Miss Hot Mama-Red-ET has earned the honor of Holstein Association USA's 2016 Star of the Breed. This recognition is given annually to a Holstein that exemplifies outstanding production combined with exceptional type.
Hot Mama-Red-ET is sired by Mr Apples Armani-ET, out of Starmark AD Hotstuff-Red-ET, Excellent-94, EEEEE. She made an outstanding milk record in her first lactation, calving in at 1-11, producing 33,520 pounds of milk, with 5.8 percent fat (1,940 pounds) and 3.5 percent protein (1,162 pounds) on a 274-day record. Hot Mama-Red-ET is classified Excellent-92, EEEEE. In 2016, Hot Mama-Red-ET placed fourth in the Senior Three-Year-Old class at the Eastern Fall National Holstein Show.
“Hot Mama is one of the easiest cows I have worked with. No matter where she goes, she does well,” says Matt Smith, Smith-Crest Holsteins. “She travels easily, and adapts well to new environments. She blends great dairy strength with her flashy type; she truly has the will to milk.”
