Red and White Holsteins

Red and White Holsteins have a recessive gene for hair color. The traditional color for holsteins is black and white. In order to get a Red and White Holstein calf, a red hair color gene must be given by both the sire and the dam. 75% of the world’s dairy cows are Red and White in color, although they are not all purbreed holsteins. Red and White Holsteins are gaining popularity in the United States where about 90% of the dairy cattle are Holsteins. Recently, there have been several popular sires that the Regisered Holstein Breeders have used that are Red and White Holsteins or Red Carrier Sires.

Some of those most popular bulls that are Red and White Holsteins or Red Carriers are Ja-Bob Jordan-Red, Kinglea Leader RC, Markwell Kite RC, Pursuit September Storm RC, Brookknook Milestone Red, STBVQ Rubens RC, Ladino Park Talent RC, Indiahead Red Marker RC, KHW Kite Advent Red, and Renown Factor RC.Â

 The Red and White Holsteins will have a huge growth in numbers over the next few years in the US and in the World.
