MUSTANG x HENDORF x WAIDHAUS

“Mech i hom“ is a Bavarian dialect expression and means “I want to have” – what an appropriate name for this genomic young sire from the Traunsteiner GbR/Kirchensur (Bavaria)! On the one hand, MECHIHOM is absolutely interesting because of his bloodline: he’s one of only three MANDRIN-grandsons (paternal) in AI and surely the most complete of these three. From his father MUSTANG, even no other son is available. But MECHIHOM cannot only convince with his alternate pedigree, but also with his breeding pattern. He inherits a high amount of milk (+1,170 kg) with a clearly positive protein content (+0.06%) and the desired beta-casein variant A2A2. Among the functional traits, the udder health and the calves’ vitality stand out. When we look at his linear profile, he leaves nearly nothing to desire: we expect framy, broad, long and deep cows with a good muscling, sloped rumps and long udders with a strong central ligament. His sons will convince in fattening with high daily gains, a high carcass percentage and a good EUROP trade class.
