BREEDERS ACHIEVEMENTS
Maundrils Molly 156 EX90 LP100
Bred and owned by Maundrils Farm Partnership
We would like to thank Holstein UK for the Gold Ribbon award received by Maundrils Molly 156 on completion of 100 tonnes.
We are more than happy to submit some information about this homebred cow for The Journal.
The sire of this cow was Hayleys Staringlow; this young bull was purchased by Rachel’s parents, David and Mary Watts, for their
Maundrils herd, from breeder Peter Padfield in Essex. A Hanoverhill Inspiration son, he was bred out of Hayleys Star Gloriette 2
VG87, a daughter of Donovan Sheik Gloriette EX94.
The dam of Molly 156 was a VG88 daughter of Duregal Astre Starbuck who calved eight times, while her grand dam was by
Ripvalley Valiant NI Russ.
Molly 156 was classified EX in 2005 and had already produced three heifers. The first was by Eastview Influence Mattie G and
this cow recently yielded over 13,000 litres in her fifth lactation. A Cogent Lucky daughter is also a high production cow and
combines this with a type score of 87 points.
The youngest daughter of Molly 156 is sired by Deslacs Milkstar, a deep bodied heifer. She calved in January and is not yet
classified, but is already showing promise in terms of both production and type.
The descendents of Molly 156 share her temperament, which is best described as strong willed, probably one reason for her
longevity.
It would be remiss of us not to mention that Terry Cox (Holmead) spotted the potential of Molly 156 as a freshly calved heifer,
during a visit for the Somerset herd’s competition over 10 years ago. He strongly advised us not to sell her - we now have the
opportunity to thank him for that good advice.

Gladwake Centurions
I’m pleased to enclose certificates for four of our 100
tonne cows.
Gladwake Marshall Calypso EX90-2E was born in July 1994
and left the herd in 2008. Her lifetime yield was 103,787 kg
and she was sired by a Hampshire Cattle Breeders test bull,
Jo Wal Mac Lead Marshall.
Gladwake Benchmark Roxy 2 VG89 was born in August
1995, and again left the herd last year after a lifetime
yield totalling 106,995 kg. She traces back to Bob Miller’s
famous Roxy family and her fourth dam is none other than
Glenridge Citation Roxy EX97, although the family has yet
to really get going here.
The third new 100 tonner is Gladwake Starbuck Priska 2
VG88, who was born in 1995 and, yet again, left the herd
in 2008. Her lifetime yield of 100,259 kg was enhanced by
her producing seven daughters from 10 calvings. Her best
daughter is probably a VG87 Mattie G with six consecutive
lactations over 11,000 kg in 305 days. Old Priska was our Above Gladwake Starbuck Priska VG88 LP100 produced
last Starbuck in the herd – what a great bull he was in his seven heifers in 10 calvings in addition to 100 tonnes of milk.
time!
Below Gladwake Southwind Gem 14 VG88 has produced
The last new 100 tonner is Gladwake Southwind Gem
over 118,000 kg in eight lactations and is due again now.
14 VG88, born in September 1996 and still in the herd
after 118,631 kg. She is due to calve her ninth any time. A
medium sized cow with great body capacity, she’s the sort
of cow you hardly notice as she keeps on producing milk.
The Gem family originated in the Elliot family’s Bromham
herd in Wiltshire and we are currently milking 24 other
Gems, and we have sold several who are doing well for
their new owners. One of her daughters, Gladwake Bonnie
Gem 4 GP84 -2yr by Gladwake Blackstar Bonnie, has given
52,714 kg in four lactations and is due again now.
Sadly, during 2008 we said goodbye to Gladwake Cubby
Eva VG, who featured on the October 2006 Journal, after
she completed a lifetime yield of 131,883 kg. Like Ryemuir
Valiant Celia, featured in the August 2008 Journal, our Eva
family also originated at Winton.
