Medallion dies

By Geoff Adams

The Australian Holstein Sire MEDALLION  (Bundalong Marks Medallion VG86) has died at the age of 13.

Bred by Brian and Bill Anderson of Bundalong Holstein’s, Kongwak, Victoria, this son of another breed Legend, INFORMER was born in July 2005.

His breeding value contains many thousands of daughters and he still ranks amongst the breed’s best for mammary systems and farmer likeability.

MEDALLION entered service just before the commencement of the genomic era but was featured in the first group of bulls anywhere in the world to be marketed based on their genomic breeding values.
