustler is available from at £17/straw.
