ABS Global’s BOLIVER passes away
June 5, 2013

29HO10124 End-Road PVF BOLIVER has passed away following a successful life of 14 years.

Since his release in 2003, BOLIVER daughters have been known for tremendous udders for trouble-free cows and come from a well-known cow family that improves form and function. This great combination of family genetics and tremendous udders made BOLIVER daughters easy to like and find in the cow pen.

“BOLIVER has been a favorite of everyone at ABS, including our genetics staff, sales representatives around the globe and the barn crew that worked with him every day.  According to our production staff, BOLIVER ranks as the second highest lifetime semen producer in ABS history, behind only DIE-HARD,” said Ryan Starkenburg, sire selection manager at ABS Global. “BOLIVER continues to have a big impact on the Holstein breed through his daughters, sons and grandsons.  I am sure that wherever dairy farmers appreciate medium-sized, fancy cattle that last with outstanding udders and profitable production, they will appreciate BOLIVER descendents.”

Headquartered in DeForest, Wisconsin, ABS Global is the world‐leading provider of bovine genetics, reproduction services, technologies and uddercare products. Marketing in more than 80 countries around the globe, ABS has been at the forefront of animal genetics and technology since its founding in 1941. ABS Global is a division of Genus plc.
