ADVENT-RED Named Premier Sire of the 2009
November 20th 2009

PLAIN CITY, Ohio, Nov. 16, 2009 — It was another banner day for king of the show ring, 7HO7872 KHW Kite ADVENT-RED-ET (EX-94) at the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair (RAWF) Red and White Show. Coming off a superb showing at World Dairy Expo and with daughters consistently taking the top spots in their classes, ADVENT-RED once again garnered the Premier Sire Banner.

“ADVENT-RED’s impact on the Holstein breed continues to build. He has single handedly elevated both the quantity and more importantly, the quality of Red and White cattle.  His sons and grandsons at Select will continue in ADVENT’s footsteps. ADVENT-RED is now included in conversations as one of Select Sires’ most influential bulls ever,” commented Brian Garrison, Select Sires’ dairy sire analyst.
